Updates from Stock Connections
January has been a very exciting month here at Stock Connections. I have had the pleasure of attending some dynamic events, meeting some incredible people and working with some outstanding resources. Take a moment to learn about this month and all that has come with it.
Community Leader

It is one of our fantastic crowdfunding resources we have here at Stock Connections and we highly recommend it to all of our clients. This site features online videos and seminars to help businesses and investors learn more about the practice of crowdfunding. Their CrowdLeader application allows for the highest level of organization with task lists, investor profiles and direct chat features. I strongly believe that equity crowdfunding will help thousands of good business owners access the cash they need to grow and remain competitive. I encourage you to take a look at my Community Leader affiliate page and contact me for any questions you may have on the topic of crowdfunding.

Book Corner
"Professional Presence, a Four-Part Guide to Building Your Personal Brand" by Peggy Noe Stevens. This is an excellent book describing a four step process for developing the soft skills necessary for career advancement. You'll learn to communicate effectively, build powerful relationships, build your personal brand, and get the job you want. It's a real world guide for advancing from talented team member to respected leader. I highly recommend it!
When You're Ready to Take Your Next Step - Weekend Retreat 
Mary LoVerde is a highly achieved speaker that I had the pleasure of meeting at a NAWBO event this past December where she was the featured guest. She is speaking again at a very exciting weekend event in Newport Beach next month.

Brocade Event was a Huge Success!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the incredible event.  Every attendee has very positive reviews. Maxine Goulding said, "This was an outstanding event. The networking was robust, the presentations were very informative and the food was excellent." Carla Cobb Davis also said, "It was a wonderful event. So many connections were made and the Brocade Executives not only delivered informative leadership presentations but stayed to the end of the reception to meet all of the NAWBO women. The food was delicious with the wine was from some of Napa and Sonoma's best wineries owned by women." Special thanks to Charleen Hamel and the Brocade Women's Leadership Group and Carissa Chappellet, Chappellet Winery and Amelia Ceja, Ceja Winery for putting on an exceptional event.

Mark your calendars for more awesome NAWBO events:
