WHAT YOU’VE GOT:

  • Relationship Builder - You are the party planner, the go-to resource, the one friends (and their friends) call or text or Facebook to find out what’s going on. You live for making connections and you love building community among women to reach a common goal.
  • Socially Savvy: You like talking to individuals one-on-one as well as talking to groups – you are a people person. You enjoy communicating on social media and love using communication and digital tools.
