Women Mean Business

The Number #1 Resource For Women in Business in Eastern Ontario!

September 14, 2017 Newsletter


My lovely business partner, Gaby has always loved Irene Cara’s hit song “ What a Feeling” made famous in the movie “Flashdance”. I am surprising her by including a vintage video clip of Irene belting out this great song - see video link below and please enjoy too!

We love the inspiring lyrics, they embody the spirit of what Women Mean Business Network was founded on.

…….Take your passion

And make it happen

…...What a feeling…..

It’s the theme song for many entrepreneurs. But the passion can begin to wane especially when our fears and exhaustion begins to “sing” a louder song in our head and heart. How do we keep the passion aflame in spite of all the non stop daily challenges? How do we navigate our business or career in this ever changing landscape, especially when most of us wear so many hats in our daily lives?

Both Gaby and I have been blessed meeting so many strong, talented passionate women in business over the past few decades and from these questions and conversations, is how Women Mean Business Network was born . In just a few years we have become a network of over 740 women in business in the Greater Kingston Area.

Our passion is to bring great women together to connect, share information, to learn from each other and promote our businesses. WMB does this by offering dynamic mixers, educational workshops and online resources . No one is an island and frankly it’s too lonely.

When we come together, to inspire, and cheer each other on, something amazing and magical happens. We become inspired and stronger, our mindset changes and our businesses begin to flourish even more and wow “what a feeling! “  We hope to see you soon.

Josie and Gaby
