What is it Like to Serve on a Board of Advisors for ATHENAPowerLink?

PAS 2010Serving on the board of advisors was very rewarding and a valuable experience for me.  I met and learned from new associates as well as help Epson Lane to grow in many ways.

I love growth in a company as well as people. I felt I had something to offer this women-owned business.  There were similarities in our businesses — she had route drivers, sales people and was learning more about finance.  I have run these departments in the past at Liniform.  She was very open to new ideas.  She wanted to learn and help her business succeed.  We still meet on a monthly basis.  We have developed a great relationship.

I would recommend this rewarding experience to others.  By serving on the board of advisors for ATHENAPowerLink, you meet new business people in the community and you help the person grow their business.  The organization and experience are very worthwhile.

DCBFirst and foremost, I looked forward to sharing information and helping another woman entrepreneur. I have been helped so often, I saw it as an opportunity to give back.

I worked with Leslie individually to help with her social media presence and also provided a social media policy manual for her review. She was already successfully using social media, I just helped by answering questions and encouraging her in her participation.

Would I recommend that someone apply to be an advisory for the ATHENAPowerLink program? Absolutely! Each board member brought so much value to the table for the business owner and I believe Leslie’s business has benefited from the experience.

I learned more than I shared. Leslie’s energy, commitment and passion for her business is infectious and inspiring. I also learned from the others on the board. Great team.
