Friendship NAMS GirlfriendsBig or small, dreams are passionate goals that can transform our lives. Thank goodness I have my Girlfriend Group of Entrepreneurs.

And, the people who help us in reaching them, are indispensable mentors and cheerleaders. In many cases, girlfriends are the ones who help us see and reach our dreams. And, when you bring a group of girlfriends together, with the goal of challenging and helping each other, magical things can happen.

I know. Several times in my life, as I was following my entrepreneurial goals, I found (or started) a gathering of like-minded women to help each other. Like my WE (women entrepreneurs) group. Each have different skills, experiences, personalities and passions. Our dreams and businesses are diverse, but our friendship and support for each other keep us together and actively stretching ourselves.

WE meet monthly to discuss our updates, challenges, achievements and goals. WE hold each other accountable and offer grace if we were not able to achieve what we had hoped. WE listen, cheer, share, brainstorm and support.

Meet my WE girlfriends: Tina is the owner of Casa DeLorenzo – and makes exquisite custom pillows, as well as offering Interior Design Services. Jennifer is the Director of Beaded Hope – Beaded Hope’s mission is to fight HIV/AIDS one person at a time by providing South Africans with the opportunity to earn an income, support their families and nurture their creativity while preserving age-old beadworking traditions.*  Judy is a writer with lots of experience, promise and ideas for PublishSmart. Joyce is opening an online store of beautiful heirloom clothes and gifts for children – watch for HeirloomsToBe.com!

Do you have dreams? Aspirations? Creative ideas you’d love to pursue? Need some accountability? You don’t need to go it alone – bring along your girlfriends! Start a girlfriend group and dream together. Share the successes and struggles, joys and jolts along the way. But you’ll love the company along with you on the journey!
