How you heard about NiPEWN
NIPEWN is a vision that was birthed by a group of women who came together on the international women’s day 2016 to find a way to move professional and entrepreneurial women forward. I was fortunate to be in that meeting
The Impact of NiPEWN in your life, career or business and relationship with other women.
NiPEWN has impacted on everything that concerns me positively. In this organization I have found a group of highly cerebral women who come together once a week to develop and upgrade themselves. My business has had a major paradigm shift and the ROI and time have been most rewarding.
On perception earlier had about other women and being in a group
My past jobs had exposed me to working with strong women so I have always admired and looked up to female coaches. However I was worried about relocating to Akwa Ibom state because I didn’t know If that connect would be available here and I’m glad I’ve found it in this group.
Belonging to NiPEWN has connected to a group of women who do not only set goals but help each other achieve their individual goals by creating accountability partners. I now set and surpass my goals quaterly.
I see new heights every day and have learned through this network not to dwell on any achievement.
NiPEWN is the destination for any woman who wants to make global impact.
