Call Me the Historian
Claudia Lewis, Full Circle Art Studio I joined the Business Womenâ€™s Connection in 1990 when I opened my first business at age 34. I was looking for an inexpensive way to get started by connecting and forming friendships with other like-minded women. Over the past 28 years, I estimate I have had the pleasure of […]
My BWC family
Karelle Scharff, Best Mac Solutions/Peak to Peak Websites I was one of the founding members of the original Allie Lassen Leads Club, back in the early 90s, when I was a professional photographer. I had a hiatus for a few years, while I worked in Estes Park and raised a child. When my job came […]
What does BWC mean to me?
Ginger Estes, Stage Right Home Staging I was looking for a group of women to join soon after I started my Pampered Chef business. I didn’t really know what networking was all about.

â€œConnectionâ€ Is The Key

The Value of the Business Womenâ€™s Connection

Iâ€™ve found The Business Womenâ€™s Connection to be the most valuable group of businesswomen Iâ€™ve been involved with. The smart, successful, and supportive women in this group bring great ideas to the […]
Michelle Burnham, Carefree Travel I first learned about Business Womenâ€™s Connection from my mom. She was an original member and occasionally I would fill in for her when she was out of town.

What is Art For?
â€œArt is not a thing; it is a way.â€Â Â ~Elbert Hubbard Imagine a wedding. The bride wears a special dress. Her bridesmaids wear gowns and carry flower bouquets. The groom wears a suit or a tuxedo as do his groomsmen. The guests dress up too, but are careful not to draw attention away from the […]
