i am a 48 year old female african american chef. i have worked my whole life to hone my skills as a culinary profesional. i enrolled into the Womens Initiative program to try and get the tools to help my open Feathers poultry cafe in Alameda Ca. After spending the last 30 years sharing my passion and my ideas with employers, they are successful and i have very little to show for it. now im ready to try and do it for myself and Womens Initiative is an awesome program that is helping me reach my goals. ive learned so much about my lifes work that i wasnt aware of before i did this program. financial aspect, projections, passions and ideas are all a part of what they ask for when they teach you how to write a business plan. they EVERYTHING to light to help you realize you options as a small business owner. I LOVE WI. the staff is great, the instructors are awesome im gonna miss them when its all over. we graduate at the end of july and i feel very strongly that once i submit my business plan and join the success link program, WI will put me intouch with the people i need to help me live my dream. once i get the funding i will hit the ground running and i wont stop until Feathers poultry cafe is the greatest in place Alameda and i plan to use as many WI alumni as i can in my business. thank you.

The Women's Initiative for Self Employment is a truly a great organization. I am blessed to have received solid business training as well as an extensive mature network of supporters and access to business opportunities. I owe my success and future success to WI. To date, I have launched my spice blend lines in 25 Bay Area Stores and now am expanding to Mid-West. I am working with Bay Area Schools on Healthy Eating Campaigns and Fundraising Programs. Love WI, love the supporters... love the skills to help me reach and exceed my breakeven point before the end of this year. Janis Callon / Founder - Community Spice Company
