Went into a building to utilize a computer. It was interesting to see the Hannan House Cafe, littered with people. A display was on the table featuring WOMENS ENTREPRENEURS OF AMERICA GLOBAL, INC . I asked the front desk receptionist what was going on; who are those people. He began to tell me, 2-3 minutes, I walked in sat down, joined W E.A. it's been a support group with goals up hill ever since.Yes, Madame Founder Yolanda LAMAR-WILDER, drives, giving back helping one another.It's been perhaps about eight months with them and I'm still learning. Together, we're going to take it to level of helps self-helps.I enjoy being a part of an American group to help others.Respectively,Apostle-Pastor Renee Smith

Talk about ratings, the only thing that could give this non profit WEA...Women Entrepreneurs of America a 5 star rating is having every women in the business world or even with an idea of a business involved members with this organization. The support and alliance I've encountered has been not only profitable in the area of information and collaboration but also in support and encouragement that every business owner needs male or female. I'm a firm believer that the only thing we can do successfully alone is fall without anyone to assist you in getting back up again. It takes a partner, a group, a collective party to work together and build a legacy that others can gleem from. Thank you Women Entrepreneurs Of America for being the assistance I needed to take my non-profit and business to the next level. What you do for me, I know you can do for others as well, as a global organization assisting other women all across the world weather displaced, reintergrating back into society or simply in need of a collaborative support system to aide in building ones business from start up to success WEA does it effortlessly. Thank you and GOD's Speed.
