Women Business Owners (WBO) is an international 501c3 non-profit organization, founded in February 2004. WBO members have been providing local business groups around the country for several months now. Recently, some members of WBO have decided to start local WBO business chapters.
Tashia Flucas is currently forming WBO Chapters in the Pinole and
San Francisco, California areas. “I wanted to create more networking
with women within the community. WBO has a great outlook and I share a
vision that WBO has of bringing women together. I will be holding 2
meetings – 1 in Pinole and 1 in San Francisco. My hope in holding these
networking meetings is to build beneficial relationships and inspire
women in their businesses – I always say, “the sky’s
the limit!” Tashia replied when asked why she decided to become a WBO Chapter Leader.
Tashia will be starting her meetings in June. The first meeting for Pinole is scheduled for 11:30am Wednesday, June 11 at the Pinole Library, located at 2925 Pinole Valley Road, Pinole, CA 94564. Attendees are able to purchase a light lunch during this meeting.
The first San Francisco meeting will be a breakfast meeting and is tentatively scheduled for Friday, June 20th, location and time to be announced. For more information on these meetings, please contact Tashia at 510.455.4597 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members are allowed to attend 3 meetings free of charge. The format of the meetings will consist of refreshments, sharing of WBO’s mission and vision and how WBO can provide resources and assistance for women, a guest speaker, and then time will be allotted for networking.
Tashia goes on to explain that the WBO meetings are different than other group networking meetings in that the cost of the meeting and membership with WBO is very affordable for women in business or women just starting their businesses. WBO is building a support network for the woman and her business. They offer member 2 member benefits, a referral program and many other benefits for their members. WBO’s support is different from industry-specific support – they focus on the woman behind the business, as well as the business itself. WBO assists women to obtain resources they wouldn’t be able to obtain independently.

WBO President and Founder, Anna Campbell says, “We are working on providing buildings/office space for women to operate their businesses from. WBO will be able to purchase vacant buildings in targeted cities with the support of national and local contributions and donations. WBO will renovate these buildings to accommodate a minimum of 10 office spaces, 1 boardroom, and an open front area for a receptionist. (1 office space will be used for a WBO Branch Office). We will rent out each space for $200-$1,000 (depending on size of space) a month for return revenue. Each office will be equipped with internet service, phone jack, and one phone answering line.” WBO’s motto is, “We are building businesses, one building at a time!”
Planned upcoming events for WBO include an online event, The JULY EXPO, where women will learn, shop, laugh, and network in an online conference room. Women from all walks of life will be joining together to grow their business, meet other women, and share what they have learned through networking.
