The Iowa Center allowed me to set awareness of myself and where I was at, which gave me a gauge for my success. They also gave me an opportunity to support and meet other women in the community!

When I found the Iowa Center for Economic Success, I was going through a split professionally and personally. I needed to learn more of the business and financial side of running a business but had no time to go back to school because I was still running my business. The Iowa Center aligned perfectly with my time and availability. They gave me the tools to be a smarter business owner and gave me a reliable network.

I firmly believe I would not have started my own business had I not found The Iowa Center. It would have remained an idea…and never actually brought to fruition.
