I first met Jo-Ann via Rare Birds, her networking club for female start-up and business founders. In my experience Jo-Ann is a dynamic, dedicated and motivating person who is passionate about entrepreneurship and creating opportunities for people from all backgrounds and walks of life. As an example when I was first launching my website and promoting myself on social media last year, her blog, newsletter and membership special offers plus her personal support were a regular source of inspiration and encouragement to me. Jo-Ann is also a great connector and promoter; she has put me in touch with several individuals who have proven to be valuable contacts, interviewed me for her newsletter and promoted me on Twitter, all of which have contributed to exposure and growth for my business. If you’re a woman starting up a business I definitely recommend checking out Rare Birds and getting in touch with Jo-Ann!
