With hindsight joining The Athena Network has been a fabulous decision.

At the time I wasn’t sure I wanted to network in a solely female only environment as my business was aimed at men and women. I also had memories of a corporate job where it was women only and particularly spiteful at times.

Over the last 7 years as a member of several Athena groups I have developed my presentation skills and now actively search out talking opportunities to share what I’ve learned with my group about running a business. I have seen a very impressive return on investment over that time (1462%) and now see that women buy fitness from women and, when they enjoy it, send their husbands to buy too!

I recommend Athena and networking to anyone wanting to expand their business not just through financial growth, but through enhanced learning, collaboration, support and connections.
