WISE women receive nonprofit status

MARYSVILLE — WISE (Women Inspiring Successful Entrepreneurs) are excited to announce their newly founded status as a nonprofit. WISE, based in Marysville, is an organization for women in business seeking personal and professional growth. Their nonprofit status opens up new avenues for funding, and assists WISE in pursuing their mission to help women grow their businesses wisely.

WISE was founded by three local businesswomen — Judy Bradley, owner of Better Your Business; Carin Weier, owner of Weier Wine Tasting; and Diane "Scotty" Irwin, owner of The Design Company — in response to women they connected with who were looking for something other than just another business networking group.

WISE facilitates "Mastermind Groups" and focused workshops that aim to create opportunities to strategize and connect with other professional women. The Mastermind Groups are designed to give women the opportunity to celebrate business triumphs, and to receive or provide strategies used to tackle business challenges. The focused workshops are built to provide tools and tangible takeaways that inspire, motivate and teach successful business tactics.

WISE women meet on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, at the Holiday Inn Express in Marysville. Mastermind Groups are brown bag lunch events from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The next focused workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, June 5, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
