Why was Inspired Women Business Alliance created?
The reason I chose this journey to help. I'm Miranda, creator of IWBA. IWBA really is a personal mission.
I lost my mom in 2006 to cancer, she was only 51. Being an only child and not from a big / close family, I was devastated. My world came crashing down. I missed her words, her hugs, her entirely. Many moons passed and I still was left with an emptiness nothing could fill. My career as a Behavioral Modification Specialist was providing the distraction but something was really starting to break away. I quit my job. I became submerged and flooded with memories and regrets that our time together was so brief.
Seeing the dawn before me...
My mom she was so talented, giving, and compassionate. Traditional Native bead work that would rival anything in a museum. She would whip up my costumes for Renaissance Faire over night. Compassion was her middle name. Everyone she touched knew how genuine her purpose was. She taught me much more I realized after she was gone.
I promised to utilize the very essence of her love. I've been told I am good at speaking to people, networking, and understanding. These are gifts from my mom. Gifts are to be shared. I tell this to everyone that ask, "what do you charge?". I only charge for my services, graphic design, public relations, marketing etc. But to teach women how to empower themselves and others they meet along their journey, that is powered by love, caring, and wanting the best for women.
Vickie Ann Clark is the inspiration for Inspired Women Business Alliance! Every action we create by supporting women in creative business reaches women that are looking for help.
A little over a year ago an idea was being forged from grief, that idea turned into a beautiful grassroots organization of women. Exceptional creators; vying for consideration, sharing their imaginations for all to see.
This is why I do what I do. This is why it is so important to empower these women. This is why you should choose to support small business whenever possible.
