FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 12, 2020
FORT COLLINS, Co – Women Entrepreneurs and Business Owners (WEBO) Network is excited to announce the launch of a new Fort Collins Networking Group. The new chapter will support women business owners in the Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley community with professional development and networking programs and events.
Founded in Broomfield in 2016, WEBO Network offers independent business women opportunities for networking, relationship building, education, mentorship, and alliances. Primarily targeted to women business owners and solopreneurs with revenues under $250,000 WEBO offers monthly events and programs that support these female leaders in their personal and professional development. The group’s tagline “Connect. Support. Grow.” embodies its mission to provide a forum for women entrepreneurs and business owners to expand their professional networks and growing their businesses while supporting, encouraging and learning from each other.
The Fort Collins Networking Group of WEBO Network will be led by Alison Proffit, owner of Proffit Coach a sales and business training, consulting and coaching practice specializing in helping small business owners become Rockstar salespeople. A public speaker and trainer, Profit is involved in Startup Week Fort Collins and many other events and organizations supporting the small business community.
Proffit has more than 20 years of experience which expands across Human Resources HR), Operations, Sales and Marketing. Much of her career was spent in HR leadership roles. She is a Certified Professional Coach through iPEC, an ICF-accredited program. In 2019, after four failed attempts to launch her business part-time, she took the leap full-time into her business and has seen great success from the outset. The level of drive and the connection with the community that she has established in the past five months is impressive.
“It has always been a dream of mine to give back to the small business community in ways that expand beyond myself and my own business. A big part of what I do in my business is help others learn how to sell authentically so that they can experience a greater level of success and fulfillment in their life. Having come from an HR/Learning and Development background, I am excited when I help someone learn something new or see something with new perspective. This passion is so perfectly aligned with what WEBO is all about,” says Proffit.
Katherine McGraw Patterson (KP), Founder of WEBO Network, adds “We are thrilled to have Alison accept the position as Managing Director of our Fort Collins Networking Group. She has the talent and energy to contribute to the growth of this new location, and the larger WEBO Network organization. Her passion for working with small business owners and her knowledge and involvement in the Northern Colorado entrepreneurship community is perfectly suited to guide our members as we continue our mission to provide professional development and community building to women business owners.”
