As we begin more of our member highlights, It is important to go back to the beginning…back to the beginning where Women’s Networking Group began. It began with just a handful of women who wanted to gather with other like minded women. Kari Sikorski was one of those women. She was one of the founding members and her infectious smile is one of the reasons that made others feel welcome, that they belonged. Today she share’s a little of herself and you can understand how her presence is a vital part of the foundation of this group we are all proud to be a part of.

Share something about yourself that can’t be found on your resume.
I am still a Midwesterner in my heart (from WI), and I feel most at home and free driving down a country dirt road on a Summer day with the windows open and the stereo up loud.

Who is/has been your role model/mentor? And what is one key thing they taught you?
My parents. They taught me to “Take it apart and figure out how it works and how to fix it, or make your own.

If you could travel anywhere in the world – money is not an issue – where would you go and why?
Bora Bora, and stay in an overwater bungalow!

What is a motto or phrase you live and/or work by?

“The most difficult thing is the decision to act. The rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life and the procedure. The process is its own reward.” ~Amelia Earhart~

Who is your must-listen-to or must-read author, blog or video blog? How do they inspire, motivate, encourage and/or help you?

Chase Jarvis,    He is a positive, tells it like it is, inspiring creative. His business advice is clear and efficient, and delivered in a not too emotional, go get it type of way and it makes your brain say… well, yeah! Let’s go!

Any last words of wisdom to share with UTWNG members and future members?

Find your thing
and do that thing
better than anybody else
does that thing
even if you think
that thing has no value
because I promise you that it does.
And I promise you that
other people will see
this value too.

~ Chase Jarvis ~
