As a new business owner, I've had the chance to meet and work with some truly fantastic people in the past 15 months. In today's post, I'd like to introduce you to a few of them, so you can tap into their expertise whenever you need!
Lynn Lessell: Inner Power Partners
Lynn has been my mentor from the very beginning, even before I embarked on my entrepreneurial journey. I've been a proud member of her "anti-networking group" since April 2022. This unique gathering, known as Inner Power Partners, serves as a vital support network for individuals from diverse business backgrounds, particularly entrepreneurs.
Currently, it boasts six dynamic groups spanning from West Palm Beach, Florida, to Coral Springs, each composed of incredibly inspiring individuals. Every week, these groups convene to celebrate our victories, dive into thought-provoking topics curated by Lynn, and leave with a wealth of positive support and valuable insights to fuel our businesses and our personal lives.
Lynn, a dedicated health and life coach, is the driving force behind this empowering community. I owe much of my business's success to her unwavering guidance and her commitment to fostering connections and supporting her community. Lynn and IPP have been the cornerstone of my entrepreneurial journey, and I'm profoundly grateful for her influence.

Juana Venegas: Manu for Inclusion Foundation
Juana is Mother to Manu, an amazing 11 year old boy with Autism, and a wonderful IPP member! This is her non profit's mission: "We empower families with neurodiverse children to seek community inclusion through programs or events for wellness, love, personal development, and emotional intelligence."
My connection with Juana goes back over a year, almost as long as I've been tutoring her son. Throughout this time, she's been an invaluable pillar of support for both me and my business. Juana's unwavering dedication to providing resources for families stems from her genuine compassion and heartfelt passion to making sure her son gets everything he needs to be successful. In fact, we recently collaborated on a podcast episode where we delved deeper into the topic of working with neurodiverse children. Stay tuned for its release, as it promises to offer valuable insights and perspectives!

Nicole Cumberbatch: The Motherhood Village
Nicole is another amazing IPP member and the founder of the Motherhood Village and podcast. Her motto is: "It takes a village to raise a child, but most importantly it takes a village to uplift a mother."
Nicole is a true advocate for mothers, offering a wide range of support services and resources that cater to every facet of motherhood. I had the privilege of being a guest on her insightful podcast, where she regularly invites incredible women to share their wisdom with the moms of South and Central Florida.
The Motherhood Village isn't just about podcasting; it's a dynamic hub that extends its reach through webinars, workshops, and a wealth of prenatal and postpartum resources. If you're a mother or soon-to-be mother, connecting with Nicole and immersing yourself in The Motherhood Village Community is an absolute must for enriching your motherhood journey!
April Rehrig: RISE Educational Advocacy
I had the pleasure of connecting with April through social media back in April of this year. Although she resides in California, the moment I began following her Instagram page, it became evident that our passions aligned seamlessly. Our first face-to-face encounter took place via Zoom, and from that point on, our collaborative journey has flourished.
April's invaluable contribution extends nationwide as she provides indispensable IEP (Individualized Education Program) support to families across the United States. Her website boasts a treasure trove of resources, including training modules on navigating the complexities of child testing requests, comprehending your child's reports, and empowering parents to actively participate in IEP meetings. I am truly honored to be counted among the resources featured on her platform.
April's extensive background in education, spanning many years in schools, paved the way for her remarkable venture, RISE. She holds a myriad of impressive titles, including Board Certified Educational Advocate (BCEA), Fellow; Licensed Educational Psychologist, Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist (CASDCS), Master IEP Coach®, and she's a devoted parent, among other distinctions. If you ever find yourself in need of guidance or insight regarding IEP-related matters, look no further than April; she is unequivocally the go-to expert to consult.
I have been so blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people, especially women! There are many more people that offer resources in the education world but that will have to be another blog for another time! I hope this brings you resources and support that you didn't even know existed!
