"Feedback Fuels Business"
Founder & CEO-Sisters In Business, Publisher
Thanks to all of
who have shared their comments about the new
Sisters In Business.Net eNewsletter.
We were happy to roll-out the new upgraded version to you;
and are now happy to hear of your praises! We are also
happy to see the overall impact of the newsletter, as well
as that of the new
Sisters In Business.Net Website.
According to statistics from our website and email marketing
reports, viewership and readership for both continue to
In this issue we
would like to focus on how important feedback is to
Much progress has been made since Sisters In Business'
inception on February 14 2006, and the feedback from the
community has been used as a barometer along the way.
We also look forward to your sharing with us the February
15, 2007 Grand Opening celebration of our official new
website Sisters In Business.Net and 1st Year Anniversary.

our ramp-up to the world-wide-web eleven months ago, we have
provided a vast amount of E-Commerce and Email Marketing:
online networking, advertising, and marketing solutions, for
our network as well as for those working in city government,
campaigning for election, hosting special events, providing
community service programs, and more.
What has been
the driving force behind all the effort? A powerful
passion to empower women-owned and small businesses in their
communities, to operate more successfully in the 21st
century and to build wealth. That along with the community's
support and active buy-in for such an initiative has been
night, Sisters In Business was started by "jumping-in" with
faith, vision, a little "html" knowledge (hence the
rudimentary look of the original e-newsletter and website )
and a sketched outline of a business plan. This plan
was, is, and will continue to be a "work in progress", as in
business, it is a continuous process to develop and work a
business plan where customers can be served successfully, or
at least better, over and over again.
To all who have
received and read our newsletter, which is now being
distributed to communities--locally, regionally, nationally,
and, perhaps even globally, we would like to say a sincere
"Thank You". When a customer shares statements of
interests, insight, and other input, it makes for wonderful
feedback that can help fuel business.
