    B.I.G. Networking for women

    Hundreds of women nationwide are already participating in B.I.G., an inspiring business organization that stands for Believe, Inspire, and Grow, designed to “empower women in business.”  Now, Greenwich will launch its own B.I.G. chapter on Tuesday, January 29 at noon at Kona Grill, 230 Tresser Boulevard in Stamford. All area women are invited to attend this exciting kick off event. Lunch is optional and will be available for $14 per person (drink, tax, and gratuity included).

    This membership-based organization utilizes face-to-face community meetings, presentations by business experts, an interactive website, and monthly teleconferences to provide intelligent women a positive and educational support network to help move their business ideas forward. Many of these women have been out of the workforce for several years or they are looking to make a change in their current career. Others are already business owners or employees themselves who can benefit from new ideas and share their knowledge with others.

    Thanks to Orna Fomin and Elaine Lanzillotti, women throughout the Stamford / Greenwich area will have the opportunity to join and participate in B.I.G. The group hopes to attract women from neighboring towns in CT and NY as well. As the Stamford / Greenwich Area B.I.G. Leader, Fomin will host monthly meetings with area women to discuss relevant business ideas, feature speakers, share insights, and brainstorm ways to overcome their obstacles.

    “I have participated in other B.I.G. pods and am excited to share this great opportunity with the women of the Stamford/Greenwich area since there is a real need for this type of group here,” said Fomin, who is an Executive District Manager with Arbonne International. “As a mom and a new entrepreneur who is building her business in parallel to her corporate position, I understand first hand the struggles and triumphs women face as they launch their business along side their existing working and family commitments.  B.I.G. provides the resources and infrastructure to allow us to overcome our business challenges and achieve success.” Lanzillotti, is the Assistant Leader of the group and has recently launched bloc one, providing fashion events that offer favorite designer brands right to your door.   “Having left the corporate world to stay home with my children, I have felt that spark inside to start my own business.  Now is the time, and I believe with the help of B.I.G, I can grow as a new business owner.  I am looking forward to the opportunities that lie ahead and working with the many talented women in our area.”

    Founded in September 2009 in Bernardsville, NJ, B.I.G. has been rapidly expanding to communities throughout the USA. The B.I.G. Stamford / Greenwich Area Pod meetings will be held on the last Tuesday of every month at Kona Grill, 230 Tresser Boulevard at noon in the restaurant’s private room. Lunch will always be optional at $14 per person. Women are encouraged to visit the B.I.G. website at (www.believeinspiregrow.com) to learn more about how to take the next step in their business lives or contact Orna Fomin at orna@myarbonne.com. RSVPs for the Stamford / Greenwich Area Pod launch event are appreciated by contacting Fomin at orna@myarbonne.com or 203-594-6762 or Elaine at elaine@blocone.com or 203-716-1392.
