President's Message

September, 2015

Hello to all the amazing business women in the Fredericton area! Welcome to our WBN!

I am Maureen Schmidt, the President of Women and Business Network for 2015-2016. It is a great honour to have been chosen for this position. I have participated in this network for 10 years and have watched it grow and educate women in finances, networking, how to find funding, employee issues, etc. The list goes on and on but the best part for me has been the valuable connections and friendships I have made.

I have leaned on entrepreneurs for advice and a helping hand many times. I have learned from educators that we have brought to our meetings, motivational speakers within our own network as well as outside, and from the expertise and experience of our own WBN members.

Although I still have a long way to go, I have learned to step out of my comfort zone and be open to new ideas and sometimes doing difficult tasks to make my business better. The network has helped and encouraged me do that. This has made me a better leader and person in my own business.

Our executive committee would like to share this passion with you. We welcome you to join our WBN and be part of a group of women who have the same goals….to aspire to something greater than we have today! We welcome everyone from a sole owner of a business to one with many employees or a woman who wants to grow in the company she works for. We are here to inspire, educate and network.

I look forward to meeting you in our relaxed and fun meetings.


Maureen Schmidt
