Remember when your mother taught you the Golden Rule? “Treat others as you would like to be treated.” Well, Mom was wrong. The real key to being truly successful in business and in life is to treat people the way they want to be treated. In this interactive and fun talk you will:

  • Understand your personal behavior style with it’s attendant strengths and weaknesses
  • Gain the knowledge to build well rounded teams that support your weaknesses and allow everyone to play to their personal strengths
  • Create strategies to relate to people on their terms, rapidly building rapport and deepening your relationships with your current AND potential clients
  • Identify the preferred behavior style of others quickly and easily allowing you to give them exactly the type of information they need to decide to work with you.

Through Kickass Biz Coaching, Julie Foucht empowers women to build Passion Driven, Money Making, Totally Awesome Kickass Businesses. She believes that to be successful in business, and in life, requires more than just a great plan. It requires you to Master a Happy Mindset while taking Daily, Inspired Action toward your goals.

SVBWN Needs Your Help!

Part of the SVBWN mission is to support various organizations by way of a "Call to Action" each quarter. If you have an organization that is near and dear to your heart, we want to hear about it.  With each "Call to Action," SVBWN asks its members to participate with a donation. 

Please contact SVBWN Vice President Carol deLeon at with the name of the organization, contact person, and why the organization is important to you. SVBWN values your input and every little bit helps.  Collectively, SVBWN's members can truly make a difference!

Get involved! Discover how SVBWN can use your time & talents in 2015 by contacting 2015 SVBWN President Ida Lopez Chan at or any of our other fabulous board members.
