Cathy, you have touched lives – you have touched mine. You give me the inspiration to carry on in what I want to do.
Michele Broad

As an Executive Managing Director for eWomenNetwork – Fresno, I have the opportunity to showcase many speakers/entrepreneurs throughout the year during my events.  Cathy Alessandra spoke to my chapter about the marketing tools that a 21st Century female business owner needs to embrace in order to compete in the marketplace.  What I liked most about Cathy’s presentation was the user-friendly delivery of the information and the fact that she has such valuable examples to show of how these tools have worked in her own business.  It’s always a delight to listen and learn from someone who has successfully walked the walk…no theory, just practical applications.
Sherrill Calhoun, eWomen Network, Fresno
