ADVICE FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO START THEIR OWN BUSINESS: Network, network and then network a little more. There are so many great people in Macon and in my experience, they are always willing to pass along a good word about you or recommend your services. – Bobbi Wooten, Account Executive
WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT RIGHT NOW? Opportunities in our community. I love a community that allows so many people to be engaged in it. You can find your place or passion in social or civic opportunities, where you comfortably fit in and have the ability to contribute to the greater good. By stepping out of our comfort zone and trying something new, we often experience the sharing of knowledge with others, making new connections, finding inspiration, uncovering unknown resources and finding support for the things we love. – Erika Harris, Fulfillment Services Manager
ADVICE FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO START THEIR OWN BUSINESS: Know your market, be passionate about your business, and be willing to make sacrifices. – Erika Harris, Fulfillment Services Manager
HOW DO YOU DEFINE SUCCESS? Success to me is achieving your goals and then setting your next set of goals. That and trying to be the best person you can be. – Donna Mullins, Corporate Secretary-Treasurer; Customer Service-Estimating Manager
YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED THAT: I am a 19-year breast cancer survivor. I had had one date with the man I am married to now. We met in July, I was diagnosed in July, and we married in November of the same year. I was receiving chemo treatments and I knew then if he wanted to marry me through all that, he was a keeper. Sorry ladies, I am not turning him loose. – Donna Mullins, Corporate Secretary-Treasurer; Customer Service-Estimating Manager
YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED THAT: Panaprint has been in business for 45 years. The owners are very active in the business. Several employees, including me, have worked at Panaprint for more than 20 years. – Renee O’Neal, Accounting Manager
THE MOST GRATIFYING PART OF MY JOB: My work being acknowledged by upper management, especially after completing a difficult task. – Renee O’Neal, Accounting Manager
