“I am extremely honored to be a part of the upcoming GC4W Expo. My passion for working mothers and women in business runs deep because I have first hand knowledge of the many gifts they bring to the table as mothers and business women. Women are more than mothers, wives, sisters and friends. They are more than females. There is so much more to women than what others can see beyond their gender roles. Thank you GC4W for honoring working moms and showcasing their strengths in the area of business. Women by nature are nurturers and have this Innate ability to nurture people, places or things especially in an infantile state. They are in the business of nurturing and that is one of the many characteristic that makes them successful at mothering and business. They harness their ability to give what is needed to bring life and vitality to businesses and their families.” — Carla Stephens, Star of Bravo TV‘s Mother Funders
