Every top performer needs someone in her court.

One of the biggest challenges to women entrepreneurship is a lack of role models. In NAWBO OC, we have no shortage of them. If you need an adviser, guide, counselor, confidante, guru, etc. - we can help.

Coaches are part of a six-month facilitated program available to NAWBO OC members who want to seriously jump start their growth or overcome challenges.

Please feel out the Mentor Request Form. Based on your responses, we will set you up with contact information for 2 or 3 women business owners from our pool of mentors. You take it from there!

I joined NAWBO OC struggling to find clients in a business that felt more like a boxing match. I thought the Coaching Program (formerly the Mentoring Program) would give me someone (other than myself) to be accountable to. I was paired with Patti Cain-Stanley and it was a revolution. Together, we transformed my business into something entirely new (literally, a new field) - now I have two successful businesses built on the model Patti and I developed and work feels more like dreaming.

Are you looking to give back?

We're looking for women business owners who are willing to build a longer-term relationship with an emerging or established woman entrepreneur. Successful mentor/mentee relationships are some the most rewarding - please consider becoming a mentor.
