Women's Other Passion on Valentine's Day
Women Like Me Launches Directory Membership Drive
February 12, 2007
TORONTO (February 12, 2007) - The membership drive for the 10th
Edition of Women Like Me, The Women's Business and Networking
Directory launches on Valentine's Day February 14th, publisher
Karen Fraser announced today.
Why was Valentines Day chosen for the start of the membership drive?
Karen Fraser explains, "For women entrepreneurs their business
is a great passion in their life but letting the world know of their
great business affair is too expensive for many. By purchasing a
listing in the upcoming 10th Anniversary Directory, women entrepreneurs
can promote the business they love, both locally and nationally,
for an entire year. They can give a Valentine's gift to their business
and share the love."
Running a business is much like a great romance. In the beginning
no one understands what you see in it. You give it all you have;
it is on your mind even when you are not working. It often makes
your heart pound and you lose sleep over it. Unlike some relationships,
this passionate affair can't be kept a secret if it is to succeed.
But shouting from the roof tops is not effective promotion for a
The Women Like Me Directory connects your business directly
with potential clients. The Directory is an "on the desk"
network used daily by thousands of women for their work and lifestyle
needs. The member's message will be at the customer's fingertips
when buying decisions are being made.
When the membership drive is completed and the 10th Edition is
ready, it will have member's listings from all parts of Canada in
over 200 career areas. Now more than ever, readers will value this
network that works on their schedule to meet their needs. The new
book will also feature articles on current work and lifestyle issues
and inspiring profiles of innovative entrepreneurs from all areas
of the country.
The exciting membership benefits include a Networking Rebate, the
opportunity to support The Margaret Fund for breast cancer prevention,
a monthly interactive newsletter (The Netletter), discounts
on new opportunity services and promotion on the Women Like Me site.
Participants will be sent a Promotion and Event Planning Guide to
help them make the most of their year in the Women Like Me Directory.
Participating in the 10th Edition of the Women Like Me Directory
is easy, effective and affordable. The listing form is on the Women
Like Me web site at www.womenlikeme.ca
and it can be submitted by mail, fax or completed online. The listing
fees for a year are less than the cost of a Valentine's Day box
of chocolates, bouquet of roses or frilly item. Participation fees
ranges from $35.00 for a Basic listing to $50.00 for a Bold listing
to $100.00 for a Best listing. The listing choices can be viewed
on a sample page on the site.
The first entrepreneur to register for the 10th edition is Sonya
Scarrow, owner of Cobalt Virtual Enterprises. Her company offers
administrative support and secretarial services virtually - over
the internet. She intends to use the Directory to promote her services
to clients with international business interests.
"The Directory represents a moment in time reflecting who
we are, what we are doing and what we need", states Karen Fraser,
"When it started Sonya's career did not exist and the internet
was the interest of a few not the emerging business opportunity
