Setting up 2018 the right way to for women, especially women in business, was the idea of the Ultimate Woman Network Launch on December 30, 2017. The mission is to embrace success in life and business through finding a new type of support system that allows all to shine and achieve their goals through ongoing collaboration in business, social, and personal issues creating a new safe space for women and their supporters.

I could not be happier and more excited about this network, which is so needed. For too long competition and comparisons that are hindering growth have been accepted among women, among women entrepreneurs and among women’s organizations.

Setting up 2018 the right way to for women, especially women in business, was the idea of the Ultimate Woman Network Launch on December 30, 2017. The mission is to embrace success in life and business through finding a new type of support system that allows all to shine and achieve their goals through ongoing collaboration in business, social, and personal issues creating a new safe space for women and their supporters.

On December 30, 2018 Tamika Josephs-Smith, CEO and Founder of Diamond Event Services with the highly successful annual PINK Event going into its 8th year in 2018, launched the new Ultimate Woman Network. The idea of creating a network that supports women in all phases of business, including the need for social connections that go beyond business had been a long dream. This launch marks the beginning of a new era in the geographical area of Maryland, D.C., and Virginia and beyond emphasizing that collaboration and support can lead to more success than competition and comparison, something she and her long-time collaborator Dr. Natalie Forest, CEO & Founder of Natalie Forest International have exemplified for years.

“I could not be happier and more excited about this network, which is so needed. For too long competition and comparisons that are hindering growth have been accepted among women, among women entrepreneurs and among women’s organizations. It is high time to know and embrace the Power of Women and embrace our unique contributions, which get expanded when we come together in collaboration,” Dr. Forest said when asked why she volunteered to speak at this launch.

The intent to support up-and-coming entrepreneurs, as well as the expansion of existing business woman was obvious as this very personable launch event at the BWI Marriott in Linthicum, MD. In spite of the unexpected snow women honored themselves and participated enthusiastically. Dr. Forest had invited her friend and photographer Donnell Wallace, form DW Celebrity Photography, to the event given his unique ability to capture transformative moments like this and his well-known support of women’s success. Overall the excitement in the room and the sharing of experience from Tamika Josephs-Smith, Dr. Natalie Forest, and Mali Phonpadith – as well as their mutual support of each other - were evidence for how ready women in business are for a change that is finally here: Collaborative Individualism.
