“Sarena has created a fabulous power-group of women with We2. It’s important to note that the power does not lie strictly within the entrepreneurial success of these amazing women. It lies within the hearts & commitment, care & concern of the group and perhaps most of all, Sarena’s own care & concern for each & every one of her members. 7AM sounds early to make it to a breakfast meeting but I look forward to each & every one of them. We2 is about so much more than the referrals from which you will benefit. If you are a woman with a business head & a helping heart, We2 is the place for you.”
