The first annual Top Women In Business luncheon and seminar, presented by Palm Springs Life was held at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa. Over a 100 attended to hear key note speaker, Valery Neuman talk about her life adventure in shaping a second career in the Coachella Valley real estate arena where she has closed over 1 billion dollars of real estate sales.
Valery introduced the four award winners, Lisa Houston, Business Leader – Betty Wolf, Corporate Business Leader and the tie winners in the Entrepreneur category, Kim Waltrip and Dr. Nicole Ortiz. Each of the winners spoke about how they have reached their goals and the obstacles they encountered. Kim was unable to attend due to a conflict however her award was accepted by Jenelle Fontes. The common thread in all of the stories is that they could not have achieved their success without the support of their friends, family and staff.
