A message from Lorraine Sanborn, our founding President:

Welcome to freshconnections, inc. a non-profit organization founded in January of 2010 by professional women for professional women, with the goal of unleashing the power hidden within through the power of building networks, connections and relationships.

Our goal:
  • provide a nurturing, non-threatening atmosphere
  • where women can comfortably promote their business
  • using friendly, relaxed networking opportunities

Another important goal is to help each member gain the confidence to meet their biggest challenge – whatever it may be.

Together, we will learn techniques to present ourselves to potential clients, market our products or services, and connect with women in industries outside of our comfort zone to obtain direct and indirect referrals.

While there are no guarantees, through the knowledge and strengths gained from active involvement with other members of freshconnections, your business relationships will grow and prosper with the added benefit of gaining new friendships which have formed along the way.

As we develop and grow as a group, freshconnections is making a commitment to help members develop and sharpen a full complement of networking tools to enable your business to successfully prosper and grow to its full potential!!
