President's Message

Dear WINS members,


How exciting to see such a surge in our WINS membership. We are up to 57 members!! I believe that women need friends, confidants, business contacts. The list goes on and on. Definitely someone you can count on. With WINS, we have made those friendships important and I believe we have this with each other.

Our speaker last month, Maylan Newton, talked about being prepared for emergencies. How to have your business run without you in case of an illness, an emergency, etc. He even gave Loretta a digital copy of his operations manual that can be edited for your type of business and then hopefully shared with employees, family, etc, who may need to carry on without you for a bit. With the horrific tragedy in Las Vegas that affected so many, including wonderful people here in Simi Valley, we can see that his topic was right on point. I know we have all been sending love and prayers and desiring a need to build stronger bonds with everyone around us. So, this leads me to the next paragraph……

October is one of our favorite months because we get to celebrate with each other at the Birthday Bash!! We have lots of great fun, food, talk, scheduled so I hope to see you all on the 25th of October at 6 pm!! Remember, it is FREE!! So don’t forget to RSVP.


Best, Dana Silecchio






It isn’t fair that summer goes so fast, kids go back to school so soon, and we have the post-vacation blues. I am such a home body that I love getting home from a trip, as much as I love leaving for one. How about you? Do you get the vacation blues? Remember to share with me if that describes you at our next meeting.

Speaking about our next meeting, how awesome is it to have a radio personality visiting us.  I believe that our upcoming speaking is going to share her story, her smile and create some enthusiastic fun at our luncheon on August 23rd at Sutter’s Mill in Simi Valley. If you haven’t heard her on air, or had some of her fantastic Italian food at East Coast Pizza, it is time that you come meet her!!

We have 3 new members since our last meeting. And we have met our goal so far of growing our WINS group by 2 new members a month. Make sure you register for the next luncheon and make a point of meeting them. For a summer meeting, July was smoking hot!! Interactive, fun, positive, and busy. We had members who were still visiting with each other after 2 pm. I know that August will be great too!!


See you all there!!


Dana Silecchio









Thanks for being my friend, Dana
