Realizing that the lives of thousands of homeless people were being wasted on the streets, Tiger Todd took it upon himself to do something about it. He retired from the electronics company he founded and discovered his true calling by motivating people toward the lives they were meant to live. Since developing an antidote for American homelessness through his volunteer work on the streets of Las Vegas in the 1990’s, Tiger has continued to work with community heroes, helping to transform over 30,000 homeless men and women into responsible, motivated, contributing members of society.

Today, whether motivating homeless people, college students, or executives, Tiger Todd has tapped into something real – the ability to produce change… ridiculously fast.

Message from our President,

Christy Echols President 2014-2015 - Close up

Dear Members, Partners & Friends,

What a privilege and honor to be your new President! I am so excited about this upcoming year, we have amazing things ahead of us and I am ready to join with each of you on this great journey.

NAWBO Southern Nevada has been built on a solid foundation, one that is leading us into our 25th year. We have stood the test and challenges that came our way and are still going strong!

My vision will begin by supporting the national vision; ensuring NAWBO Southern Nevada is THE organization that propels women business owners forward. Bringing us together in our community, to strengthen, to connect, to be the bridge for women business owners to reach the level of success they desire for their business. 

We will continue to develop programs and strategic partnerships that will grow and cultivate our members businesses and relationships throughout our community; relationships are so important to building bridges, which is the key to our future success. 

Together, we will build stronger relationships with our corporate partners, support one another both personally and professionally and will connect more than ever as a community. We can and will make an impact for the women business owners of Southern Nevada, not just today but for the next generation.

I encourage you as you read this; to think about the passions that lead you to become a business owner . . . the drive to create something that would allow you to do what you love. Now that the days have turned to months and even years, do you love what you do? Do you feel the passion and the excitement as you did on the first day? Are you making a difference in the lives of those that you meet every day? Are you impacting those who call you “boss”? I challenge you today; find the love and passion in all you do and you will find great success! I leave you with this little quote . . . “To be successful, the first thing to do is fall in love with your work.” – Sister Mary Lauretta.  

This will be an amazing year for the women of Southern Nevada, I encourage you to get connected, become involved, put IN what you expect to get OUT! Let this be a year of great success for us all.

God Bless!

Christy Echols
