Kara Horat, Founder Connect For Success San Diego
I consider myself to be a self-motivated, positive person with excellent people skills and a rock-solid work ethic. I am also a serious business-minded professional, who like many other women out there, wear many hats. I am an adviser, educator, mentor, entrepreneur, mother, wife, sister and friend. My east-coast roots serve me well in my career as I have a straight-forward, no-nonsense approach to business and life.
I have been "networking" in San Diego county for 20 years and during that time, experienced first-hand, the disconnect between meeting and really "connecting" in business. I happen to have a unstoppable entrepreneurial energy and decided that if I couldn't find something that was not the same old, same old networking, that I would create it and so, Connect For Success was born.
We stand alone in the community as a hybrid of a networking group, a mastermind concept and a women's business league. We offer masterminds, workshops, mixers, special events of all kinds and we have a very local 'give-back" component.
Humbly, we are an award-winning concept (NAWBO 2017), I credit our members for creating our unique sense of community. The mastermind is where that begins for women entrepreneurs and solopreneurs who want to stretch and grow in an environment that's collaborative and compassionate. I'm thrilled to say that Connect For Success is an extension of the way I live in business and life.
