Join us for a FREE online event on May 10th at 1 PM EST – Networking and Relationship Building for New Leaders! Open to members and guests. Simply RSVP above to attend.
Your professional support system is one of the most powerful assets you’ll have as a leader. The right support system, like what we provide here at Bosstrack, can help you find confidence as a new leader, build a successful team, push your agenda forward, advance in your career and stay on top of trends impacting your work.
We are so excited to have Mara Smith, Founder and CEO of Inspiro Tequila, join us to discuss why networking for new leaders and building a system of mentors, peers and advocates is so important and how to effectively build your professional network and support system. She’ll provide strategies for building a system that works for you, for approaching someone new and for nurturing your network to keep it working for you.
This is an interactive meeting and time will be given for you to ask questions and contribute.
Michelle Harris, founder of Bosstrack, will moderate the discussion.
About Mara Smith
Mara Smith is a former attorney, corporate strategist and stay-at-home mom who is the founder of Inspiro Tequila. After studying accounting in undergrad and then attending Northwestern University School of Law, Mara began her legal career at a large law firm in Chicago. She then decided to switch gears and apply her business degree as part of the corporate strategy and business development team at a Fortune 100 Company. Mara was put on emergency bedrest while pregnant with her twins and when they were born prematurely, Mara decided to leave the corporate world to focus on her family and charitable work.
She never stopped thinking about what was next. Mara always envisioned running her own company and in February of 2020 she set out on her journey to create a new tequila brand.
Mara started drinking tequila when she was looking for a clean, gluten-free spirit that fit into her active lifestyle. She searched for a tequila brand that was additive-free with a look, taste and aroma that appealed to her as the consumer. That perfect tequila did not exist, so she decided to create one. The goal was not just to create a one-of-a-kind tequila, it was also to bring another female voice to the spirits industry. Women are involved in every aspect of Inspiro Tequila’s process from creating the taste profiles to getting bottles on the shelves. As a female founder, Mara’s mission is to inspire and support other women on their entrepreneurial journeys through financial support and mentoring.
