Her brilliance has led to some remarkable innovations for the company, bringing over $160MM worth of profit.  Many would think she has a bright, shiny path straight to the top.  Well, it hasn’t been easy, and the last two years challenged her leadership skills.  At this year’s Women In Family Business event you will learn EXACTLY what she did (and still does!) to Choose Joy, Stop Drama and Drive Results, even when faced with challenges.  Her journey has not been an easy one, and she is excited to share her experiences and methods for other women to learn from and implement.  Come learn how she chooses joy for herself, what joy for your entire team could mean, PLUS how to be an integral catalyst to help people grow where they are planted.

Co-Owner, Missouri Valley Petroleum

I have never before felt such an immediate connection to a group of women, and it seemed we came together so effortlessly. The content of our discussions had such a life-changing effect on me.  The relaxation was also a great way for all of us to recharge our batteries…that is priceless!

Rieman C. Royston

“WIFB is my favorite conference. It is great to connect with other women. I like that we talk about real world challenges and come up with ideas to solve the challenge.  It reenergizes me. I have also kept in contact with a lot of the women who are wonderful resources when questions arise.”

Gwen Gallagher Stuckey
Former Owner Offen Petroleum

Thanks again Betsi, for the wonderful experience at WIP.  It was such a wonderful departure from other petroleum events (non-Meridian conferences), as well as being a new, vitally different experience for us women in such a male dominated arena. I look forward to more experiences with this wonderful group of women!
