Jacqueline Hart, Hart 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.”

Kathy Nilles, Co-owner Missouri Valley 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, a vitally different experience for us women in such a male dominated arena. I look forward to more experiences with this wonderful group of women!
