Shareen Shareen Berkowitz

“Real conversations lead to creative connections, collaboration, promotion, enlightenment, understanding, engagement and learning” - Shareen Berkowitz.

Shareen has been with Women’s Power Networking since 2010. She is all about collaboration over competition and enjoys authentic conversations with real people. She believes that authentic people are brave, courageous and vulnerable, which creates opportunities for collaborations. This leads to a world of endless possibilities. Shareen is passionate about learning more about you, your culture, interests, hobbies, career and how to collaborate and/or add value. She spends a lot of time thinking about how to grow and nurture an authentic community and create positive, mutually rewarding, beneficial conversations. In fact, her side gig is focused on just that; creating a community of authentic people who are not afraid to share their stories, skills and resources to help others. Shareen works for the state of NC and the community college system as a business counselor during the week. She knows about entrepreneurship, starting a business, target marketing and business planning. If she could give potential business owners only one piece of advice, it would be this, “set yourself apart from your competition by collaborating with them in some way. Your strength is your unique selling proposition (USP). USP is all about collaboration, connection, community and authenticity. Ask her how you can collaborate with her!
