Testimonials


“One of the great joys of my life was to be chosen as one of your honorees. You are a role model to me!” – Joanne King Herring


“The presentation today was amazing. Your story truly touched my heart as I grew up with an alcoholic mother & a very busy, career minded father. I raised my two brothers from the time I was 10. In the past 5 years I have gone through a divorce, dad had colon cancer, mom went in & out of rehab & ERs, and mother-in-law died from brain tumor. I don’t see myself as a “survivor” – more like a very strong person that just deals with bad stuff. Today I realized I am a survivor & I am proud of it!! I am a great mom with an entrepreneurial spirit. Julie was laughing at me tearing up the entire hour! I have had so many doubts about leaving Neiman Marcus to start Jennifer’s Closet; however, today I knew in my heart that my business is going to work. It may shift & change vision & focus, and that’s OK. Thank you for sharing your story. I am so inspired!” – Jennifer

“Gina, each time I attend a WTS event, I am reminded of how proud I am of you. Tonight was your special night; however, with all that was going on, you unselfishly shared your time and spoke much needed words of encouragement regarding my vision. You are truly an amazing woman! You inspire me and I thank God for your unselfish spirit.” – Monica


“Women That Soar is a powerful organization for women! It’s visionary leader, Gina Grant, has created a venue that has been such a great source for me. Not only has Women That Soar allowed me many opportunities to connect with many “movers and shakers” in the Dallas area, it has emotionally supported me by rejoicing in my entrepreneurial successes and, more importantly, encouraged me in my entrepreneurial doubts! Thank you, Gina!” – Carolyn – Try Again Girlfriend
