Our Inspiration

The inspiration to start the Ultimate Woman Network (UWN) came from the Founder, Tamika Joseph-Smith. Her annual women-focused event, The Pink Event, was the catalyst that sparked an idea which became what is now the Ultimate Woman Network . After producing the event for 5 years, she realized that the women-owned businesses who showcased and promoted their products and services needed additional help. Many of them did not have websites, understand marketing, or were simply struggling to grow their businesses. They enjoyed being a part of the “Pink Event Community” and many of them expressed wishing that this type of networking and connecting happened more than once a year. At that point, Tamika started to think of creating a conference just for them, women in business but decided to launch an actual Network/Organization that could support women in business all year round and so…

Here we are!
