[M usic] Announcer: You’re watching
Nevada Business Chronicles. Take a journey with us to see
the innovative businesses that put Nevada on the business
map. Connecting you with the
businesses, events, and organizations that bring
innovation and prosperity to the Nevada area. Please welcome your host,
Mitch Berney. –Today, I’m here to introduce
you to the new managing director for the E-Women
network, Reno chapter, Alexanne Stone. Thanks for coming. –Thank you, Mitch. Really appreciate this
opportunity. –E-Women network, long
history in the community. For those that are unfamiliar
with the network, what is it here to do and who should be a
member? –E-Women network is such an
exciting organization, Mitch. We are about helping one
million women each achieve $1 million worth of annual
revenue. That’s the first mission. That’s the mission of our
founder, Sandra Yancy. And here, in Reno, Tahoe,
Carson City, Truckee, we’re about lifting women
entrepreneurs. Lifting women as they climb,
bringing them into their own success and their own
empowered business goals and dreams. –As you know, I’m very fond
of the E-Women network, loving known as an E-Male. And this organization is
everything what you said it is. It’s really a platform for
business networking, but it’s more than that. You witness relationship
building within a community of people and I’ve watched
businesses and individuals blossom as a result of being a
member of this network. –It’s really true. I had a conversation with a
woman who’s been in since 2008 and she is a top sales person
in her organization and she said that she has never ever
made a cold sales call. That she’s built her entire
business just by the relationships that she’s built
through E-Women network. –Not a surprise. Great group. If somebody hasn’t attended,
they can actually come as a guest as well. –They can come as a guest. Our accelerated networking
events are dinners held at the Hidden Valley Country Club
every third Wednesday of the month. And basically, they can go and
sign up online at eWomenNetwork.com and come as
a guest or they can call me personally and I am delighted
to have a conversation with them, answer any questions
that they have and tell them all about how easily they can
come to an accelerated networking event. –The big news is Sandra
Yancy, the founder of E-Women network annually tours
throughout the country, throughout the United States,
and she’s coming really close to Reno, Sacramento, so we
want people to know about this event, those that are already
in E-Women and those who are interested in becoming a new
member. –You’re right, Mitch, Sandra
is coming to Sacramento on April 26th for the Rise
Women’s Summit. It starts at 11 in the morning
and goes ’til 3:00 in the afternoon and if you have
never seen Sandra Yancy speak or been with her during her
presentations, I can guarantee you, you are gonna leave with
something really, really valuable, a takeaway that’s
very, very valuable, and you’ll leave completely
inspired about who you are and your dreams and your goals in
your business. –E-Women network is
completely different from other networks or networking
groups. So, let’s dive into some of
the things that separate it from the pack. –I think what differentiates
E-Women network from other networking groups is what you
get for the membership. Not only is it an accelerating
networking event dinner where you have the opportunity to
talk about your business and what your challenges are, what
you need as a business owner, with other women who can lift
you and give you great advice, you also have podcasts
available. Sandra does a once a month
webinar called Sip, Tip, and Talk, where any member can
come online and get coaching from her as she talks about
what we all wanna accomplish in our businesses. She gives great advice, great
tips. It’s also what Sandra likes to
call it a one and done. You pay a membership to be
part of E-Women but you pay it only once. After that, you’re paying a
little bit of money on a monthly basis to have your
profile up and available across the nation. We offer strategic business
introductions, which are masterminds that we give twice
a month, and as a member, or even as a non-member, you can
come as a guest to a mastermind, where you have the
opportunity to talk about what your business is doing, where
your biggest challenge is, and all of the people in the room
can help you with solutions and next steps of actions to
take in your business, and all of that is included in being
part of E-women network. –Let’s not forget one of my
favorite parts about the accelerated networking events
are the incredible speakers that you bring in from around
the country. –In addition to the speakers
that we have once a month that come from all over the nation,
when you’re a member of E-Women Network, you can
actually become a pro speaker, and when you’re a pro speaker,
your name is out there, available across the nation. People search in our
pro-speaker network to look for speakers not only for
E-Women Network, but for events all across the nation. –Sign me up. Oh, that’s right, I’m already
signed up. But I know there are other
people right now going, I wanna get signed up or I want
a little bit more information, how can they get ahold of you? –You can go to
eWomenNetwork.com, look for the Reno chapter, and my
contact information is there. Or, you can actually call me
at 775-391-2231 or email me at [email protected]
eWomenNetwork.com and I’m delighted to answer
any questions that you have. –For those that don’t know
you as well as I’ve been fortunate enough to know you
for many years, what a great addition to the E-Women
Network, thank you so much for joining us. –Thank you so much Mitch,
this is such a great opportunity and I really
appreciate it. And I really appreciate the
honor of being able to serve women in our community this
way. Announcer: For more

Chronicles. –Very exciting. Today I’m with Sharron Angle,
Joye Kincade, we’re in front of the old sports authority
building for a reason, your next expo, Nevada Women’s
Expo, coming up April 6th, April 7th, so excited, tell me
about it. –That’s right, Mitch, we’re
really excited to bring some new life to this section of
Fire Creek Crossing shopping center, we’re right next to
Sam’s Club, Starbucks is right over there, there are a lot of
shops that people can come and shop at while they’re here at
the expo. We have a ton of parking,
which has always been a problem at our past events and
any other events you go to in town has a parking problem. So, we have eliminated that
problem altogether. There is over 40,000 square
feet of room inside for our vendors and our shoppers so
you won’t be crammed on top of each other, but it’s very nice
inside with carpeting and with tile walkways. We have dressing rooms for the
clothing vendors who are gonna come and join us, so that
people can come in and try on the clothes there and not have
to do it in a little pop up tent like they had to at some
of our other events. There’s really nice bathrooms
in there, we have tons of room for food trucks, we want food
trucks to come and be able to sell out here in the parking
lot and so that people will see the event as they’re
driving by and our banners are gonna be on the front of the
building, so they’ll know there is definitely something
going on here. –Sharron, the Nevada Women’s
Expo’s got some history in our community. Tell me a little bit about why
you started this, who should come to this, and what vendors
you’re looking for as well. –Thank you for asking those
questions, Mitch. Of course the history is we’ve
been around for 15 years as Nevada Women’s Expo. We were at the convention
center first, which is just right over there, which makes
this location even easier for our past customers to find. We’re right here in Fire Creek
Crossing, which we think is a great place not only for
customers but for our vendors. We have a great load in, load
out dock. So, it’s just easy in, easy
out for our exhibitors. And that’s one of the reasons
why we’re having it here. –This year, the theme is
celebrating women, and as always, it’s gonna be a
shopping extravaganza, but we just wanted to celebrate what
it means to be a woman, and you know, to be independent or
you know, just enjoy the finer things in life, the frilly
things of being a girl. So, we encourage vendors who
cater to women, but we also encourage vendors who sell
products that men might be able to pick up for their
significant other. So, we encourage men to come
in and shop, too. –That’s right, we say we
appreciate women in business, but we also appreciate
businesses that appreciate women. So, it’s all about
appreciating women. –One thing the community can
always count on at the Nevada Women’s Expo is the steals and
deals that they can get at the Nevada Women’s Expo. There are always deep
discounts and things that you cannot get any other time
except for shopping the Nevada Women’s Expo. –Well, that’s right, because
we’re going to have exhibitors here that work from home, that
do hand crafted, homemade, home grown things, things that
are just not available in a brick and mortar shop. And we’ll have those that are
in brick and mortar shops also joining us, so that they have
another location where they’re able to show their craft, show
their wares to the community. So you’re right, Joye, they’re
going to be planning something really exciting just for this
expo so that we can get those steals and deals. And you can also look on our
website, NevadaWomensExpo.com for those that are gonna be
participating, they’ll be advertising some of these
steals and deals, we’ll have them up on that website as
well at NevadaWomensExpo.com. –The vendors, this is what’s
really important about the Nevada Women’s Expo that
separates it from any other event out there is the
diversity, but the fact that you don’t overpopulate
anyone’s segment for vendors. So, tell me how that works. –You’re right, Mitch, we
don’t allow more than just a few vendors from each category
because we don’t wanna dilute the market and confuse the
customer, but we do offer exclusivity, you know, a
sponsorship price if people would like to be the only one
in their category. So, you know, we just really
try to make it so that it’s, you know, people can do a
little comparison shopping on site. You know, if you tried to do
that around town, it would take hours. We allow you to do this, one
stop shop, you know, however long you wanna be here, and
get it all done and over with and eat and have some fun,
hang out with your girlfriends, and it’s just a
really great experience for everyone, the whole family can
come, it’s a family event. –That’s right, that’s right. I was gonna say, bring your
children, bring your husband, this is something for everyone
and we try to make it a good family atmosphere so that
you’re not afraid to bring your family, your children,
your husband to this event. But I’m sure that there will
be things that even your husband will say, come on,
honey, you gotta go over here and look at this, or your
child will say, mom, mom, have you seen this? And we like that diversity
about our show. –That’s right. Diversity is something that
has always been very important for us at the Nevada Women’s
Expo. And we invite many different
types of businesses to come and join us, from financial
banking, to insurance salesmen. –We have pest control, we’ve
had mister fix it, you need a handyman, he’s here. You need a trampoline
experience, they’re here. You need a massage, they’re
here. You need a makeover, we’ve got that. So, it’s just a lot of
different services and products. Name some. –Right now, the vendors that
we have signed up are Lula Roe, ADT, Arvon, New Skin, You
Be Fixed, and several others that you know, are coming in,
as I speak, we have applications coming in the
mail every day. So, we have room for over 100
vendors, and we want to have you know, as many as possible
from each different type of service and product and even
nonprofits. We encourage them to come as
well. You know, we’d love to have
the representatives from the Down Syndrome Network, and
we’re trying to get them here, and we’re gonna have the blood
drive van. United Blood Services will be
here doing a blood drive. So, if they’re nonprofit and
they want to get out into the community and get some
volunteer exposure, this is the place to do it. –Well, speaking of exposure,
we’re expecting between 2 and 7,000 to attend our event. In the past, that’s kind of
the range that we’ve had in over 2 days, we expect to have
that. And we really expect to have
more here because of the location. We’re right here in the middle
of southwest Reno shopping. Meadow wood Mall, this mall,
Fire Creek Crossing, the convention center, you know
just the business community is surrounding us. So, that’s here, but also
because we have great access this time. We’ve got good parking for
those who wanna come and visit, but we’ve also got
great access for those who wanna exhibit with us as well. –You mentioned nonprofits and
one of the fundamental beauties of the Nevada Women’s
Expo is that you give back at the end of this event to a
nonprofit. –Yes, we do, Mitch, every
year we do give back to a nonprofit. This year, our nonprofit
beneficiary is Supportive Hope. And it is a network of data
that is being put together for those parents and caregivers
of people and children with special needs. So that they can go to our
website, a website SupportiveHope.com and find
out where they can get services and resources for
their loved one who has special needs. As many of you may know, we
have baby Ben, he was born with several defects, but he’s
16 months old and he’s doing very well, but the purpose of
Supportive Hope is to pull together resources that I had
to pull together for myself, and it was very exhausting and
taxing and time consuming. So, Supportive Hope pulls all
those things together, puts them in one place on our
website, and you can just click on a diagnosis and it
will point you in the right direction. So, you know, not only does
Nevada’s Women’s Expo celebrate women, but we give
back to the community and this is the way that we’re doing it
this year and we just really want to make people aware that
we are not for profit organization and that we do
this because we really do care about the public and the
businesses who serve the public. –Mark your calendars, April
6th, April 7th, at the Sports Authority in Fire Creek
Crossing for the next Nevada Women’s Expo. Tickets will go on sale online
on March 1st, but vendors, while there’s space, you need
to get your booths now, limited space for each
category. So, you don’t wanna miss out
on this event. you can get all that
information on NevadaWomensExpo.com. –Or they can call us directly
at 775-787-6017. –That’s Sharron Angle, Joye
Kincade, Nevada Women’s Expo. Thank you so much for joining
us. –Thank you. Announcer: For more

Chronicles. –The number of registered
voters and the even lower turnout of those is kind of
frightening. I think these are really
important events and that people should start to get
involved because you said, it’s an opportunity to go out
and really meet the candidates. Get to know and to express
your concerns and one of the things that they get with you
is that you are a representation of the people. So, to come to these and to be
able to talk to you, you’re able to really then represent
people. So, this is really important,
more people show up to these events, more people show up to
the primary on top of that because that’s more important
than I think people expect it to be in the actual outcome of
who their elected officials are. –The biggest complaint when I
walk door to door, Mitch, is that people say, I don’t even
vote anymore because I don’t think my government represents
me. The way that they get
government that represents them is they vote. If they’re not going to the
polls, especially a primary where you can vote for the
best of the best, then you’re not going to get anything but
the lesser of two evils by the time you get to the general
election, so it’s very important that you participate
from the very beginning. –Let’s continue our journey. –Let’s do that. [Music] [Music] –Hi, would you like a sample
of kettle corn? –I sure would. But more than that, I’m
Sharron Angle and I’m running for US Congress and I want you
to vote for me. –You’re running for Congress? –Yes. –Would you like to come in
and talk to me about it? –I sure would. –I’m very interested. –Great. –Sharron Angle? –Yes. –So, what do you stand for? –Well, lower taxes, less
government regulation and I would like to get the
government overreach out of our lives. That’s what I stand for. –How will it affect small
businesses? -How will it affect small
businesses? –I’m a small business. –Yes, I know, and I’m hoping
that it will really affect you very positively because of
course, if we’re following the Constitution, the Constitution
doesn’t allow the federal government to get involved in
businesses within in the state. So, if we get back to the
tenth amendment, we get back to local control. You should benefit by that. I’m hoping that the last tax
reform bill that President Trump got through will, you’ll
be able to see that on your bottom line right away. –I think I am already,
actually. Business kind of picked up. It’s usually down in the
winter because it’s too cold. People are actually coming out
and spending money. So, that’s a treat. I mean, it really is. I’m glad to see they got more
money in their pockets or they anticipate that they will
because of the anticipation they’re not afraid to spend a
little. –Well, and I think that’s
what your government is supposed to be about is
promoting that kind of activity so that the economy
is better and people really feel that good economy and
they’re spending their money with small business. –Right, they’re not gonna buy
kettle corn if they’re broke. –That’s right, it’s kind of
one of those discretionary items, isn’t it? –Yeah, yeah, yeah, just so
the kids like it and they taste it and wow, I want some,
parents say okay. So, it’s a win-win for me. –Yes. Well, tell us some of the
other things that have happened here in Virginia
City. You said, sometimes, when the
economy’s depressed, you really feel it here. –We do, we do. Sales are down, you sit and
wait for people to go by to ask them if they want a sample
and nobody’s there. So, that really affects, hits
Virginia City hard because we’re strictly tourist. People don’t come here to buy
their groceries or things that they absolutely need. They only come here for fun. So, they go to the bars, the
casino, the you know, the shops, and if they have no
money, they’re not gonna come here, you know. So, when it’s an upturn, I
think since the presidential election, it really was an
upturn. People started thinking, well,
we have a Republican in office now, maybe things will turn
around. –And I think you felt that in
your business, it has turned around. –It has, yeah, it feels good. It’s like I take time off
midweek to go skiing and snowboarding, which is my
passion, I’d rather be on a snowboard, but because I can
make enough money on the weekend, I don’t have to be
here all week in the winter. That’s a plus, too. –Yes, so, it really has
enhanced your lifestyle to have a government that is
pulling back out of the overreach. –Yeah, out of their hands,
out of my pocket. –Right, and when they pull
back, that gives you more time, more discretionary money
of your own and better business, that’s what I’m
hearing. –It does, it does. So, I want that to keep up, so
I wanna make sure whoever we have in Congress, and I’ve
heard of you, I know your name, Sharron Angle, it’s
really nice to meet you. –Thank you. –My name is Brack. –Nice to meet you too. –And I’m glad to hear you’re
running. –Thank you. Well, I need your vote. And of course, the card tells
a little bit about me. I’ve been in the legislature
and one of the legislatures that really stood for lower
taxes, government regulation. –Yeah, the regulations can
kill a business. –It can. Talk to me a little bit about
some of those regulations that you know, maybe even from the
federal level that affect you. –Well, it hasn’t affected me
too much because I’m a small business, but I hear from some
of the other people in town that the cost of business
licenses and they have to fill out this one and form A, form
B, form C, you know, why? Why do we have to have that
many forms? Because most of the money
we’re paying for the business license is going to pay the
salaries of the people who are asking us to fill the papers
out. That makes no sense. –And when we talk about
healthcare, now, I don’t know, if you have employees, I see
that you have some help here. –Oh, he likes to help me. –If you have employees,
healthcare can be a real challenge, if you’re trying
to –Oh, I can’t afford to hire
anybody. I just I can’t. I have somebody that helps
part-time. My son had a business and he
had to shut it down because of Obamacare. –Well, that’s kind of where I
was going. You’ll see on that card that I
fought here in the state against Obamacare in our
state, I wanted to get that repealed because I know it’s
very difficult for a small business or any business to
survive under that kind of regulation, taxation, and
government overreach and all of those things apply to
Obamacare, you know, actually Supreme Court said it was a
tax and so, when we can repeal that, I think that we’re doing
everyone a service, and I think that at the federal
level right now, we have 51 votes in the senate, we have
the majority in the house, the people have said, that’s
right, the people said, we want you to get this done, and
Congress replied, well, give us the house. So, we did. And then, they said, well,
that’s not quite enough, give us the Senate. So, we did, and they said,
well, that’s not quite enough, give us the presidency, so we
did. And now, I’m hearing them say,
well, that’s not quite enough, we need 60 votes. I think it’s time out, we’ve
got 51, let’s get the job done. –51 is all we need. –That’s right. Nuclear option, let’s get the
job done, let’s repeal Obamacare. –Let’s do it. Can you help? –I absolutely want to do
that, yes. –I want you in there, I want
you in there to help get rid of it, it just doesn’t make
any sense. –That’s right, it doesn’t. And you know, along with that,
we need some laws that actually give us some freedom,
you know, it’s not just enough to repeal Obamacare, but we
need to give a law that allows us as citizens to go any place
we need to go to get healthcare insurance, just
like we go outside to get our car insurance, we need to be
able to go outside the state and look at your options,
right? And also, we need the freedom
to buy what we need. So, we need the government to
take the mandates off of healthcare. If you’re a young man, you
don’t need maternal coverage. –And I’m not pro-abortion, so
why would I pay for somebody else’s? –That’s right. So, what you need is just a
basic policy and then, you can add what you need to it. I have seen that you are
really homeopathic here, you’re a dietician and you’re
really into that, as I looked at the things here in your
shop. So, what you want is really
alternatives to what’s out there, sometimes, you like to
just look at what are my choices? –Yeah, what are my choices? Don’t tell me you have to buy
this and you have to pay for everybody else’s this and that
that you’ll never use, that makes no sense. I don’t want a prostate exam. –Don’t need it, don’t need
it. –So I don’t wanna pay for it. –That’s right. And so, I think there are
things that our government can do to give us freedom. So, it’s not really a
replacing, it’s just taking those regulations, those
mandates off, those laws that are actually keeping us from
having the freedom that we want. –And need. I need you. –Oh, thank you. –You’re gonna be in Congress. –Thank you. –I need help with things like
that, so. –Thank you, well, we’ll just
have to tell others. Please, talk to your friends
about that, you know, every vote counts. Rolly. –Yes. –I want you to vote for
Sharron Angle. –I’m going to. –Okay, thank you both, it’s
been great meeting you, good talking with you. –Thank you very much. –Thanks for coming by the
shop. –Sure. –And good luck. –And thanks for the sample. I can’t wait to try it. [Music] [Music] Announcer: For more
