Summary of #Wgbiz Chat with Jennifer Stauss Windrum (@jenniferwindrum)

As usual, our Women Grow Business Chat was packed with a community of wonderful people, from those who helped promote it and watched from the sidelines, to those who actively participated.

And we were happy to welcome a wonderful guest expert, Jennifer Stauss Windrum  (@jenniferwindrum), who talked about her journey from lung cancer patient activist to social entrepreneur, educated us about the reality of lung cancer, introduced us to NoMo and invited us to become a part of the Sock Monkeys Against Cancer (SMAC) campagn.

At the end of our chat, regular Women Grow Business community member and  supporter Diane Court (@dc2fla) won our contest by being the first to tweet out the link to the WTF Lung Cancer Facebook community. My company Leveraged Promotion sponsored the prizes, which were a $25 Amazon gift certificate, and a $25 donation to Sock Monkeys Against Cancer . Diane graciously donated her prize money to SMAC as well.

So if you see her online, give her the Twitter equivalent of a hug for being so kind and gracious.

For a full summary of the chat, you can view the #WGBIZ chat transcript online. However, likely due to the problems with Twitter that I mentioned, her tweets didn’t make it into the transcript, and some of the other community members who used the hashtag aren’t represented either. I added the main questions and answers at the end of this post.

You can also download the chronological transcript [pdf], where you’ll find other Women Grow Business community members.

One of the wonderful perks of using social media tools to gather is that it allows those of us who participate to find each other online. Reach out to someone else in the community and expand your network! You never know where it will lead. Maybe you’ll meet in person at a Women Grow Business event.

Join us at next month’s chat, on Monday, May 14, 2012, at 12 pm Eastern/New York time, when we’ll be featuring community member Shannon Mouton.
