What is your most recent WIN? How are you slaying it in your career or business?

My most recent win is INVIZA's partnership with kathy ireland® Worldwide's (kiWW) Small Business Network (kiSBN). Kathy Ireland started kiWW in 1993, it is now a $2.5B global company and is ranked as the 25th leading brand in the world. Kathy and the kiWW team started kiSBN in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. INVIZA was first selected by the Kathy and then vetted by the kiWW team. Our Company was the third of fourth company (now about seven total) to become part of this new altruistic endeavor. Kathy is giving back to the world; she is genuinely a very nice person. We met her online with her team after we signed the 3-year contract in June 2020 for a toasting ceremony. That was truly a great day and the partnership provides brand credibility to INVIZA at such an early stage of the company. We are very excited to be a kiSBN partner and have Kathy Ireland on the INVIZA management team as Chief Global Brand Strategist.
