Carlita Belgrove, 42, who owns Belgrove Appliances Inc. in Westchester, whose specialty is restoring old and antique stoves, is a member of Over 40 Females’ Westchester chapter. “I love this particular group,” Belgrove said. “They’re all very supportive. They’ve all been very positive.”
What Over 40 Females is building, Belgrove said, “is a network of successful businesswomen all over the country.” She noted that a member of a networking group from New York could stop at chapter meetings anywhere they are held, meaning that Belgrove could cultivate business relationships with women from any number of other states.
“It’s ingenious,” she said.
An Over 40 Females membership is $5.95 per month. Chapter leaders work on commission. For more, check out over40females.com.
