Community, Collaboration, and Connection are Key Factors to Success: KNOW CEO & Founder Sarah Benken

Sarah Benken

How are you spending your time on the internet? In an article on Disrupt Magazine, it’s mentioned about having access to a plethora of information. Still, the question is, how are you using the internet, and what are you reading?

When you’re finished flipping through countless stories that all sound the same, maybe it’s time to get serious about moving your business forward finally. Sarah Benken of KNOW is more than serious—she’s making a difference one woman at a time.

With a successful business, this 12-year CEO never quite felt at home in the traditional boardroom or networking event. She longed for connections and collaborations with like-minded women. Women who wanted more out of life. High achievers. Dynamic women. When she couldn’t find the community she was looking for, she created it herself.

Today, her mission is to lift other women in business and help them move the needle on their businesses. With knowledge, lessons, tips, and success of how she scaled her business, she’s sharing information that she hopes will help other women thrive. In the course of building the community, it grew stronger and stronger and spun off into not only an online experience but an offline experience in cities throughout the country.

Collaboration and connection are two critical factors. Combine them with the community, and you’ve got something special. They work with three aspects, showing women what is possible by highlighting success stories of businesswomen via their KNOW Book, participating in the KNOW Collaboration, which is where women come together to pay it forward and help one another, and with KNOW Société, an online educational growth membership that reaches across borders and allows people everywhere to join.

One other aspect of Sarah Benken’s mission is in giving back. She teaches pregnant teens and other women business information to help them grow and learn. That’s not all, as of Fall 2020, KNOW will have created a non-profit organization [KNOW Cares] that will empower and help women globally with things like leadership, mentorship opportunities, education, and even emergency relief funds.

This strong, smart woman is making an impact on society. She’s won awards and been mentioned in print magazines over 40 times, along with being selected as Mom of the Week via Charlotte Moms and the Charlotte Observer.

If you’re a dynamic, high-achieving woman looking for a place to belong, KNOW may be precisely the place for you. They’d love to have you join them. Sarah is a big proponent of paying things forward, making a difference, and lifting up women so they can enjoy success and be celebrated for their hard work. It’s all about collaboration, connection, and community.

They welcome all people to their groups regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, color, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender expression, socioeconomic status, or physical appearance. She says, KNOW is united by its differences.

Her goal is to amplify the voices of women and to empower them to do more, go further, and make a difference in their businesses and the world.

Are you lacking a group to connect with over business? If you feel like you’re overworked and overstressed, while not getting where you want to be, KNOW may be precisely what you’ve been looking for.

Sarah knows what she speaks of. She’s been a proud CEO and businesswoman for over 12 years and did it without outside funding. Success doesn’t have to be a lonely journey. Not anymore. She created a community that’s ready to help you go further. If you’re stretched thin and left spinning your wheels, it may be time to seek out The KNOW Women.
