Meet the women helping women to succeed in this challenging economy

Meet the women helping women in this challenging economyPatty Tobin joined co-organizers, Sheri Best and Lisa Ricciardi, and First Lady of New York State Michelle Paige Patterson, last week at the Women in Construction & Real Estate Networking Event held at the Haworth building in New York City. The purpose of the night: to celebrate and empower women pursuing careers in nontraditional employment fields such as construction, real estate, transportation, facilities maintenance, green and energy industries. These women are an important part of this dynamic effort to help women lead and succeed in this challenging economy.

As a woman who worked for more than a decade leading her own private contracting firm before turning to pursue her passion for jewelry design, Tobin was asked to say a few words about her experience running her own construction company in such a male-dominated industry. Tobin spent the night speaking to guests about the critical importance of creating better business opportunities for women. To help boost proceeds for the event, Tobin also donated a lovely bronze shell pearl necklace, which will go to benefit NEW: Nontraditional Employment for Women.

Tobin, who said she is a positive person by nature, keeps a stone Buddha in her store, a gift from her brother provided in time for last year's opening.

Just in time for Halloween, Reuters reporter Deborah L. Cohen published this story on small business owners who take comfort in spiritual and superstitious beliefs. Patty Tobin was interviewed for the piece and provides a rosy outlook on the subject:

“The overarching thing for me is mind over matter,” said Tobin, a former marketing consultant who began designing jewelry six years ago. “It’s the whole idea of moving energy and making a situation a little more auspicious toward whatever goal you’re trying to accomplish.”

Tobin, who said she is a positive person by nature, also keeps a stone Buddha in her store, a gift from her brother provided in time for last year’s opening.

“We had magnificent sales that night,” she said, noting that overall sales of her merchandise have done well despite the economy.

AMEX Open Forum Interview with Patty Tobin

July 3, 2010  |  News & Events

AMEX Open Forum recently interviewed jewelry designer and life-long entrepreneur, Patty Tobin, to get her insights into how small businesses can save money in the current economic climate. Drawing on her expertise as a business owner, Patty Tobin explains that making the most of your headquarters is a good place to start, but points out that constant negotiations is key to keeping costs down when times are tough.

Here is an excerpt from the July 2nd article that appeared on AMEX Open Forum’s website and

Get the most out of your headquarters.

Patty Tobin owns a fine jewelry shop in New York City, where the cost of running a business and living is not a trivial expense. Tobin makes it a point to negotiate with her landlord by freezing rent rates, providing a month out of the year lease at no charge, giving credits towards utility charges if not included in rent.

Within her shop she is mindful year-round of heat and air conditioning. “[I am] constantly checking with telephone and cable providers for better rates, too.” Better yet, cut out the landline and fax line — with Blackberrys and iPhones, and everything compatible for email, who needs them?
