Omaha Empowerment Breakfast Announces Speaker for October Monthly Meeting

The Omaha Empowerment Breakfast (, an organized way for small business owners and operators to network with each other and connect with larger businesses and agencies in the community, meets on the first Friday of every month at 7 a.m. at Beacon Hills in Aksarben Village. Cost is only $20 ahead of time to attend and eat ($25 for walk-ins). For the next breakfast on October 1, Amie Konwinski has been announced as the special guest speaker.

Amie is the founder and CEO of Smart Gen Society Inc. Her life journey led her from a tumultuous childhood and teenage displacement to joining the U.S. Navy at just 17-years-old. Serving as a data processor for five years on active duty, Amie was stationed in Pearl Harbor and on the U.S.S. Shenandoah (AD-44), docked out of Norfolk, VA.

After an honorable discharge from active duty, Amie joined the reserves to complete another nine years of service and became a Company Commander and highly decorated Chief Petty Officer (ITC) by the age of 29. In the civilian world, Amie began her Computer Engineering career at Sterling Software (now Northrop Grumman), where she met her husband, Roger, and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha to earn her bachelor’s degree in communications.

Attendees at the Omaha Empowerment Breakfast in October are in for a treat with Amie’s story, in addition to the great opportunity to make new connections with each other.
