My number is 733 5536. Thanks so much!

    Deborah J. Cabral, owner of The DeClutter Coach and DC Efficiency Consulting and host of the hit TV show Organization Motivation!, is the recipient of this year's Key4Women Achieve Award. She was presented the award at last week's Women Igniting the Spirit of Entrepreneurship (WISE) Symposium in Syracuse, NY. The popular symposium welcomes over 1,000 attendees and is a collaboration between the WISE Women's Business Center and the Falcone Center for Entrepreneurship at the Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University.

    The Achieve Award, launched in 2008, is an annual honor for successful women business owners who are also actively involved in their local community. In admiration of their dedication to business and community, it's Key Bank's way of celebrating the women business owners who they have the privilege of working with every day. They strive to recognize as least one woman business owner in each of KeyBank's 22 districts across  the U.S.

    Winners are selected based on entrepreneurial and community spirit; financial and management acumen and the difficulty and risk the woman business owner has endured to achieve her success.

    New Hartford-based Key Bank Relationship Manager Julie Sylvester was Deb's nominator.

    Deb shares, " It is an honor to be recognized by Key Bank with this award. With hard work and determination, I've tried my best to turn a personal tragedy into business success. The road was difficult, but with a positive attitude, determination, perseverance and a great team, anything is possible!"
