Pre Valentine Day Meetup and Networking

You're invited for pre-valentines day networking and fun. Bring a valentines day card you make or buy with your business card in it. Also include a letter inviting the recipient to do business with you, and state what you do. Include a coupon or small denomination gift card, an invitation for coffee with you where you pick up the tab, or a small gift item. No white elephant gifts, please. Cards will be selected and opened one at a time, and revealed to the attendees. You'll be memorable and everyone will have agreat time. Numbers will be handed out at the door when you arrive and you select a card in the order of your arrival. We're meeting at The Juice Company, just off the freeway on 42nd Street in The Shops At Roosevelt. Plenty of free parking in the rear parking lot. If you're stumped for a gift certificate, The Juice Company is offering $5.00 gift certificates for $4.00 which you can purchase when you arrive, or any time between now and the time of the event. Just tell the person serving you that you want the special Iowa Entrepreneurs Gift Certificate.

    We had a great time; getting to know each other.

    Everybody was very interested in supporting small business in Des Moines.

    Sylvia was an excellent host and we all wish her great success in this new venture.

    The meetup was very insightful. Next time, there should be more people. I think the group should convey a message for more than business owners, but, make a conscious effort to attract individuals who might be looking to own their own business in the greater Des Moines area.

    We had a great group, met some interesting people. Almost everyone arrived having pre-prepared by bringing valentines and small gifts to exchange. The valentine exchange was a lot of fun. There were a couple of people who decided to drop in without RSVPs, but thanks to Darron Kitterman from Pet Butler, who brought custom made treats to give away, everyone received a valentines present. Thanks Darron, you were a big hit!
