**Slight Change of Location: We will be in the same parking lot, but inside the International Plaza next to Yu's Mandarin, for a change of flavor as well as being able to talk as loud as we want. Please call Peggy at[masked] if you need directions.**
Networking only pays off if you CONSISTENTLY attend the same group meetings and get yourself acquainted in front of people. When people see your face repeatedly and as they know you more and more over a period of time, they will then be more willing to refer businesses to you. People make mistakes thinking they come to networking events to find their clients among these people whom he passes business cards to, but in reality networking only brings in real results after at least SIX MONTHS of continuous effort and attendance. Business mostly happens AFTER the foundation of trust is established. Therefore, we introduce this new format to help our Really Nice People form stronger, lasting business relationships more quickly and easily.
The main theme of the Extensive Strategic Networking is "To Give Before I Receive. To Share Because I Care."
Please BRING BUSINESS CARDS as it is an important part of this structure. During this new format, you will be able to speak to EVERYONE and connect in a deeper level to learn about each other's businesses.

Coach & Consultant, Patterson Consulting
During many years working for retailer Best Buy and the Geek Squad, Ayesha had the opportunity to gain valuable business knowledge. Her favorite part of that experience was sharing what she learned with others. Ayesha became a Specialty Coach, responsible for training new managers from other locations on various duties such as analyzing financial reports, implementing cost controls and supervising administrative functions. When it came time for Ayesha to end her journey at Best Buy, she knew that providing business coaching to others was the ideal way to help those who need guidance. There is no shortage of great ideas for products and services to bring to market, and Ayesha has a passion for helping entrepreneurs achieve their vision.
Ayesha specializes in assisting creative people who have a great product or service on how to release the potential of their business by earning a profit. In her experience, she has encountered many budding entrepreneurs who make their own products. A common thread she noticed was their focus on the product at the expense of the rest of the business tasks. Whether it is due to a lack of knowledge, interest or time, Ayesha enjoys working with innovative entrepreneurs to bring balance to their business.
Topic of Presentation:
Rhythm Isn't Just For Dancing
Whether you realize it or not, no matter the size of your business, it is made up of several departments. And as entrepreneurs, we are usually the head of each of those departments. This presentation shows you how to create a master calendar that keeps you and the business on track, while effectively managing everything that needs to be done on a regular basis.
