Meet other local Small Business Owners! Come to a Small Business Meetup to network, find new customers, get advice and avoid costly mistakes. Hear how others have overcome hurdles and achieved success. All are welcome!

The small business owner who goes to a business networking event and succeeds only in passing out a number of business cards is not building momentum for word of mouth referrals. People want to help other people who are caring and generous and helpful themselves. The biggest challenge is to actually be all of those things.

Business networking events are an essential piece of any word of mouth marketing plan.Word of mouth referrals begin by having a name that people know and remember. Business networking events encourage the sort of relationship building that leads to successful word of mouth marketing. Although different organizations host different types of networking events, an effective networker is always one who listens well, seeks to help other people, and makes valuable introductions.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
