Thank you to everyone that took the time to respond to my initial email. I appreciate your feedback and words of encouragement in taking on this group. By taking in all the great suggestions I have come up with a plan for our next meetup. We will schedule two Meetups to accommodate the different areas of Orlando. One will be closer to downtown and one will be on the east side, potentially Casselberry. Everyone is welcome to attend both. I will be locking into a meeting room, preferably in a restaurant type setting. A large display table will be available to showcase marketing material. We will have a casual meet and greet (happy hour) and then progress to a meeting atmosphere. Everyone will have a couple of minutes to stand up and introduce themselves and announce what they do and any particular contacts they might be looking for. This should accomplish an opportunity to meet new friends, market your business or profession, and utilize your network to fulfill any service needs/interests. The dates will be Thursday August 20th in the downtown area and Thursday August 27th at 7pm on the east side of Orlando. I will be locking into the location in the next few days, please email me with any location suggestions.
Meet other local Small Business Owners! Come to this Meetup to network, find new customers, and share your successes or challenges with Women who are facing similar issues with their business. Inspire and even Mentor! Meet-up topics, may include: Marketing, Expanding/Recruiting, Practical Accounting, Management and more. Members will help pick the topics. All Women are Welcome from Casselberry and nearby Cities. Career Women and Business Owners, are encouraged to make this group their own. At-home-Business Owners, are welcome too! Keep in mind that we are not trying to sell to the other women in the group. Rather we are learning from each other while building collaberative partnerships. People work with those they know, like and trust. Use this group to grow new relationships. It is more important to find out who people know, and possibly arrange an introduction for you.
