What we're about

Do you want to grow your business, start a business, or simply interact with professionals looking for great people?

We are a group of business professionals who come to network, build knowledge, and grow our businesses through relationships with like-minded entrepreneurs!

- Networking designed to build new relationships and long-lasting connections

- Brief, Value-Packed Workshops
(marketing, social media, organizing for success, speaking with posture, growing referrals, vision boarding, etc.)

- Roundtable discussions

- Fun Social Events

- And More!

Tired of the typical bar social meet and greet? Our networking events are laser focused on bringing value to every attendee through appropriate venues, icebreakers and activities, open networking time, education and guest speakers, giving and receiving referrals, open discussion around best practices, and sometimes just providing a way to unwind after a long day or week.

If you are a realtor, home-based business owner, mortgage officer, insurance agent, network marketer, attorney, hair dresser, craftsman, artist, entrepreneur, or any other professional looking to increase the success of your business, come and see what we're about!

“Networking is not about collecting contacts…it’s about planting relations”
