What we're about

The goal for our no-fee professional networking group is to connect small business owners and entrepreneurs to generate leads and referrals for our businesses. We want to share ideas about business growth and learn best practices.

We meet the first and third Thursdays of each month at 8:30 AM in East Cobb. Our meetings are in a relaxed no pressure environment and give our attendees the opportunity to tell us about their business at each meeting. In addition we draw for (2) three minute presenters for the following meeting. At most meetings we have a featured speaker who provides information on how to improve networking, social media and other skills to function better in today's business environment.

Come and meet other local business professionals to connect and share referrals and leads.

There is no fee to join. We are an open group and do not limit members or categories.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Bob
