Recess – A Networking Place for Women.

by Dana Boyle on January 10, 2013

logo_96 A FREE* networking place for women.

Monthly meeting.  Monthly outing.

If you’re a woman entrepreneur looking to build relationships,

make friends, have fun and create a referral network,

contact Dana to apply for a spot.

Who:  Dana and a group of ladies who want to be part of the group.

What:  A group that helps us all connect with more women entrepreneurs on more than a superficial level, have more fun, build our businesses, and share ideas and referrals with each other.

When:  One lunch hour per month and one event/outing time per month.

Where:  At Dana’s office, and at outing locations TBD as they are scheduled.

Why:  Because I’m tired of people having to pay to be part of a networking group that only refers to the 20 people who belong to it, and I’m tired of standing up around a table and giving an “elevator speech” and handing out business cards instead of building real relationships and getting to know real people, and because when we have more fun, we get really know each other and are better able to actually help one another in many more ways than just sending mismatched referrals.

How:  A monthly meeting where we will socialize, introduce each other to our businesses and ourselves, update each other about our business details and offerings, and where one of us will present per month to showcase something we’re proud of or can share with the group to benefit everyone.

And, a monthly outing so that we can have some fun, let our hair down, and socialize without feeling “on” and pressured to market ourselves and pitch our businesses.

Bonus:  Dana will offer business building and coaching content at every meeting in addition to the monthly presenter.

 

*Participants are responsible for their own outing expense, if any.

Starts February 25th at Noon.

1119 – 60th Street

Kenosha, WI 53140

Too bad I don’t live in the area ;-) Looks like a great initiative – good luck & lots of fun with it, Dana!

Thanks, Mia! I’d love to do this in the virtual world, too, but I’ll have to brainstorm how it would work. It’d have to be people who take referrals for online business that can be done through e-commerce or over the phone.

Yes, that’s a whole different context. But thanks for the inspiration, it got me thinking that I’d like to meet up with some people from my own area of business on a regular basis too. So I’ll let my thoughts go over that.

Yes, exactly. I’d like to connect locally and in person a bit more this year. You’re welcome! Glad it resonates with you as well.

Dana,
Thank you for sharing this. This is great! I wish I lived in your area too. I live in the DC area.

Thank you for visiting, Miriama, and I wish you were nearby too! I’ve had several requests to make this online, and I will probably do that if it garners enough interest. Just not sure about the “outing” part, then. :)
