I went to a networking event today. Another one where you come, you sit, you listen, you give your cards to the people on either side of you. The topic was somewhat interesting but nothing I couldn't live without. I did however meet two interesting people (the two sitting on either side of me) and I was truly grateful that I had the chance to talk to them, to start to build a relationship with them. One thing I know, most everyone that refers work or other opportunities are people I have relationships with. Relationships lead to trust.
Typical networking events aren't designed to help us build relationships. Which is why I am launching the Success Circles.
This is the first of a series of monthly, and what I call, POWER networking events in Santa Fe, NM. Just 1 hour long but packed with amazing support and education to help you on your path to both personal and professional success. Every month I will be choosing a woman business owner to host our 1 hour event. At the event, we will connect with one another through sharing and celebrating our personal accomplishments. No boring one minute pitches...just honest sharing of what we are proud of. Then, we'll meet our host and learn about her business. Next, we move into some "power networking"...15 minutes to work the room and set up phone chats, coffees and lunches, with the other passionate and driven women in our community. These are dates where we can further develop our relationships with one another. Finally, we end with a circle mentor sharing her quick, applicable tips for success. Then, you're on your way.
The first Women Entrepreneurs Success Circle will be on Wednesday, February 25th at 10am at Agni Ayurveda. Our host is Emily Glaser and she is generously sharing her gorgeous space with us!
Come 5 minutes early to get situated and we'll start promptly at 10am. RSVP here and share this email or this RSVP link (http://eepurl.com/bd1755) with the other fabulous women in your life. I look forward to seeing you at this groundbreaking event!
