As you are fully aware, networking is one of the most powerful business tools in the world, this will be a great opportunity to meet new people, discuss topics from finance and investing, to health and medicine, to beauty and entertainment, entrepreneurs success stories, plus so much more! This first event will be a meet and greet, a chance for us to get to know each other.
The main purpose of W2WBnetwork is to mentor to and not to sell to. The vast majority of networking groups say they network when in actuality everyone tries to sell their goods or services to you. In all frankness, networking in and of itself is a way for each individual to market themselves, which is selling their brand. However, I know that we can do this in a more constructive way by being first a mentor and nurturer to each other, then working to promote each others businesses in the most positive and productive way.
I look forward to meeting each and every one of you there, please feel free to invite other businesswomen contacts who you think would benefit from being part of such a network.
Any questions please don't hesitate to call/e-mail me.
