Breakfast meeting – October 1, 2014 – Round Table event.

We changed the game a bit for this breakfast meeting. We were a small group of 13 and we did a round table whereas everyone had the opportunity to speak about their businesses for about 4-5 minutes. They could elaborate more in detail about what was new, or success they were having. Everyone was able to talk about their main strengths, WHO their target market is, and HOW we can help them to grow their businesses. It was great having 2 new businesses join us, and fun to see the connections being made around the table. We all left smiling, and feeling food this particular morning.    10345812_10152609627467517_7718455048431933986_n 10356704_10152609627622517_8787951124639486237_n 1800478_10152609627307517_1363230496172692662_n

Breakfast meeting – September 3, 2014 – Guest Speaker: Katie Griffin of KGVisions

What a super overview of what Katie can offer to help each of our businesses to be more successful when trying to get a message across to our prospects. Katie’s presentations captivated her audience fully when she clearly demonstrated how to understand our sales funnels by attracting, engaging, nurturing, selling, and delivering to our target markets.

She shared a quote with us yesterday by Sir Richard Branson ““Don’t think what’s the cheapest way to do it or what’s the fastest way to do it…think what’s the most amazing way to do it.”..then she proceeded to single out some businesses and offered up helpful hints and golden nuggets on “amazing ways THEY could do it”.

Katie, you’re an awesome addition to our networking group. Welcome, and we’re looking forward to hearing more from you.

Breakfast event – June 3, 2014 – Desmond Harwood

Desmond Harwood


Desmond’s presentation was
nothing short of being one of the most educational workshops on understanding
the great length of work, timing and detail that goes into getting that perfect
shot! We all concluded that we didn’t know anything about photography after
Desmond shared tricks and techniques to obtaining the best results. I’m looking
forward to having Desmond work with my own family, now being absolutely certain
that his work will be nothing short of spectacular.
