I had a fabulous networking opportunity today...actually, the entire day thus far has been filled with networking and opportunity. Here's how things have gone (keep in mind it's not even 3pm so there are more opportunities yet to come) -
9am - stopped at a fabulous chiropractic office to chat with some very nice ladies and enjoy the scenery and ambiance (picture a pond, a water fall, and a real live mallard swimming in the pond). If you are looking for a great chiropractor in the Manitowoc area - check out Advanced Family Chiropractic http://manitowochealth.com/ - during that visit I was able to chat with the talented Olivia Brey from OH photography (talk about talent folks): http://www.facebook.com/ohphotos/info Olivia is as inspirational as she is talented and it's such an honor to consider her a mentor and friend.
9:30am - met with Steve and Tom from SCORE counseling chapter #508 http://www.greenbayscore.org/ if you need help with your business or just want to chat with professionals about a dream that you may have for a business - this is the group to get in touch with. Talk about being authentic and providing feedback. What a great experience. They even recommended some books for me to read (being the book worm I am).
10:30am - chatted with Tess and Ron of Fallier Automotive about their adventures and future plans. I can tell you that I've bought several vehicles from them, had work done, and rented a U-Haul - very nice people to deal with: http://www.fallierautomotive.com/
11:15am - Women in Management Inc. meeting (learn more about us at: http://www.wimiwi.org/chapter/manitowoc) and met some great people and heard a presentation about Networking with Purpose and Passion by Joyce Nelson of Joyce Ventures: http://www.joyceventures.com/ and also had a fabulous lunch at the Holiday Inn in Manitowoc.
