Connect with creative, savvy, successful entrepreneurs at this month's CRAVE Business Chat. We know that being an entrepreneur means you've said "YES" to something you're passionate about and in spite of everything (and often of everyone...the nay-sayers that is) we trusted what was calling us, we listened to the creative tapping on our shoulders and we responded to the whisper of "what if?" And finally...we took the leap. 

"Welcome. You're in good company and we're so happy you're here!" 


This month at our CRAVE Business Chat, we are talking about "Networking + Business between Competition and Collaborators". 

Ladies…you’ve heard me say this before and I’m going to say it again. “It’s no longer business as usual" and there’s been a huge shift in the conversation around networking, collaborating and competition. The new approach is moving from ‘competition to co-marketing and collaborating relationships’ all in an effort to reach the same audience. That’s because it’s finally sinking in that there is MORE THAN ENOUGH BUSINESS for EVERYONE! Bottom line is this...it’s not about getting ‘all the business…it’s about getting ‘the right business!' Yes? 


Ask yourself, "How do I view the 'so called' competition?" "Do I feel competitive or collaborative?" Whatever your answer, if you'd like to tap into what it takes to Network Successfully, Connect with Your Ideal Clients, Build Meaningful Collaborative Creative Relationships, then let's chat! 


With more women becoming entrepreneurs, joining organizations and attending networking events, the question certainly arises…”what if we collaborate?” and “can we collaborate if we’re competitors?If these questions have ever been on your mind, then this event is for you. We have entered a new phase (thank god) where celebrating each other out weights beating each other. Soif you believe as we do...that ‘we get when we give’, then please join us this month and be part of the conversation.


But before diving into a new collaborative business relationship, come hear our panel of experts as they share their own personal experiences.  Here are some of the questions our panel will be answering…

  • Can you collaborate with a competitor?
  • Is there a potential downside you should watch for when collaborating?
  • Can you find success at events that are full of your competition?
  • How do ‘you’ stand out?
  • What scares us about networking? 
  • How do you successfully network? 
  • Do you feel more competitive or collaborative amongst your fellow entrepreneurs? 
  • Are you confident when it comes to your negotiation skills? 
  • Do you feel a glass ceiling exists within your industry? 
  • How can we move beyond traditional ideas of modesty for business success?

 **there will be a great hand out and take home for all who attend**

I hope to see you there and know this...YOU MATTER! I'm sending you every good wish and my most genuine thanks!
