So how do you get involved with Mountain Women in Business?
We meet three times each month. The first Thursday is in the morning and the third Tuesday is in the morning and the evening. Come to the meeting(s) that suit you best. It is not required for you to attend each one, but we encourage you to come to at least one meeting per month so everyone can get to know you better and be able to refer you to other people.
Morning meetings at Conifer Community Church begin at 8:00am and end at 9:00am. And evening meetings at Blue Mountain Kitchens are from 6:00pm until 7:00pm. It’s a very good idea to come a little bit early and be ready to start promptly.
Each meeting is an opportunity to practice your introduction (frequently referred to as an Elevator Speech) and hand out business cards or literature. Members can sign up for an opportunity to make a longer presentation. Occasionally a guest speaker or a special topic is presented instead of a member presentation.
Recently we have been arranging Social Events. This is a casual time, so we can get to know each other on a more personal basis. If you have any suggestions and/or would like to coordinate a social event, please contact one of the board members directly.
Mountain Women in Business is a non-profit entity and does have nominal annual dues. The cost is $48 per year, with an initial start up fee of $40.
We encourage guests to join us a couple of times to see if this is a great networking environment for them.
Have you been looking for a place to make connections for your business and make friends? Mountain Women in Business may just be the place for you!
The most important person in your business is YOU. Only you can present your business in the way it should be presented. No matter who works for you, it is your face and your personality that will be looked at. But getting the right information to people who could buy from you or who could refer others to you can be overwhelming. It’s important to get out in public and let prospects know all about your business. That’s where networking comes in.
Networking is simply an opportunity to tell your story to other people. And networking comes in many different formats. It can be at a chamber of commerce event, at a business association meeting, at an official networking group meeting, even in the checkout line at your local grocery store. Anywhere where you can meet people face-to-face, tell your story, and learn the other person’s story is a good place to network.
Specific groups exist to help you make these connections and to practice your talking points. Some are quite pricey and have very strict guidelines for membership. Others can be more casual. Where you are attracted really depends on your personality. Frequently you will find large nationwide groups that have the criteria where only one business of a specific type is allowed in the group. This may be a prefect place for you to feel comfortable and able to display your expertise. Typically these have the title of “Leads Group”. There are also groups that allow multiple businesses of each type. In these groups you can really hone in on your specialty and focus on what makes you different from your group competition. It’s all a matter of preference.
No matter what you choose, you need to get out and let people know you exist. And there is no single perfect method to get your message across. Each establishment is different. But continuous learning and practicing can help you make a success of your passion.
