Add Chocolate Connection Networking (CCN) to Your Event Repertoire

CCN is stylish networking for women in business that encourages the exchange of shared interests and innovative ideas with the help of chocolate and wine! Occurring every month, CCN brings together fun, successful women for a fabulous evening devoted to sharing ideas, building connections and making new friends.

How it works: By signing up to attend an event, you'll receive announcements about events. Make sure to bring lots of business cards and fliers to promote your business. There is an $8.00 charge for the event if you register prior to the event online; tickets are available at the door for $10.00. Paying online adds your name to the guest list and allows you to take advantage of lower ticket prices.

Hope to see you there!

My lucky day was when I met Suzanne Hull at a local coffee shop for one of her no-charge Office Hours sessions. I told her my social media failures and frustrations as well as what my vision was for how this could be a part of my marketing. Suzanne put together a step-by-step action plan on paper for my business. Since that day several months ago, going at a pace I could manage, Suzanne has coached me in how to use Twitter, Facebook, my Blog, LinkedIn and an E-newsletter to further my business. I have seen measureable, positive results in new customers finding my business and with how my business is positioned in my target market. I feel confident I can use the tools Suzanne has shown me to keep my Social Media presence positive and growing.
