Growing Your Business Referrals

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Carrie, Becca & Kim

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of attending a presentation for Professional Working Women called “Grow Your Business: Referral Request Seminar”.  The event was hosted by Carrie Peele and featured guest speaker, Mary Cantando, Founder, of The Woman’s Advantage.  Carrie is the newly appointed Chair for the Triangle Chapter of The Woman’s Advantage and hosted her first event at the PNC Boardroom in Raleigh.  So many women business owners & working professionals struggle waiting for referrals to happen by “word of mouth”.  This seminar taught us how to stop waiting for them to happen and how to instead, MAKE the them happen!   Carrie and Mary also presented the opportunity to learn more about the Women’s Advantage Program and how ladies can sign-up to get involved.  I really enjoyed the class and was happy to have my friend & fellow ShopLocalRaleigh member, Kim Davis of The Paystub People along with me.   Kim and I worked as partners during the class and had a chance to share several times when Mary called on volunteers.   I can’t wait to take what I learned from this class and aplly it to my job as Director of Marketing at Smith & Smith, CPA.   WA-logo-PDF

Everyone Say…HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

Dressed in MGC in Apex!

Do you ever just want to stand up and yell HAPPY FRIDAY!?!?!?!  I am feeling that for sure today!  Been a long week, but a great week and looking forward to the weekend for sure!  So here we go with some HAPPY FRIDAY news! 

 WBON of Cary kicked off our 2012-2013 Year this week on Wednesday.  We had a nice crowed of over 50 ladies and our speaker was sooooo dynamic and engaging!  I want to tell you all about him, but I really want to encourage you to go HEAR HIM SPEAK!  His program is great and if I tell you about it, I’ll ruin the surprise for you!  His name is Kevin Snyder and he talked to our group of ladies about PASSION, PERSISTANCE and making that GOAL happen!  Loved it, laughed so much and took a lot away with me to work on.

 Thanks Kevin!  And thanks to our awesome Programming Co-Chairs, Alice Osborn and Karen Albright, for getting Kevin as a speaker!!  I wore an amazing dress to WBON…and thankful for how soft and comfy it was, because I do a LOT of moving/lifting and carrying on those days to get stuff set-up.  I got my dress from My Girlfriend’s Closet in downtown Apex!  Plus my awesome shoes and jewelry! 

Been there to shop??  You’ll be happy you did! 

 

Super Skippers & Pep Rally

Our oldest son started kindergarten this week and we attended the Pep Rally on Tuesday night.  It was really fun, the Athens Drive Cheerleaders were there and also the Super Skippers of Cary YMCA…who just happen to be the 2012 National Champions!!! Who knew!?!?!?  They were awesome and did some killer jumps/stunts during the pep rally.  I can barely jump a rope 10 times in a row and these kids were killing it with flips, handstands, multi-jumpers with multi-ropers, etc.  No wonder they are national champs!  The pep rally talked about the Fuel Up to 60 program, a neat nationwide movement on behalf of the NFL that is helping fight obesity and encouraging kids/families to make smart/healthy decisions. We are looking forward to participating.

 

Railhawks at the Hib, Happy Friday!

Before the pep rally we had dinner at Hibernian Restaurant & Irish Pub here in Cary.  My favorite thing about the Hib (as many like to call it) is the atmosphere!  It is so cool and really different inside.  Plus they have a nice outdoor covered patio area.  Our kids had never been there before and they really liked it.  The boys shared the mini-corndogs and thought they were great!  Blake and I shared the chips & cheese and then also a big hamburger, perfect for splitting!   The Carolina Railhawks soccer players were at the Hib that night (one of the reasons we went to eat) so our boys got to say hello to them, talk for a bit about soccer and got some autographs.  They were thrilled!  Thanks Hib of Cary for a fun family dinner night!

Hope you have a great weekend and take a minute to say HAPPY FRIDAY along with me!
