It is said that people want to business with people they now, like and trust. I know that’s true for me.
But sometimes it’s hard to know who you like when you meet them at a regular networking event.
“Hi, I’m Jen, what do you do… Hi, I’m Jen, what do you do…” and we all share our 2 minute elevator speech.
I just don’t learn that way. I never have. Probably has something to do with my short attention span and my unnatural sleep cycle. Though I’m constantly working on my listening skills, my preference is to meet people through some sort of activity and be naturally drawn to people over casual conversation and experience.
So that’s what this is. It’s a social event that I have planned as a community manager for CRAVE Chicago. CRAVE is a membership for female entrepreneurs and we have multiple networking and learning opportunities. This is the first purely social event we have hosted in a long while and we are opening the event to men and women that may or may not be entrepreneurs but certainly know how to bowl like one.
The venue secured for us by my friend Monika of Connect-Inspire-Grow is amazing with all sorts of games like pool, bowling and putt-putt! It promises to be a night of laid-back fun and new friendships.
Hope to see you there~
