Two years ago another woman and I decided we wanted to partner with other professional women in the triangle in order to grow our businesses and to establish a professional community. We both decided to act on that idea by both inviting 5 professional women each to meet after hours to share our businesses with one another. Two years later that group of women evolved into a group we later named “She’s Connected.” We meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month from 11:30-1pm at Mia Francesca at North Hills and have grown to around 15 members! We hope to grow to 30 by the end of 2013. In 2012 19% of my overall business came from the members and visitors of She’s Connected!
