What's the BUZZ all about?!
Well, that has to be Renate Weiler! I'm sure you will all agree that this wonderful lady is truly amazing. I know we all left the meeting today taking with us some very useful information about how to effectively network ourselves and our business. We have a new respect for the power of networking.

WORKSHOP - Renate has graciously offered to come and visit us again this time for a 3 hour workshop. You know how informative Renate's 1/2 hour talk was today, imagine what we can learn in 3 hours! The cost for this workshop would be roughly $79.00 plus tax and we are planning to hold it at the end of October - location to be determined. Please let me know if you or anyone you know would be interested so we can decide whether or not to go ahead with the plans.
