Holly Bea-Weaver, Word Weaver & Co.
When my husband and I first moved to Boulder from Northern Colorado, we
didnâ€™t know anyone who lived here. Having been an advertising freelance
copywriter for more than 20 years, I enjoyed a thriving business with clients
nationwide. A friend of a friend invited me to attend a meeting of Business
Womenâ€™s Connection and I accepted, thinking it might be a good way to
meet some women in the area.
Iâ€™d never belonged to a networking group. All of my business came from
referrals, and even though I write websites, blogs, broadcast scripts, press
releases and more for a living, I never got around to building a website to
promote my services. I never saw the need to belong to such a group, so
the concept was a bit foreign to me.
At the first meeting, I enjoyed hearing everyoneâ€™s 30-second elevator pitch.
And when it was my turn, I realized I needed to brush up on my own 30-
second business description! I enjoyed hearing the speaker of the day, which
is always a BWC member who shares information about her business and a
Q & A after the presentation. After 18 months as a member, Iâ€™ve learned a
LOT about other businesses and the amazing women who run them. Weâ€™ve
shared business concerns, exchange ideas, celebrate successes and even
recently mourned the loss of a member who succumbed to ovarian cancer.
We enjoy monthly happy hours. Iâ€™ve utilized the services of several members
and referred friends and colleagues to their businesses. Iâ€™ve had the honor of
helping several members with their website content or blogs. Yes,
sometimes attending weekly lunch meeting can be a little challenging.
However, I have never regretted attending a single meeting. Rather, itâ€™s
something I truly look forward to every week.
Business Womenâ€™s Connection has given me the opportunity to connect with
other business women in ways that go beyond business. My membership has
enriched both my personal and professional life. Itâ€™s an interesting group of
individuals that CONNECT. Thanks, Karelle, (Best Mac Solutions) for inviting
me to attend a meeting!
