  • Erin Krex, First Class Care, shared more details about her domestic placement agency.
  • Each member took a few minutes to share their target market and how the network can help them improve their business.
  • The Economic Stimulus Plan was reviewed and members were able to share their offers.
  • Members were reminded to sign up for a committee.  Members were encouraged to take proactive roles and ownership in the "business" of Mom4Profit.
  • Riv, Natalie & Rachel introduced an idea of having a spring Health & Wellness event for women.  This event would give interested members 20-30 minute slots to talk about their businesses and give value/information to the guests.  All members were encouraged to participate to introduce Mom4Profit to the public in a fun, motivational and informative 3-hr event.  Everyone is asked to help with organizing event including finding a location, working on invites, "goody bags", refreshments, etc.
