First Meeting Notes, 11.17.2008

Our first Mom4Profit meeting was a success! Thank you to everyone who attended. The following are notes from the meeting including information about next month's meeting.

1. Natalie welcomed the group and explained how Mom4Profit began, the inspiration and vision.
2. Everyone took turns giving their 30 sec. Elevator Speech/"who I am, the service I offer, what makes my business/service unique"
3. Qualifications and guidelines were discussed (follow original welcome email).
4. The group shared what makes Mom4Profit unique, including supporting balance of family and career, babysitting opportunity during meetings, and schedule flexibility.
5. Group discussed and said it should be the main source of communication and information sharing outside of direct emails (vs. Facebook). Although Facebook will still be available and monitored by Natalie for those interested.
7. Business Cards were given to each member. A suggestion was made to carry a Mom4Profit personalized business card holder to be available for referrals.
8. Different forms of marketing were discussed including links to everyone's websites through blog, links to relevant websites on own website.
9. For every meeting, members must bring at least one client referral for another group member as well as marketing ideas, resources, etc. to share with the group. Members will take turns each month going into depth about their services/product and leading the group following a set format.
10. Opportunity to invite speakers, people of interest to meetings.
11. Future meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at 11:30am.
12. Next meeting location will be determined and led by Natalie and Riv to set the format for future meetings. A separate email will be sent confirming location and agenda.
