Okay so last week I went to a meet and greet hosted by Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs. What a blast! The food was great! The location was convenient (close to a MARTA station). The food was fabulous. I made a ton of new connections and of course it was a blast to meet the people that I converse with daily on Facebook. If you’re a female business owner, you need to make it your business to become a part of this group. It’s so much more than just Facebook. Here’s the link to the Facebook group – http://www.facebook.com/groups/AWEINFO/. Also if you want even more, there’s a paid membership site over on ning which is located here – http://atlantawomenentrepreneurs.ning.com/.
I must admit something. I hate creating graphics. I just do. I can write articles in my sleep (I have actually done it before). I just am not good with graphics. So I went looking for someone to create graphics for me. I went to one of my favorite Facebook groups, Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs, and asked around. Someone (sorry I don’t remember who) recommended Gadsavage to me. His work is awesome! I got a logo done and he did my business cards too. I promise to post the header once I get this work caught up. I just wanted to give Gadsavage a quick shout out for the fabulous work he did.
I’ve just found out about a great event for female small business owners. It’s designed to help you grow your business. There is a cost to attend if you are not already a paying member of the Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs group. The workshops include:
Revenue Planning, Time Management, and Branding. Tickets cost $10 if you are not a member of the Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs group and it is free if you are a paying member.

I am part of a wonderful group of women on Facebook called Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs. One of our members, Allison Babb Phillips, asked this question:
I’m curious to hear from other biz owners…. when you hesitate or forget to follow up with a prospect, what’s typically going on that’s causes this? I just taught a ClientsOnABudget.com session today on “follow up fortunes” and thought I’d ask the question. You know… the stack of biz cards we were meaning to connect with, referral we got but never contacted the person, interested prospect we should call but haven’t etc. Why’s that?? And do share your ideas for conquering persistent “follow-up failure?”
I’m a member of a lot of business related Facebook groups. That’s a good way to connect with people that are interested in what you are interested in. One of the groups I am involved in, Atlanta Women Entrepreneurs is extremely active with people asking lots of business related questions. I have to sometimes pull myself away from the group’s page or I’ll spend all day on there helping out with this or that question related to small business. One question made me want to write a blog post so I didn’t crowd the group or take over the conversation. So here’s the question that started it all (I will also link to the person that asked the question as well as the person that answered the question):
