Business Networking in the Gainesville Area

Work Your Net

Inspirational Educational Networking Events

To give people a place to network,receive motivation share experiences, while learning something new. It does not matter if you are the CEO or someone out of work looking to connect with a new opportunity through networking. In the past year we have learned new ways of networking, how to understand and sell to the different generations and how to cope with the day to day challenges we face. My goal is to help. Several years ago when I was faced with my greatest challenge someone reached out to me. So this is my way to give it all back.
