My First Networking Night Out

Back in February, I wrote about attending my first ever blog related event in Kansas City.  It was such a success and I had so much fun that I left with all these ideas about bringing the fun to Lawrence in a  special and unique way.  I had already launched my side project, LFK Lady Boss Project with the idea of getting lady bosses, of all kinds, together to network and truly enjoy time together.  But I left with a renewed sense of what I wanted to do.

A week and a half ago, I hosted my first LFK Lady Boss Project Networking Night Out.

It was a two hour networking gathering hosted downtown that had over 50 lady bosses of all kinds in attendance.  I had one of the sweetest Lawrence business owners offer up her boutique, KB & Co, with not much to go off of except my dreams.  A local wedding and event planner, Fashioned Events, stepped up to help me with the details.  And finally, a photographer, Trina Baker Photography, volunteered to fill the position of photographing the entire night.  Without these three the night would not have been near as successful.

Then I had some people volunteer to donate some sweets (McLain's Market, April's Sweet Treats, and BellaRoca Cakes) and over 25 other lady bosses donated amazing giveaways.  Trina set up a photo booth.  There was shopping.  There was cookies, cake pops and macaroons.  And there was so many amazing ladies gathered together under one roof.

It has been a few days since I showed people what I hoped to do here in Lawrence.  I have had great feedback and I have already embarked on planning the next Networking Night Out.  Going to ride this way of success and keep it going.  More than anything I want to do what I am so passionate about.  I want to give back.  Lawrence, Kansas is a one of a kind community where everyone comes together to lift each other up and do what we can for each other.  I will never stop being thankful that our life brought us here.
