Oh, What a Night...







I loved entrepreneur night! All 19 participants shopped, painted, ate and mingled w/ one another. Tips and ideas from regional business owners were soaked up on this blustery rainy night as the hot coffee was flowing. The former owner of a gift shop & tea room, the owner of 2 floral & home design shops, the husband & wife team of a popular occasional sale & Etsy store and the owner of a barn sale on her property were all in top form and eager to share how they got started, the best things about what they do, some of the pitfalls of being your own boss and plans for the future. Questions and comments from participants helped the evening to flow right along and go past our ending time of 8pm. I think this night was just the tip of the "iceberg" w/ this topic. We are looking forward to the next installment of Entreprenuer Night! A big thank you to our talented panel and wonderful participants!!

And now some pictures of the shop...
