It’s that time of the month again – the WeDames monthly business mixer is happening THIS Wednesday at The Pitch Pizza and Pub. If you haven’t ever attended, we highly recommend it… Both men and women are invited! We have some uh-mazing businesses stopping by to grace us with their presence, and let’s not forget that it’s happy hour until 6pm! This is why I show up a little early, to be honest.
But I digress! This fun shin-dig is great for people in business, looking to get in business, or mingle and schmooze with like-minded entrepreneurs in Springfield, MO.
For Those Starting A New Business
Starting a business is a lot like raising a baby – it takes a ton of work in the beginning and, after a while, it begins to manage itself on its own so long as you have your systems in place, have a client base and excel at sales. Keep in mind that many businesses fail within the first 5 years of their opening, so it’s imperative to hit the ground running with your idea and to stay in the forefront of your client’s and ideal audience’s mind!
And, one of the best ways to spread the word about what you do is via social networking! I was speaking to a gentleman last week about his business, and he admitted that close to half of all his clients are by word-of-mouth referrals. Even after being in business for close to 20 years, he still understands the value of social and professional networking!
*special note* Please don’t hard sell anyone your products or services at this event. By all means, talk business and if you get a sale, great! All we are saying is no one likes being backed into a corner and Celine will give you stink eye the rest of the night.

WeDames is an organization which spotlights local businesses and presents them in front of Springfield’s most influential market segment, the people of Springfield, MO.! In short, we set up fun events (such as ladies night out, debutantes and daiquiris, and madams and mimosas) whereby a local business, looking to market their products and services to women, sponsors one of these said events and enjoys building rapport with our female patrons.
Keep in mind, we don’t ONLY host events for women: every month we host a Business Mixer, a Ladies-Only Wine night and a general Schmooze event. WeDudes are invited to the Business Mixers, which are the first Wednesday of every month, and our general schmooze events! You can find deets on all of these events here and you can RSVP for them as well!
Our audience/readers are a mix of men and women – from college students to entrepreneurs, stay-at-home parents, professionals and more, ranging from 21 years old to 60 years old! Each event is fun, entertaining, and leaves everyone wanting to know when the next one is. We have a packed house each time!
If you are interested in attending one of these events, all you need to do is click here and join our Meetup group (there is no fee to join). We host other social outings in and around Springfield, MO. at local restaurants and lounges so we can meet other awesome people in our town.
If you are a business looking to host/sponsor an event or series of events, keep in mind you can do everything from sponsor a gift at an event, to sponsoring the whole event itself- it all depends on you and what you would like to achieve out of it! Feel free to fill out the contact form here and a representative will get back with you shortly.
