Hello everyone! I am so happy to announce we’re officially, finally launching the For Love and Business Community!

After a year of preparation, humming and hawing, tweaking and let’s face it, good ol’-fashioned FEAR, I’m FINALLY getting this off the ground – so I’m throwing a party! And you’re invited to attend: it’s FREE!

Here are the details:

This is going to be a cocktail reception on Wednesday, May 2, 2018 between 6:30 and 8:30 pm. Drop in any time! The host venue is the Vaella Consulting Boardroom at 7 Main Street South, in Alexandria. That’s the spot of course where we’ve had our Glengarry Women Entrepreneurs’ Network gatherings. Complimentary wine and non-alcoholic beverages will be served, along with local cheeses and snacks. There will be prizes and surprises!

The WHY:

I created For Love And Business to support the needs of women entrepreneurs who juggle the demands of running a family and a business, often a family business. Our potential members  can be located anywhere, of course, but my soft spot is for those who are in rural areas and small towns. That’s where couple ownership is often a way of life (think of all the farms, the local retailers, the contractor and transportation businesses). And where there aren’t nearly enough resources!

That’s why I wanted to launch HERE, in my own backyard. And not in Ottawa or Toronto or anywhere else.

Now that doesn’t mean you HAVE to be in business with your spouse to attend the party. There’s a lot to be said for helping each other out, whether you are single and totally a solo-preneur, or whether yours is a true-blue family business.

Who’s All Going to Be There?

A special invitation is extended to all the women entrepreneurs of Glengarry and area. This includes members of the Glengarry Women Entrepreneurs’ Network, the Women Entrepreneurs of Cornwall & Area, the Alexandria Chamber of Commerce and the Vankleek Hill Business and Merchant Association.

It’ll be fun, inspirational, and if nothing else, tasty! Bring a friend (yes, hubbies are welcome… mine will be there!). The more the merrier!

This will be an excellent opportunity to network and meet female business owners from Alexandria, Cornwall, Lancaster, Vankleek Hill and beyond.

Join the party! It’s FREE to attend.

Hope to see you there!
