Grow, learn and have fun with other mission-driven solopreneurs and creative professionals

Join us for our monthly night of networking for mission-driven and creative solopreneurs. Each month, we'll start with casual mingling and then feature a guest speaker to share insights about a topic relevant to all solopreneurs, whether they run holistic healing, counseling or coaching practices, creative solopreneur ventures, or side hustles. 

This month, Mara McLoughlin, MS, CCC-SLP will offer a talk called, The Etiquette of Dating, in which she discusses the ins and outs of pursuing romantic relationships, including::

- Letting someone know you like them;

- Giving compliments;

- Asking someone on a date;

- Accepting rejection;

- Turning someone down; and

- Going on dates.
