We believe that when relationships are created, business naturally follows. Women do business with those they know, like, and trust. Our gatherings help women establish those important bonds.

The Heart Link Network® is pleased to launch a female networking chapter in Grand Prairie. The Heart Link Network®, which launched in March of 2008, already has over 200 locations in the U.S., Canada and Australia that serve thousands of women small business professionals each month.

Grand Prairie women's networking Chapter Leader, Sandra Kelsey, is an Independent Marketing Distributor with SendOutCards, a greeting card and gift company that focuses on acting on promptings to "send out" gratitude. Sandra is dedicated to helping female business professionals connect, create meaningful relationships, grow and succeed.

Each month, Sandra holds dinner gatherings for women. There is no upfront membership fee to impede women small business professionals. Women mingle over an informal lunch or dinner as they share their hearts, products, and services with one another. There is no guest speaker as the attendees get all of the attention as they each showcase their business for 3 minutes.

"I created a networking model on the female endocrine system," The Heart Link Network® founder Dawn L. Billings said. "My background is in psychology, personality and neurophysiology. I love learning how our neurotransmitters and hormones affect our attitudes and actions. I wanted to create a networking environment that could help make women feel stronger and more capable and certainly more connected."

Where many networking meetings are about numbers, The Heart Link Network® is about creating intimate, quality, meaningful relationships. The meetings have no more than 30 women, and prefer 18 to 23 women at each meeting.

Described as the "heart" of this organization by the founder Dawn Billings, are the President, Laura Wells, the creative director Yan Hughes, and the marketing and social media director Sherry Roden. “We would be nothing without our wonderful leaders who are served so well by this great leadership team,” says Billings.

The Heart Link Network® was selected as a 2011 winner of the Women Entrepreneur Business Award of Excellence in the “Best Women Networking” category. “We will continue to do all we can to live up to our excellent reputation,” states Laura Wells, The Heart Link Network® president.

“The Heart Link Network® is so much more than business women networking with other business women. We have an Honoree program where each month we invite and publicly honor women professionals who are traditionally excluded from networking like female military, fire fighters, Police officers, Nurses, Teachers and of course, the wonderful women professionals called “Moms”. We feed them, honor them, publicly recognize them for their incredible contributions within our communities. No other women’s networking organization does anything like this,” says founder, Dawn Billings.

“The diverse mix of success-oriented women small business professionals linking their talents, insights, contacts and encouragement is a sight to behold,” insists Dawn Billings with enthusiasm. “The mission of The Heart Link Women’s Network® is to support, encourage and challenge other women to strive for continued growth and strength in every facet of our professional and personal lives through creating meaningful relationships within their community and online. It is our commitment to be an organization that offers connections, resource and inspiration with uncompromising integrity."
