The Heart Link Network provides the perfect opportunity to not only grow in business but also to build lasting friendships and share in each other's success.
Knoxville, TN (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
As women in Knoxville and the surrounding communities face significant changes in the world of business, they are discovering networking with other women to be one of the most valuable marketing tools for strengthening business contacts and connections.
The Heart Link Network® is happy to bring networking for women in Knoxville. Founded by Dawn Billings, entitlement and personality expert, and author of over 20 books. In 2008 Dawn was selected as one of the nation’s 80 emerging women leaders by Oprah magazine and The White House Project. In addition to her role as CEO of The Heart Link Network®, Dawn is also an executive coach and highly sought-after speaker.
Dawn explains, "I created a networking model on the female endocrine system," The Heart Link Network’s founder Dawn L Billings said. "My background is in psychology, personality and neurophysiology. I love learning how our neurotransmitters and hormones effect 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."
The Heart Link Network® Knoxville chapter leader, Karen Rhodes, is a Marketing Distributor for SendOutCards. Karen is dedicated to helping female business professionals connect, create meaningful relationships, grow and succeed. Karen states, "I love to encourage women to believe in themselves and their ability to succeed in any role they play in life. Networking with other business women allows all of us to grow together. The Heart Link Network provides the perfect opportunity to not only grow in business but also to build lasting friendships and share in each other's success."
Heart Link Network gatherings are held monthly. 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.
Where many networking meetings are about numbers, The Heart Link Network® is about creating intimate, quality, meaningful relationships so they limited each meeting to no more than 30 women and prefer the meetings to have between 15-25 women attending.
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's 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 site 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."
