15th anniversary party celebration

15 years ago Maria West and Anita Garcia (along with a few others no longer with BCBC) had a golden idea to start an ALL WOMEN’S networking group. The group switched venues (more times than they would like to count) and the women who attended have changed. Although their remains many “mainstays” with Linda Hirsch, Linda Kahn-Ferrell and Debbie D’Aquino being members with many years of attendance.

This year at the annual Summer picnic we toasted to 15 years of BCBC and here is to 15 more!

 

Fabulous Resources for Network Groups

Looking to be part of a woman’s business leads – generation network group?! We hope that if you are and live in the Beach Cities area of Los Angeles you will consider BCBC. But, regardless we would love to share with you a few of our favorite resources.

MEETUPMeetup.com is a great resource for those looking to associate with people with like interests or to venture in to learning something new!

MASHABLE:  Mashable.com  When it comes to learning about social media and marketing news of the day many industry specialists look towards Peter Cashmore and Mashable. Not only do they report on the newest in technology but also share worldwide information about the “goings on” in the business world.

Read about women involved in networking via Mashable link

FACEBOOK:  Facebook.com  I know you are probably saying to yourself, “DUH!” – but seriously FACEBOOK  is a great way to search local / regional groups that provide resources for lead network groups.  Do your due diligence before you venture out to participating in these groups- whether virtually or IRL (in real life).  Click here for a list of groups with the search words BEACH CITES + NETWORK GROUPS.

LINKEDIN:  Linkedin.com  This is the “grand-daddy” of all business oriented networking opportunities worldwide. The only deal with Linkedin is lately it has been saturated with people who are “less than reputable”- so again, due diligence when interacting online.  Also, if you are seriously seeking employment or enhancing your business consider the premium account offered. (Added payment will be needed.)

The take-away? Read. Learn. Engage. Interact!
