I found the Small Business Community Network (SBCN) through the Small Business Centre, (two separate organizations), and boy was I glad I did! Being a new comer to Waterloo Region I knew no one. The folks at my first meeting were so friendly and inviting that I quickly decided I had to join and haven't looked back. Having the opportunity to meet new people (and some familiar ones too) every month is a must for a small business owner. After all, how is anyone going to know if they want to buy your service or product unless they meet you and experience how much passion you have. All of the other benefits are "icing on the cake". The multiple strategies and mediums SBCN has for you to interact and market yourself is unlike any other organization I have ever been a part of. I have, and will continue to make great connections & gain referrals from SBCN Members.
