Rainbow Connections: October 2016

Summer is over and fall is upon us, which means it’s time to start building those new connections to help you grow your business over the upcoming holiday season. The Austin Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce kicks off networking this month with their monthly networking luncheon followed by Gay in Austin‘s monthly happy hour, both at Gusto’s. Austin Pride‘s First Friday Happy Hour series is taking a hiatus. We’ll post details about when they decide to start them back up. So practice that elevator speech and check to see if it’s time to order more business cards. Happy connecting!
