  3. Once the calendar opens, on the bottom right, click the button for "Google Calendar".
  4. This will add this calendar and all supporting info to your calendar page if you use Google Calendar.  
  5. You can then also sync Google Calendar with Outlook, smart phones and other applications.  
What's so great about this? As meeting locations or topics change- your calendar is automatically updated as we receive the updated details. We also provide a web link to more information for your calendar. The networking calendar remains independent from your personal entries for quick viewing.

Nugget of Knowledge     



"Do one thing every day that scares you."- Eleanor Roosevelt  


Every time we hire a new person, add a new feature to the website, promote a new event, or open a new market - I am always afraid. Afraid of failure; afraid I will disappoint others; afraid of the financial implications and more. But in the long run I need to remember that I did my due diligence, made an informed decision and remember I can adjust course as needed. My advise to you- feel the fear and do it anyway. Use the fear to motivate yourself. - Amy
