Thanks so much for all of the professionals that turned out for January’s Business Mixer last night. We had a great time at this informal gathering! The Hyatt Place staff was beyond helpful and friendly! Thanks also go out to Splash Seafood restaurant for sending a tray of hors d’oeuvres to the mixer! We are looking forward to next month when we will meet back at the Des Moines Social Club. We already have speakers lined up for February and March. We are also working on the “Social Media Love Affair” – a fair for providers of social media services to meet business owners and professionals interested in their services and learning more about how to use social media for their businesses. Thanks to everyone for turning out and for supporting the Business Mixer and the Des Moines Social Club, Laura Gaulke and Aaron Lander
