I joined LeTip of Boca Raton in March of 2018 and am currently their Social Media Chair which makes sense since I run a Social Media Marketing company IRL. When I left my corporate marketing job and started my business in 2017, I knew that I had to expand my network but had no idea how to get started. Using Google, I began searching for local groups and came across LeTip of Boca Raton through the jungle of dozens of local groups in my area. Even though I immediately felt connected when I visited the first time, I did my due diligence of going to check out other groups as well. Needless to say, I came right back and filled out the application to become a member.
Three years later I am happy to report that LeTip has been the best thing that has happened to my business. I met my power partner, the VP and Graphic Designer in my group Allison Duine, and feel like without her I wouldn’t be as established as I am today. LeTip made that connection happen! She was assigned to me as a new member to show me the ropes. Little did I know that not only would she do that, but she would become an integral part of my business as well.
The rest of our group is comprised of quality members. I can say with confidence that our members are involved, and active in participating in our meetings.
The 30 second commercials during the meetings keep me on my toes and every week has me thinking, what new cool thing can I share with my group? The great thing from doing this is when I have new client meetings, I also have these facts just oozing out of me to share. It’s definitely a win-win!
Though during my 2nd year with LeTip COVID hit, instead of slowing things down things sped up, for my business and for our chapter! We had more guests and new members join in a few months via our Zoom meetings than we had the year prior! That is what I call determination and teamwork, by leadership and group members. The creation of the Lunch Bunch meetings and Virtual Happy Hours during this time also allowed us not only to connect with local members, now I was getting referrals from members in other states, even across the country! Plus, the friendships that were made along the way were more valuable than anything, especially during this tumultuous time with so many unknowns.
I just love my LeTip Boca Raton Group and look forward to many more years as a member of this amazing, funny, professional and caring “family”.
