Networks form a foundation of opportunity that business owners can use to build upon. Ranging in variety from leads groups and educational groups to like-minded and support groups, the power of networks stems from the synergy that is created from the creation of group master minds. These master minds work to catapult any one individual’s participation in the group to higher levels and thus results in increased efficiency in their life and / or business. Tampa is home to many impactful and dynamic networking groups and our community benefits because of the synergies that exist not only within the groups themselves, but also the synergies that exist between the networks. This synergy is on display each and every Wednesday for example on That Business Show where we host and work with the Working Women of Tampa Bay. This group of professional women is composed of over 800 members and hosts many events across the Tampa Bay region and works in conjunction with the Radio Show, Tampa Bay Business Owners and many other organizations and networking groups across Tampa Bay. Get involved with them today at www.workingwomenoftampabay.com!
