BRING BUSINESS CARDS!__MIX WITH OTHER BUSINESS OWNERS!
About Mixer with a Mission
About a year ago, I was asked to have a business mixer. The restaurant, Buffalo West must have thought I probably knew a lot of people because I closed down the restaurant with about 300 people from my high school reunion. So I agreed to see what could happen. Turns out, about 200 people showed up, wow was I surprised! When I realized that was possible, I agreed to do it again. Since I could draw that many people together, it only seemed right that we should benefit more than just ourselves. A business mixer is usually about meeting new people and doing business together. The following mixer was going to be in November, so it seemed fitting to me that we give back to the community by having a canned food drive for the Tarrant Area Food Bank, as well. As that idea came to me so did the phrase “MIXER WITH A MISSION.” Since that time we have had this mixer many more times, once every other month. I have been asked to have this mixer in other areas of the metroplex now and we’ll see where it goes from here. I’m grateful for the opportunity to bring people together and give food to the underprivileged in our community at the same time. Everyone is generous with their donations of cans and cash. This is a giving group of entrepreneurs in the Fort Worth area, I’m proud to be a part of these amazing business people.
