The lights stay low but the stars stay bright for the hour-long yoga class that follows. Class is gentle and beginner-friendly – afterall, yoga in the dark can be challenging!

Businesses Bonding Over Beers

Waterloo, IL – Stubborn German Brewing Company. Do you own a brick and mortar business in Monroe County? Do you want to meet other business owners? Come to Businesses Bonding Over Beers!

Chris & I (Tammy) wanted a platform where we can get to know fellow Monroe County business owners in a laid back and social setting! There is no meeting fee, no membership requirements, and no formal presentation.

I feel that every time we visit a local business and chat with the owner, we leave INSPIRED to do good in our business and community. It’s nice to know there are other people out there we can relate to, talk “business”, brainstorm, figure out collaborations, learn tricks, talk about problems, etc. It truly does recharge our batteries after talking with people who are just as passionate about their business as we are about our brewery.

It doesn’t matter whether we’re talking to a coffee shop owner, automotive shop owner, boutique owner, or accountant, we can ALL learn from each other. The more we get to know each other, the better we can promote local business in our community. This will help keep our local businesses strong, develop partnerships, and help keep our community strong! Sometimes, the best relationships are developed in a relaxed atmosphere (with a beer in hand).

Tech Talk

Belleville, IL – St. Clair County Event Center. Join us for this FREE event. Does your phone feel like a rubik’s cube? Social media make you want to be anti-social? Are you a tech pro looking for more savvy tricks? We have something for everyone at Tech Talk 2019!
