[MOUNTAIN VIEW, MO] – The Amelia Network is hosting a gathering for women in business to be held on October 21, 2021, at Viandel Vineyard in Mountain View, MO starting at 5:30 in celebration of National Small Business Women's Month, a month-long celebration of the women behind businesses and what they do for their communities.
There are over 11 million (and growing!!) women owned small businesses in the United States. In 2012, 44 percent of women small business owners also had children under the age of 18 in their household. That means, by supporting women-owned businesses, you’re also supporting families.
Businesses owned by women come in all varieties. Juliet Cobb, assists her husband and business partner, John, in running two local businesses, Service Master and ABC Carpet. Juliet is a member of The Amelia Network and when asked about National Women’s Small Business Month said, “I am thankful that it is possible today for women to have their own career, a successful family, and a meaningful personal life. National Women’s Small Business Month is a good time to remind us to show support to women in business who face unique challenges and produce unique and robust results every day.” She encourages women to “believe in [ourselves], don’t take no for an answer, and find a great network to support and lean on”. That is what The Amelia Network is all about, a gathering place for business women and professionals to network and support one another.
Attendees will be able to enjoy wood-fired pizza sponsored by the Ozarks Small Business Incubator and purchase wine all while networking with other women. The night will include a presentation from the owner of Viandel Vineyard, Johnna Swineford. Women planning to attend the Oct. 21st Meetup at Viandel Vineyard in Mountain View, MO are asked to register at ozsbi.com/events or call OzSBI at 417-256-9724.
