When I first attended Beers and Business cards, I wasn’t expecting much.  However, I met some fantastic people, who referred me to more fantastic people, and before I knew it my business was growing, I was making great friends, and learning from awesome mentors.  It only takes one event to start a cascade of positive changes in your life and career.

Beers and Business Cards changed my life! I’m sure that seems dramatic, but as a comedian and entertainer I suppose that’s my strength. Going to Beers and Business Cards has dramatically increased my name recognition, attendance to my shows, and my social media following. This group has provided amazing contacts for sponsorships! I’ve been able to meet my community of amazing business owners and be part of a thriving ecosystem of support. The classes help with aspects of my business I am weak at. Plus, you emulate who you are around, right? Who better to be around than this group of thriving entrepenuers! Kristy has showed me how to take my business to the next level, and helped me meet he right people to help make it happen!

There are many different networking groups in Central Oregon. However, I have met more people and have gained more connections at Beers And Business Cards than any of the other groups I’ve attended. In fact, attending BABC has helped solidify connections made at other networking groups. I’ve made friends, used people’s services, and have new favorite customers from BABC! I plan around the monthly events so I can attend. I think what impresses me most is how Kristy Starr is welcoming to anyone and everyone who attends. Plus, she is so willing to help others in business. I highly recommend attending Beers And Business Cards, picking 5 – 8 new people to connect with and schedule a one to one at a later date.

Starting a new business is an extremely daunting task.  Networking can be just as challenging and scary. It is difficult to know where to begin, what questions to ask, and who to ask them too. Kristy Star with Beers and Business cards helped to solve both of these struggles.  Beers and Business cards has created a very friendly, low pressure networking environment which allows attendees to feel comfortable approaching others to talk business.  Kristy does not hesitate to connect member to others that she feels will have mutual benefit and has the best interest of everyone in mind.
Kristy’s  kindness, creativity and dedication has helped us feel supported and valued as a business. Beers and Business cards has been paramount in us growing our skills and business practices and we highly recommend joining her group.
