Missed the Mompreneurs Mixer? Meet the Women Who Joined Us, HERE!

Last weekend we held a "Mompreneurs Mixer" at Salvador Dobbs here in Boerne.  This was really a networking event for all local female business-owners, not necessarily just moms, but "Mompreneurs Mixer" has a nice ring to it, don't you think?  We ended up with fifteen amazing women at this event and it was an afternoon full of cocktails, introductions, story-telling, surprise giveaways (thanks, Beya!), and a whole lot of fun.  If you missed it, don't worry, I'm positive we'll be hosting another event in the near future.  But for now, let's meet the ladies of THIS mixer, shall we?
