Getting to know Bellevue

I’m on a quest to get to know my new city. I want to know ‘who’ this city is outside of its reputation. So, I’m getting out around town to places, events, meetings, activities and anywhere I’m invited to meet the people of Bellevue.

Last night, I attended a networking event for women business owners. It’s a monthly gathering called Awesome Women Entrepreneurs (AWE) founded by Deborah Jones with Isagenix, International. We were allowed to bring our business promotional items to set up and we were each given 3 minutes to share our businesses with those who attended.  

We met at Pearl Bar & Dining Restaurant in Lincoln Square. Great atmosphere, great food and great conversation. I loved it! This AWE meeting wasn’t all about business. The dinner table allowed us to converse in small groups to talk about any and everything women talk about when we get together… including men!
