We are prepping for tomorrow’s Meet & Munch in Glen Ellyn, held in conjunction with Crain’s Small Business Week. Our ad was featured in last week’s issue, and Shannon’s Irish Pub will host us as in past years.

Our last Meet & Munch at Avalon Day Spa was a blast.

Several new members attended and we gathered to discuss how to take care of ourselves amidst being focused on growing our businesses.

Chief Inspiration Officer Bonnie Conte gave us a tour of the lovely spa, which incited me to book a massage for later that day. The spa offers hair services, nail services, and waxing.

We sipped wine while learning more about each other’s businesses.

A raffle resulted in me getting a personal consultation on what brush to choose, and I also was gifted a lovely nail polish.

Everyone left with a little goodie bag.

This included a cute little guy who will help my customers sign their square transactions going forward.

Of course I couldn’t just let the tissue paper gather dust, and it promptly got converted into new pendants.
