You might have headed outdoors to enjoy the weather, play with your pets, or meet up with your gal pals for a ladies-only brunch. At which you enjoyed the camaraderie that comes with chatting to other women you genuinely enjoy, respect and learn from.

That’s what we hope you’ll experience today, as we launch the #wgbiz chat series – a monthly (second Monday of every month) Twitter-based conversation by, for and of women in business.
Just as we do at this blog, we’ll chat about issues women entrepreneurs face, take questions on particular topics, and talk about anything and everything we need to grow as women entrepreneurs… and women.
Our very own Tinu Abayomi-Paul will join us as our featured guest on April 12. As I’ve said before, Tinu’s a social media powerhouse.
Who better to talk about the benefits of inbound marketing someone who has the bona fides to show us how to generate leads and traffic from the WWW? The founder of Free Traffic Tips? I mean, why wouldn’t you ask Tinu?
As she’s been known to say, you “can’t knock her hustle.”
Won’t it be fun doing the hustle together?
All you have to do to follow along or participate is jump on Twitter and watch (and/or use) the #wgbiz hashtag (that hashtag’s important, since it will allow us to capture all chat-related tweets in a post-chat transcript).
Talk to you soon!
