Are you a woman with a business or a business idea but you're looking for some ladies to help give you a bit of a boost?

YYC Fempreneurs is hosting an event that will help you make connections with other like-minded women. 

Cochranite, Lyndsie Barrie with YYC Fempreneurs says FAB 5 in the Park is "Kind of like speed dating except it's way better because there's no cheesy pick-up lines and it's a bunch of fabulous fempreneurs who want to meet and support other local entrepreneurial woman."

Barrie hosted four successful events similar to this but online during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Then we ended up doing it on Zoom and on Zoom they have these breakout rooms. The events were super successful, the women were just raving about them. Then I had this idea to do it in the park, just on picnic blankets where we could still be together but be a little bit spaced out."

She says this is geared for women who either have a business or are wanting to start one. 

"Women who have a business are going to get the most benefit out of this. Then again if you are a woman and you have a business idea and you're not quite ready to take the plunge and you're just kind of wanting to build your support network before you do that, then this would be a great event for you as well."

Barrie says "The fab 5 concept was introduced to me many years ago when I first became a business owner and it was that concept of the five people you spend the most time with are going to influence you a lot. They're going to influence your decisions, your mood. So you have to be picky with who you are going to spend the most time with."

She says the event will allow women to have the time to get a good conversation going. 

"This is an opportunity for women to meet five new people, they're going to meet more than five, but they're going to be able to have really deep, meaningful conversations with five women at this event."

Barrie says they've had anywhere from 13 to 16 women take part in the online events and she's anticipating there will be about 20 women at this one.

FAB 5 in the Park is set to go on July 9 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
