It’s amazing what two moms can tackle during an impromptu girls night out dinner. The other night I shared a delicious dinner, cocktails, and time with a girlfriend who I haven’t shared a meal with in probably a few years. Between the two of us, we have seven kids and two entrepreneurial spirits that could take on the world, if only we had the time.
As a mompreneur, there are people you want to surround yourself with. Creative thinkers, visionaries, doers, and realists. Someone you can get honest feedback from and different perspectives. You can share successes or any setbacks without feeling guilty or pressure in taking a little longer to reach your dreams as a mompreneur. You can also share challenges faced by moms that are balancing motherhood with career goals, business plans, and cash flow.
As a mompreneur, having that supportive network of friends or mentors is so important when pursuing your career goals and dreams. Your network is your lifeline for business tips and advice, resources, and friendship. As busy as life gets, it’s important to take time for yourself and catch up with your network to stay on track and check-in.
For our catch up dinner, we went to BRIO Tuscan Grille to enjoy their new menu offerings. A Tale of Two Risottos. From January 19 to March 27, BRIO Tuscan Grille is inviting patrons to enjoy the perfect preparation of two classic risotto offerings – lobster and shrimp risotto or sea scallops with risotto.
The Risotto was absolutely delicious. Fresh Parmesan, creamy and with fresh asparagus, mushrooms, herbs, shrimp and a juicy lobster tail. Fantastic is an understatement.
We enjoyed our meal while also discussing different revenue streams and challenges in motherhood. I left the dinner thinking about my vision for my future and the items I had placed on my vision board just a few weeks ago with the same friend.
I left Brio with my heart, and stomach, deliciously full.
Ready for your own dinner with a friend at Brio? I’m giving away a $50.00 gift card to one lucky winner to enjoy with their favorite mompreneur, friend, mentor, or the family! BRIO offers Brunch, lunch, dinner, and a fantastic happy hour!
