Mims, President of MarketDone, specializes in marketing and PR management for entrepreneurs, small businesses and non-profits.

What Is TEN? A dynamic every-other-month workshop and collaboration opportunity to learn new ways to build relationships and hone networking skills. Participants will apply what they learn with other professionals on site, in real time. There are new people with new energy every time, and a great number of repeat attendees! This is not your typical networking event!

How is TEN different from other networking opportunities in Tallahassee? We are a networking workshop where you’ll learn something new and then practice it five minutes after you learn it! It will challenge us (in a supportive and safe way) to get out of our comfort zone and do something different than the traditional meet and greet protocol.
