Getting social while building more awareness

For the founder of Sociable Girl Squad, its all about having fun responsibly and making as many valuable connections as possible. Tiffany Lanier has created a new organization that she hopes many young business professionals can enjoy benefitting from. Sociable Girl Squad is an interactive event and networking group for savvy, ambitious, sophisticated, and stylish women in their Mid 20s and 30s, according to the organizations founder.

The Network

Lanier remembers her return home from Florida State University all to well. Finding a new group of friends or just meeting new people can prove to be a daunting task, which is one of the reasons Lanier started her company. I know how difficult it can be to meet professionals who are around the same age as you, Lanier said. You want to be able to meet people to try new things with. While the organization does offer new experiences for members, Lanier also emphasized the importance of networking and social awareness. As a young entrepreneur, I know how important it is to network, Lanier said. You never know who that one person could be who might be able to advance your business goals or change your professional life. The organization provides opportunities for other young professionals to meet one another in a chic and relaxing atmosphere. However, its not all about socializing. Although we are having fun building social networks, we also make it a point to build social awareness, Lanier said. Lanier is already working on projects with the non-profit organization Drops of Hope, and plans on expanding her own organization even further. By Julia Samuelsjsamuels@miamitimesonline.com
