National Networking Tour for Women Entrepreneurs
Fusion is an award-winning, interactive, unique connecting National Networking Tour for Women Entrepreneurs. It is not a place where you come to throw your business card around to everyone in the room. Nor is it a place where people get to work the room. Fusion is a place where you learn from everyone you meet and take the best of those conversations to apply to your business. Also I specifically connect people who need each other’s services and may not know where or how to find the right connection. Fusion is the epitome of networking. It takes the best of everything about networking and puts it in one place for attendees to make the necessary connections for their business. I started this event because I was tired of seeing many women attend networking events, not speak to anyone or throw their card around with no return on their time and/or money investment. Fusion allows women to be in a woman only environment, which takes out the competition from men, and truly have a space to network the way we naturally do and in turn make the connections we need.

I have had the pleasure of, first of all, meeting such a dynamic persona such as Vernetta. I find her to be solid in her goals, asperations, and intentions. Her personality is warm with a sense of strength that ensures that you are seeing the real Vernetta. Collaborating with her is enlightening and powerful. I attended one of her F.U.S.I.O.N. events and immediately saw her vision and had buy in. She is a person of her word and very knowledgeable about the subject matters she specializes in. In business, we do business with people we know, like, and trust. I knew that this phenomenal woman was one of those people. As I love to help people reach their goals in business, Vernetta shares the same passion. Any opportunity to team with her, in any capacity, is an experience one should not hesitate in doing.

What is Fusion? Fusion is the type of networking event we all dream about. It’s a place where you not only learn how to strengthen your network but ways to grow your business. Fusion is the accumulation of all the best takeaways you need in one place.
Who attends Fusion? Women entrepreneurs and community leaders who are looking to strengthen their network. The ladies are either moving from employee to entrepreneur or in a rut in their business. These ladies come with the intent to add someone of value to their network they can continually speak with in regards to helping them grow their business.
Why would I want to attend Fusion? You should attend Fusion if you are tired of attending networking events and receiving nothing in return. Fusion is not going to automatically give you a chance to close a deal but the connections you make will lead to bigger opportunities and deals for your business.
What will I takeaway from the panel? The panelists are here to share their journey with you so you may shorten your learning curve. Most of the panelists also offer a product or service that your company may benefit from. These are ladies in your community who can help your business in some way.
What is the past success rate? For 2012, Fusion had an 80% success rate of connecting women to what they needed as far as resources and to the right connections.
Why is the price higher than most networking events? You are paying for the value you will receive. The information and connections you receive from attending Fusion will cover your initial investment. The connections you make will help you find greater opportunities for your business which in turn will earn you a bigger profit.
Will vendors be available? No. This is a networking event. If you are a vendor you won’t have time to network properly. Selling products and services while there is not the purpose. The purpose is to add valuable people to your network. Networking events are not the place to sell anyway. Most people do not buy from a person they just met in regards to their business.
