The City Influencer wants to take traditional networking event and crank things up a bit.
We’re excited to announce the first ever monthly business social club for entrepreneurs, small business owners and creatives of color in Dallas.
So what is a social club? In the traditional sense of the word, social clubs give individuals with similar interests a way to gather for the purposes of sharing information, ideas, conversations and connections over food and drink.
Cities like New York and Los Angeles have long been home to some of the world’s most interesting and exclusive member only social clubs.
We felt it was time to bring some of that flavor to the Big D.
The Net, which will take place on the third Tuesday of every month, will offer members monthly, unprecedented networking opportunities with thought leaders and critical decision makers as well as benefits from local shops, airlines, hotels, lifestyle brands, and business services.
The Net kicks off TONIGHT and will feature a special pitch session with four dynamic business leaders that will not only share advice and lessons learned, but also their thoughts on the current business climate for Dallasites and those looking to do business here.
We’re excited to introduce you to our esteemed panel of advisors. Meet our next advisor, Waylon Tate
Name and Title: Waylon Tate | President & Founder
Company: J.Waylon & Associates | Public Relations + Advertising. A tailored suite of our extensive public relations and advertising expertise paired with unique, progressive results-driven solutions.
Area(s) of Expertise : Startup, PR and Marketing
If You Could Invite Anyone to a Dream Business Dinner You Were Hosting, Who Would It Be? A young entrepreneur that has no experience, so we could collectively teach them the ropes and pay it forward.
The Best Piece of Business Advice Ever Received? The life of an entrepreneur will inevitably be a journey of ebbs and flows. Prepare for the long haul.
Your Thoughts On Doing Business in Dallas? Dallas is a breeding ground for inter-industry business partnerships. Our mixed enterprise culture of Fortune 500’s and small business startups provides the opportunity for each to recognize and learn from the strengths and weaknesses from both.
The Most Common Mistake You See New Business Owners or Entrepreneurs Make? Not reserving enough initial capital to promote your startup and market your business to larger audiences. The success of most entrepreneurs relies heavily on visibility and relevance, neither of which can exist without an effective communications plan and PR strategy.
What Are You Currently Working On? We are currently creating client content and communications plans for 2017, and fostering new client relationships.
What Do You Do For Fun? Where Do You Go? Working in such a fast-paced industry requires many decompression breaks when schedules allow. I love to take quick get-away trips to place near and abroad.

Join The City Influencer TONIGHT, 6/21, to meet and explore ideas with other Dallas entrepreneurs and creatives. You’ll also get an opportunity to learn about membership in The Net and a chance to join that evening as well.
