FOR CHEESE LOVERS ONLY:
GIVE THE WORLD A TASTE TEST
Cheese! A strange exclamation, especially when used in a conversation about entrepreneurial business events.
Travel + Leisure published an article titled “The Best Places in the World to Vacation If You Love Cheese.” It features some incredible destinations around the world.
So I got to thinking: Could a cheese-loving entrepreneur, looking to create an original and unforgettable gathering, have it cheese-themed?
Maybe the question to ask is "Would they want it cheese-themed."
Entrepreneurs are unique individuals with unique messages.
Why wouldn’t an entrepreneur take what makes her unique (not to mention happy!) and create an event around it and be the Big Cheese?
(Keep in mind, this also works for chocolate, tea, chili, kayaking, country line dancing, gardening, or whatever else her imagination can conjure up.)
