A Powerful Network of Connections, with vision, leadership, and integrity, that drives your business to the next level and beyond.
C2BLI was originated in March 2011 by Midge Leavey, owner of Miss Midgies Preschool. Midge wanted to connect with like-minded people who have a passion for business, help others succeed, and learn from others.
She did just that and started her own networking group. She began by reaching out to people who had a passion to “make a difference” in the world and to our community. Some of the people she added to her group were, or still are, parents of Miss Midgies Preschool or staff members of hers who have more passions of their own.
One of Midge’s first assignments for the group members was to visit each others businesses and see how they are run, see pricing, friendliness, etc. She wanted to make certain that nobody was referring a business that was not run well, friendly, reasonable, helpful and run with passion.
Midge’s dreams came true when this small group of passionate, like-minded people became a family. This group laughs together, cries together, supports each other and celebrates each others successes.
As a Team we come up with ideas of how we can help each business succeed as a whole. We collaborate with each other and make things happen. For instance, Maxim Events offers DJ services, karaoke, party entertainment of all kinds. We paired Maxim Events with JBella Cleaning Service to clean up after parties, serve, etc. Need a tent for your party? Avenue Party Rentals is available! To complete your party experience we have ECAM photography. Need hair and makeup for a communion or sweet 16? We have that too!
The great part about hiring many of us as a whole? We work extremely well together.
Midge Leavey, owner of Miss Midgies Preschool also offers book signings for her book, THE MISSING MOMMY CURE while John Lepre the Magician entertains the kids too!
Our wellness owners combine efforts as well with massage, reiki, yoga, meditation and more!
