Jennifer Rose is the executive director of the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce. She helps local business owners connect and network because it’s impossible to do everything yourself, so you need to seek experts. Jennifer likes to think she’s an influencer in the community, and she encourages entrepreneurs to ask for advice and tap into the diversity of ideas their communities have to offer.

The benefits of community networking. Jennifer explains why entrepreneurs and small businesses benefit from helping each other by sharing ideas, advice, and solutions to common problems.
How to leverage your local network, especially during trying times. Jennifer says, never stop connecting with other local businesses because they will become your support network and understand what you’re going through.
- What your local Chamber of Commerce can do for you. Jennifer “kicks doors in for people,” and that’s not all the Chamber does. It also offers a variety of resources to help you, but just like anything else, you have to take advantage of what’s offered to make the most of it.
