MASON CITY, Iowa – For Ron Rezabek, with Unique Dent Solutions, it was a big night.
He’s here to show the local’s what his new business is all about.
“I’ve been in a lot of businesses. I’ve been fortunate, I’ve worn a lot of hats and this just looked like a really good opportunity and I love doing it,” said Rezabek.
Rezabek started his own dent solution business.
What makes it unique is that he doesn’t use any paint or chemicals to fix those pesky dents.
His goal is to get his face out there, to meet potential customers, and to see what other businesses are offering as well
“There’s a lot of interest in a lot of different businesses here. I’m getting a lot of interest in what I’m doing and people have a lot of questions and wonder what i do and how I do it, and what kind of tools I use. It’s just really neat,” said Rezabeck.
That’s why Pat Palmer, owner of The Computer Guy business, says he keeps going to these events every year.
His business is based in Hampton, but he does work all over North Iowa, so attending expos like these is crucial.
“So I still would like to meet people who could be potential clients so its nice for the chamber to have something like this when I can be here and lot of other businesses can be here. We can network, plus see people who come through the door,” said Palmer.
Palmer says for local businesses to work in the communities around the area, they must ban together.
“We have to work together as a business community, it’s not just the computer guy against the world, it’s a room full of different businesses that are here and as a team things get accomplished,” said Palmer.
Kara Ruge is the Marketing Director at the Chamber of Commerce in Mason City, and says that’s exactly what this is all about.
“Good time to get your members together. You’ve got so many members and you work with all of them however they don’t get a lot of chances to network and that’s what our events are here to do,” said Ruge.
Ruge says they usually do lots of events like these in the Winter and Spring as well, but this year was the first year they did the “Unleashed” part with the more friendly, smaller get together.
