    As Greg and I walked in the room, we were immediately greeted by the big smile of Peter. He was warm, welcoming and instantly we felt comfortable. The meeting ran very smoothly. There was humour and a definite feeling of encouragement and non-judgment; everyone wanting to help each other. It was a very positive feeling and Greg and I look forward to attending on a more regular basis.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
