Thanks to all who made it to our first Boost!

Thanks to all who made it out to our first Boost Wednesday. It was a great experience and I learned a ton. I am so excited about everyone who made it out. Maybe it is just me but the room full of relative strangers seems to quickly feel very comfortable together. This means so much to me, the humble organizer, because I see great things ahead for all of us as we learn to do business smarter (and not harder, as John quipped) and discover new ways to help each other. I?m looking forward to a few follow-up coffees to get to know some new folks even better. I dare say we even had fun!
Our speaker John Nelson was great and challenged us with some new thinking according to a non-traditional but more effective way of selling. I welcome anyone to post pointers to share and to further discuss; they are too numerous for me to even start. John even brought prizes for a couple lucky winners. If you have questions of John, you can contact him at [address removed] or[masked]-5200.
Toast was fantastic, although I was so preoccupied that I didn?t eat. Zach?s burrito consumed beside me looked fantastic. Toast gave us all some coupons and awarded the person with the shortest commute a gift card. We probably should have awarded the one who traveled the furthest.
Stay tuned for the posting for December?s Boost. I have it all lined up and am excited.
A couple questions for you to ponder and give me feedback on.
Are we hungry enough to improve our businesses to meet twice a month instead of once? We decided at Boost to stick to once a month throught the end of the year and maybe in `10 increase the frequency. I have so many speakers eager to share with us their expertise that I?m probably just overanxious.
Would a later time like noon be more manageable? That was one recommendation. I want to protect our time as that is invaluable.
My wonderful project manager April tells me I can write too much (that?s how I process better than speaking), so I?ll let you get back to business.
Work smart and stay close to Boost.
