We should start the New Year by meeting new people and building our PCN (Personal Contact Network) - This can easily be done through a Canberra Enterepreneur's Meetup.
We only have one problem - I'm not able to be in Canberra for a few months - so I need someone to volunteer to organize the meetup.
It is very easy - you locate a place where 10-20 people can meet and greet - - pick a night - and let me know - I'll schedule and then all you need to do is be there. Since the true spirit of being an entrepreneur is making things happen - you should not have any problems with people meeting and talking to each other.
If you want the meeting to be more involved - just go for it - just remember - many people are busy and want only to meet, have a drink, and converse after work hours.
So - who wants to give it a go? - Believe me - it is enjoyable to meet new people and who knows what can happen when entrepreneurial minds meet. New Business? - Growth? - Opportunities Galore!
Give at least two weeks notice for a meetup - and the location should not charge for entry - if using a private room - try to negotiate for free use - after all - entrepreneurs should come out ahead in negotiations.
