    Impressive - getting to hear where and how individuals took the leap of faith to begin their own businesses was very inspiring.

    Great pearls of wisdom were cast upon the audience last night! For any entrepreneur or would-be entrepreneur, there was masters' degree to be gained from soaking up what the speakers had to say. Don't miss the next one.

    So far we have five business founders scheduled to share their launch story. Up close and personal - you can ask questions and learn from their experience.

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.
