    Fantastic presentation during our Thursday Speaker Series! Lin O'Neill of Futures Consulting knocked it out of the park with "What got you here, won't get you there". Still pumped about last week's tremendously successful MEET! East Dallas where we collected $1,225 to be donated to Friends of Wednesdays Child. Continuing the momentum, we've got 53 in attendance today including 6 Newbies. East Dallas Networking - making East Dallas a better place to live, work and play
