    A very good Meetup Topic! The evening was very interactive, intimate group which helps to facilitate good networking and conversation, sharing and Q and A. I learned a lot about Buying and Selling Businesses. Robert Sher's book is great, easy to read, He is an expert in his industry! Most of the attendees offered great examples and then Mitchell opened the floor up to Elevator Pitches. I wish to Thank Mitchell very much for offering a special Introduction for me to the group for my Event Planning, Event Marketing Services! It is always my great pleasure to serve Mitchell as Event Registration Manager and help facilitate, welcome and introduce guests to the Meetup and to our Speakers!

    Mitchell always hosts outstanding Meetups, very interesting speakers/topics, they is always a great opportunity to learn something new and walk away with the Book of the selected Author!

    Thank you very much Mitchell for all you are doing for HappyAbout and helping Authors with publishing books.
