How do you stay motivated in the face of everything that could go wrong?

Group discussion session on how one can stay motivated and not lose energy and a positive outlook.

Meet other entrepreneurs and independent product developers.   Bring your questions and "group-source" the answers.  Hear from specialized experts willing to share their insights.  Get energized and stay motivated to pursue your goals.  Relax and have interesting conversations.  Participants have found clients and collaborators through this Meetup.

Software, electronics, life sciences, med tech, services, products, materials, designs--innovators of a wide variety of value propositions participate. Both for-profit and non-profit entrepreneurs participate.  Many are starting their second or third business.  A partner in McKinsey & Company (NYC) turned up one evening. We have enjoyed meeting people from China, Korea, Saudi Arabia, Italy, India, Bangladesh and other countries.  Many are newcomers to Minneapolis/St. Paul.  Multi-generational, our age range has been 20 to 70+.  Several investors make periodic visits for those of you looking for capital.

RSVPs on the Meetup website don't include participants from our hosts personal email list and LinkedIn groups.  Many regulars just show up.  We don't cancel a meeting due to low RSVPs on Meetup.  Our largest attendance was about 20 people, but I've enjoyed smaller groups where I get to hear more from each person.

Let the host know what kind of expert you would like to have at a future meeting and feel free to refer speakers.

    A friend and I are working on starting our own entrepreneur group on the U of M campus. I'm working on writing up some topics to discuss and I found a speaker who said he would host a group if we ever wanted.

    Serge, I was wondering if you would like to be a part of this? I'd like to use the group to find people around campus who share the same ideas as myself.

    I'm excited to see you all of you again in a few weeks!

    My biggest issue with new innovations on campus is to stop all the negative talk about new teaching and innovation methods and political grandstanding to keep things exactly as they were when Plato sat on the steps yapping, yapping, yapping. Can we just do this already instead of spend years talking about it?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
