    I think as we get to know each other at these monthly meetups, we'll get a sense of that person's business sense, how they go about providing services and their personalities (important re working w/customers). That will give us a basis for recommending them when an opportunity comes up. In-person beats virtual any day for me.

    As usual: everybody wants to sell but nobody wants to buy......

      That takes time. I believe in building relationships first and then the other stuff falls into place.

      Meetup is a great idea to meet partners or let me say an alternative movement to virtual Facebook. Small Business owners Meetup is even greater idea because benefits both ends : we know about what we do business now. I hope I'll see more real business owners next time. Every businessman knows about time is money. Investment into networking is an important part of everyone's business plan; without network sales is impossible. It was my pleasure to meet people who has an idea about running mutual business. I hope I'm going to meet more business partners or just thankful customers.

    So sorry I missed the meetup tonight. Our furnace broke down overnight and pipes froze. I spent the day and into the evening with the plumbers. Thankfully we have heat again. I hope it's not too long before the next meetup of this group.
