Come for a Great Speaker and Networking

Attention Please:  I don’t think this will be a waste of your time!

Larry Luxenberg has taken over the Rockland/Westchester meet up group and has asked me (Kevin Hardy) to once again to join him in his endeavor, which basically means he needs a mouthpiece!

We are trying a new format and location. Larry has secured a dynamic speaker to kick things off and I went and secured Emmett’s Castle as our meeting place. It is a beautiful, friendly place and rumor has it that he may be able to pour a good pint.

So here are my thoughts:

We are not going to pass around referrals like BNI. We are not going to discuss community concerns like the Chamber of Commerce. We are not going to make decisions on community and world projects like the Rotary. We are not going to discuss local government and we are certainly not going to ask politicians to speak to us about what is wrong with the other guy. 

In short, we are not going to build parks, cure disease, solve illiteracy, feed the masses or invent a new religion. These may all be good things but this meeting is about you and your business!

We are going to go about this is two ways. We will bring a good to great speaker or program each month that may give you some ideas that help you improve your business.

More importantly we will try and get a ton people together and see if contacts can be made.

No pretenses here… do not hesitate to introduce yourself, give someone your card and talk about what you do. Wade through the crowd until you find some people you don’t know and start a conversation.

It is a numbers game people. The more people the better your chances you have of creating some new business. We want lots of people so tell everyone you know and drag them along.

It is going to cost you $15.00 at the door of Emmett’s Castle in Pearl River. Your only commitment is to come, network and give all your money to Larry and all your transportation needs to me.
