Help support your MeetupChip in
Just as the headline says, this group is for those with professional careers and small business owners who want to network within the San Diego region. Our mission statement is to build a small business community where we promote each other, learn from each other, do business with each other. We hope to provide a chance for people to create strong business and strategic alliances and lasting professional, business relationship and making new friends! If you're new in town and want to meet other driven and goal -oriented people or simply just want to learn and grow your opportunities, this is a great place for you. We challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and meet individuals you otherwise may never have. Why do it this way? Because you will never know where you'll meet your next great friend, or your next business opportunity.
Indeed, we have two meetings each month: "A formal" meeting where we pick one or two people from the group to present an informative topic where everyone will learn something. It gives each member the chance to share their expertise; therefore, providing more opportunity to build credible relationships. I believe this type of networking to be highly effective. Our second monthly meeting or informal meeting usually over "Cocktails and Conversation" where we get to know more about each other and develop long and lasting professional and business relationships. However, we always start our event with the round table introduction where you get to introduce yourself and the reason why you came so do not be late. That way, it gives you a chance to target two or three people you really want to connect with.
Look! Networking is all about what you put in. You pick few groups you like and make an effort to come to their event regularly. I have seen that people do business with others because they see you over and over again and become familiar with your face.
The people included in this group are: Engineers, Physicians, Nurses, Dentists, Lawyers, Veterinarians, Optometrists, Attorneys, CPAs, Architects, Analysts, Business Owners, and Business Management, etc.
On the business side of things, we are all about promoting from within the group. If you have an offer or service, come forward and show us what you have. As you come to each and every subsequent meet-up, people will recognize and trust you. It's very simple if you think about it. All good things come with time. And the effort you put forth will be rewarded in the end.
Our meet-ups include happy hours, monthly night-on-the-town, community service projects, and educational seminars.
