Entrepreneurs do better when they work together. Most of us are too busy to network enough. Most of us don't feel we have time to get the kind of training we need. Most of us need ad hoc support from other entrepreneurs in order to make big leaps forward. This group helps solve all these issues for Entrepreneurs on the West Side.
We will meet at least twice a month to discuss topics like:
How to start a successful business quickly
How to sell and deliver products and services effectively online
How to create a website that closes customers
How to generate leads quickly and cost effectively
How to use sites like Freelance.com and Elance.com to build effective production teams fast
Sales tips, tricks and traps
Lead generation & cold calls
Closing sales face to face
How to network effectively
Effective social media marketing
Effective viral media marketing
How to fulfill orders and ship products quickly worldwide
Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques for more effective communication
Using new media to reach new markets
Ethical business practices
Starting a social enterprise
How to fund/finance a business
Where to find investors and lenders
These are just a few of the topics we'll address. Each month will be 1/3 lecture, 1/3 round table, and 1/3 face to face networking. You will leave each event with new tools and new solutions.
This is an enlightened entrepreneur network because we understand that most of the time, most people find what they look for, get what they ask for, and benefit most when they find a way to be of service to others. Good business creates great wealth not just for entrepreneurs but for the communities they serve.
