    IF anyone else going alone to this and wants company, let me know, so we can make plans to meet up because it's hard to find a face in a crowd. It's always more fun with a group.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
