In his classic success book, Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that one of the keys to becoming more successful is to join a mastermind group. So, by being a member of The Vancouver Entrepreneur Mastermind Group, you'll be able to learn and use the knowledge, experience, and expertise of other entrepreneurs and business owners to skyrocket your enterprise to new heights... quicker and easier than you can possibly imagine.
As a member, you'll have the opportunity to share your wisdom and skills with other members, helping them become more successful. In addition to feeling good for doing so, you likely will acquire customers (clients, patients, members, or subscribers) for your business... and even life-long friends.
Hi, my name is Larry Lee, and I've been an entrepreneur for 18 years. I've operated both offline and online enterprises. Since 2000, I've been teaching thousands of American business owners how to get and keep customers life.
On February 12, 2007, I started this meetup so I could share my knowledge and expertise with my fellow Canadian entrepreneurs, like you. Unfortunately, a few months later, I got involved in two new business ventures that required a lot of my time. As a result, I had to put my meetup group on the back burner.
If you've been with me since the beginning, thanks for your patience. Because I now have more time to network with you and other amazing entrepreneurs throughout Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, I will conduct at least one event a month, starting in May 2012.
If this is your first visit to my meetup, welcome!
Coming here tells me you have the desire to take your enterprise to the next level, no matter how successful it it is right now. And if you join my Mastermind Group, you'll discover many powerful tools you can use to turn your business goals into reality quicker and easier than you can imagine.
The purpose of The Ultimate Entrepreneur Mastermind Group (TUEMG) is to help you double your business within 12 months and have more time to enjoy life. If this sounds exhilarating to you, join us today.
The format of TUEMG is unique and more effective than any meetup or networking functions you've attended.
Before telling you about the structure of our meetup, let me first share with you the drawbacks of most business networking events.
Let's say John Anderson goes to a business meetup or a networking function that has 40 people and lasts for two hours. His strategy would be to talk to and collect business cards from as many attendees as possible. He also would want to hand out his card to as many folks as possible.
As John speaks to his fellow entrepreneurs, he would try to learn as much as he can about that person, figuring out whether they're suitable to do business with each other. At the end of the event, John has talked to 17 individuals, collected 19 business cards, and handed his card to 23 participants.
What do you think will happen with the contacts John has made and the business cards he has gathered at the networking event?
If you said, "Nothing," you're right.
When John goes to his office the next day, he plans to call or email some of the people he had met last night. But because he needs to handle his current workload, he puts away the business cards and makes a note to get in touch with his potential prospects or joint-venture partners at a later date.
The following week, when John finally has time to contact some of these people, he has forgotten the reasons for wanting to communicate with them. He looks at each person's business card and tries to remember the conversation he had with him or her. Unfortunately, his attempt was futile. So he puts away their cards and hopes to see these individuals at a future meetup or networking event.
Isn't it a shame that John wasn't able to benefit from the networking function that consumed several hours of his precious time, which he can't get back?
Although you may laugh at John for being an ineffective networker, if you think about your own situation carefully, you'll realize you also may have benefited little, or even not at all, from the meetups or networking events you attended.
Sure, while you might have a great time drinking, eating, and socializing with the people you met at each function, because the organizer didn't have an effective structure for it, you didn't get to capitalize on the power of networking.
Just as you have many reasons (or excuses) for not contacting the individuals you talked to at the meetup, they also have similar ones for not communicating with you. So you end up not speaking with them after the event, losing out on an enormous opportunity to generate new business or to obtain referrals.
To prevent this unfortunate situation from happening with The Vancouver Entrepreneur Mastermind Group, the structure of our two-hour (7:00 PM to 9:00 PM) meetup or networking event will be as follows:
7:00 - 7:15: I, as your organizer and host, will share with you some marketing ideas and strategies that you can use to generate more sales and profits the next day.
7:16 - 7:26: A special speaker (whom could be one of the members of our group) will reveal information that you can use to make or save money, or to enhance certain aspects of your business or personal life.
7:27 - 7:36: A second special presenter (whom could be one of the members of our group) will disclose information that you can use to make or save money, or to improve some areas of your business or personal life.
7:37 - 8:20 : Each attendee (except for the two special speakers) will have up to one minute to introduce himself or herself to the rest of the group. He or she will provide a
handout to other members at the meetup. (You can see the handout in the Files section located at the left side)
8:21 - 9:00: The members network with each other. Since you know a little bit about every attendee (from their introduction), you can speak directly to the ones you're interested in. Even if you don't have time to talk to all of them, because you've received their handout, you can follow up with them over the next few days.
If you've attended some other business meetups or networking events, you probably agree that the structure for TUEMG is unique and you will benefit a lot more from ours.
When you come to our event, you will learn many tested-and-proven marketing and business ideas and strategies that you can use to generate more sales and profits almost immediately. So check out our next function and sign up for it right away.
I look forward to meeting you.
To your success,
