    Hi - solid presentation. Lots of good ideas. The meeting room didn't open itself to networking. I'll come earlier next time to meet more of the gang.

    Well presented topic by Sandi Garcia. Tons of information on visual slides with Sandi guiding us through with her knowledge and experience. I have since checked out Sandi's blog - take a look!

    Sandi is a great speaker and gave an excellent presentation. I'm more inspired to treat my small business like a real business and I learned some new tools that will help to do this. the other members are a great group of people who want to share ideas and help each other.

    Sorry for the link on the message I sent, I don't know why my computer is putting links on my message and when I am listing things????????

    Gary thanks for putting this up there on the traffic. And he is absolutely right about not missing taking that last exit, I did that once and found out that there was no way to turn around but to go all the way across that bridge and then back and you don't want that to happen in commute traffic :) We want you there to enjoy the evening and not get stressed out!!

    All who have signed up, we are depending on you to be there, if you are not going to make it PLEASE let us know THIS morning I have to call the restaurant for the count. Thanks so much.

    I live in the area near Mimi's and I have learned that the traffic can be bad on 101 northbound, even until after 7 PM. My suggestion is that if you are going north or south to Mimi's take 280 and then get on 92 east, get off at the last exit before the San Mateo Bridge. (Don't miss that exit or You'll Be Sorry.) This is a good time to check Google Maps/Traffic to plan your route. Give yourself plenty of time to get there.

      Thanks for the forewarning, Gary. I will be sure to take 280.

    I better come, I'm presenting! :)

  • Sherry G.

    This will be one of the most important meetings for those serious sellers. Always good info from Sandi when she share her experiences and expertise.
    CAUTION: If you say you are going then you will have to be there because we have to make a commitment to the restaurant on how many people are coming. They have to hire extra staff to accommodate us and we have a special room set aside.
    SO PLEASE do not say you are coming and then don't show up!!!!
