IMPORTANT NOTICE: THIS IS GROUP ABOUT TEACHING MEMBERS HOW AND WHEN TO DISCUSS AND PROMOTE NEW IDEAS.  THE GROUP WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO HOLD SOCIAL FUNCTIONS SINCE NETWORKING IS A WAY TO ASSESS ONE'S DISCOVERIES.  PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS GROUP TO PASS MESSAGES ABOUT YOUR DISCOVERIES OR IDEAS UNTIL YOU HAVE ATTENDED ONE OF THE INITIAL MEETINGS AND FOLLOWED THE STEPS TAUGHT.  POSTING IDEAS PRIOR TO ATTENDING A MEETING MAY LEAD TO LOSS.  THE GROUP WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSSES.

Over the last year I have attended many meetings where people attended to get information about presenting their ideas to potential investors.  Many people simply cannot take the first step because they are bombarded with sales people from business services organizations.  I've had people trying to sell me worker's comp insurance, website services, etc. at these meetings.  What's the first step?  This group is only about taking the first step if you have a discovery or idea with potential.  You don't need the $5,000 web site yet, an accountant, or lawyer.  Attend some group meetings and you will be on your way to finding out why the first step is easier than you think and will not leave you broke.

This group is also committed to it's original social missions.  Together, we can have a great time.  All suggestions for events are welcome.

Sincerely,

Mike

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.
