    Not signing up wasn't an issue at all... they had seats on the floor but Tara saved us seats with the group, Thanks Tara! The talk was funny, educational and the Q&A was outstanding.

      I agree! What an incredible woman. I'm completely fascinated by her. I bought one of her books and got it autographed. Thanks, Tara! Hope to see everyone soon!

    I got to the lecture at around 6:45 so I didn't try to find you all. Lecture was outstanding.

    It means you don't have a guaranteed seat. Once all the ticket holders are seated at 6:45, those without tickets will be allowed in. For those of you who weren't able to get tickets I think it'll just mean we may not be able to sit together. But I have no way to know for sure.

      Thank you for the information, Tara. I will still arrive at 6:30 to meet everyone.

    I tried to reserve a ticket, but registration is now closed. By any chance, does someone have an extra ticket? Thanks!

    If the registration is closed, does that mean there are no more tickets?

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.
