    It was great meeting everyone yesterday at Burma. I came late and only got to meet a few people, but each one of them was a quality contact. I'm very much looking forward to building relationships as I continue to build my startup. See you next month!

    Hey everyone,

    I hope you guys had as much fun yesterday as I did. The event was so cool. We made all kinds of connections to people we would never meet anywhere else. I personally secured six leads and connected with a number of really interesting people. I also had a great meal. I recommend the Curry Chicken. It's delicious :)

    If you are looking for a good event that will be both productive and fun you can't go wrong by coming to the next one they're holding on September 15th. I know I'll be there :)

    Hey everyone ,

    I hope you had a good time today. I was your moderator in the front room.

    I enjoyed meeting and speaking with all of you.

    Today was a really great day. People had the chance to make a lot of connections, enjoy some good food, and have a good time. Also, the turnout was great.

    A little about me: I'm a Career and Resume Accelerator.
    I specialize in helping people figure out what they want to do with their life.
    Then I help them put together an accelerated resume so they get hired to do it.

    Whether, you are out of work, or know someone who is, you want to talk to me.
    You are losing $$, every month you go without a job.
    Invest a little now, make a lot later.

    When, you want to talk to me, about my career and resume acceleration services, email [masked]

    I look forward to seeing what, you all, email me.

    Have a prodigious day :)
