This Washington DC group is for everyone interested in Web Design, Graphics, Software Development as well as in networking, building online businesses and achieving one's Big Dream. Sometimes only a few web designer show up, therefore, we collaborate with similar groups which will meet at this same event for more new contacts, better networking, fun and mutual support. We appreciate the awesome leadership of Jonathan Perrelli, Adam Zuckerman and others at thefort.vc and foster.ly to facilitate entrepreneurship in the Wash. DC area!
RSVP and COME TO THE 3rd Sunday event and EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED! (This event is not limited to web developers.)
The first step is to get to know each other better to see if we are ready to work together harmoniously with appreciation, forgiveness and understanding. These monthly community events provide opportunities to develop more allies for the project and to connect with others interested in similar topics. Express your interest to the co-organizers and followup to build goodwill and mutual trust.
WHEN: 12:30PM TO 2:30PM on the third Sundays of each month. Followup small meeting for new volunteers on the 4th Sunday 3pm at a different venue (at the Capital Professional Center, 2423 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, DC 20037 first floor conference room).
These free monthly get-togethers help you to practice networking social skills, learn about resources and meet people who may turn out to be valuable to your career as references, investors, referrals, business mentors, success coaches, future clients, co-founders, partners etc. They are blessings if you keep a happy attitude and demonstrate your interest, attractive personal qualities and appreciation for building trust, communications and long term working relationships so you will be invited to participate in new projects.
A good way to diversify if you would contribute some time to volunteer to serve on the Allies Team or Organizing Team who are all volunteers. The co-organizers of this group are looking for prospective web developers interested in participation and sharing tasks and profits on new projects. Some may be invited to serve as "co-founders" at the perfect time. Some of the social entrepreneurial co-sponsors are sharing very valuable expertise and practical experience building successful projects. Not only have they revealed the best tools, websites, resources that they have used in their successful business, they save students so much time, in pointing them in the right direction. Co-organizers hope to work with other web and IT professionals interested in realizing their potential, willing to learn and share personal, business and web development expertise.
Don't let your past stop you from moving ahead to become ALL you can be as social entrepreneurs/stakeholders....As you take the initiative to learn about and bridge the gap of understanding where investors, business owners, industry leaders, professionals and your prospective clients are coming from, what they want and why, you increase your value to them as a web developer or member of the development team because you understand their business, their industry, your attitude, your communications skills are what clients are looking for. Your happy presence also demonstrate your marketing readiness and suitable qualifications for working with your prospective clients. See message board for details. Thanks for your interest in collaborating and serving your community! Please RSVP for this group and we look forward to see you at these 3rd Sunday 12:30pm to 2:30pm for social and business networking events! If you reserve your 3rd and 4th Sundays of each month for new contacts, you'll end up with many more mutually supportive relationships to enrich your life and business.
