What we're about

Our mission is to help you reach your goals by connecting you to the resources and people who will help you get there. We're about LEARNING, NETWORKING, having FUN along the way, and we'd love to meet YOU!

Our goal is to create a cool community of giving, passionate, helpful, and fun professionals.

If you're an entrepreneur, small business owner, someone between opportunities, or someone simply interested in meeting new people and building a professional network, this MeetUp group is for YOU!

FIRST: We believe in the Pay it Forward networking philosophy, where our members commit to first helping others in the group, before expecting anything in return.

SECOND: We follow the teachings of several great leaders, including Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, John Maxwell, Harvey MacKay, Jeffrey Gitomer, Dr. Ivan Misner, and others.

THIRD: We believe that when YOU have the DESIRE, GOAL, and COMMITMENT to help and to succeed, by plugging into this group you will have more opportunity and success than you can imagine!

FOURTH: We LOVE MeetUp, and the concept of MeetUp: "Use the internet to get off the internet." We know that in-person, face to face interactions with people are the ONLY way to build strong professional and personal relationships. MeetUp is INCREDIBLE, in that you meet great, interesting, nice, helpful people who you would NEVER otherwise cross paths with.

We have a full schedule of great MeetUps in multiple formats, so there is opportunity for all interests, and all schedules.

WHAT THIS NETWORKING GROUP IS NOT: This is not a place where you come to our MeetUps and expect to SELL your product, service, or business opportunity to fellow members. While other members DO need to know what you do, PLEASE approach members in the INFORMATIONAL mode, not the SELLING mode. That is the quickest way to blow a potential relationship, and is incredibly short-sighted.

We are a FUN, ENERGETIC, and WELCOMING group. We work very hard to make everyone feel welcome. We know it can be way out of your comfort zone to come to an event with a bunch of strangers. I encourage you to make our events part of your Networking routine. You will meet some GREAT professional folks, and really be glad you did!

We understand that it can be stressful to take that first step to meet new people. Our Tuesday morning events are designed to be like entering in to the shallow end of the networking pool. This thing called networking is trickier than it seems at first look. It is a lot more than joining a group, attending a few events, handing out a few business cards, and then waiting for thins to happen. At Connectors Club events, we meet you where you are, and help you take your own personal journey of next steps to: --Strengthen existing relationships. --Rekindle old relationships. --Create exciting and interesting NEW relationships.

MasterMind Group MeetUp

Clueless Escape Rooms

EVERYONE should participate in a MasterMind Group. Whether you choose to become part of our group or not, please join or start one and allow the power of the MasterMind to help power your professional growth. The Master Mind concept has been part of the Connectors Club for many years. The Master Mind is Peer to Peer Mentoring, and is a powerful vehicle to help you clarify and reach your goals when you give it the opportunity. The idea of gathering together with fellow professionals with differing experiences and differing points of view will help you in ways you don't know until it happens. We're moving forward with MasterMind events on the SECOND and FOURTH Fridays of each month. The MasterMind concept harnesses the collective minds of our members to help YOU. This MeetUp comes on the heels of our recent Wheel of Life exercise, and we hope you will join us for a fun, educational, and productive session. This Master Mind Session is for you if you: -Have been a part of our previous MasterMinds and have received value. Time to check in, update, and keep moving forward. --Have always wanted to participate in a MasterMind before, but haven't had the right opportunity. --Don't know what a Master Mind is, but are open to new ways of Personal Development. --Are in career transition, and exploring. --Wand to meet some awesome local professionals who you would not otherwise cross paths with, and who will help you unconditionally. --Are a fan and attendee at other Connectors Club events. --Have joined Connectors Club online, but have not attended an event in person. I promise you this session will be time well spent. I've hosted several of these events over the years, and have chosen the elements that work best to include in this fun, educational, and interactive event. We will challenge you to create a few SMART goals, strategies to achieve them, a support system to achieve them, and create a mechanism whereby the only way you will fail is if you quit. Please RSVP as space is limited. We hope you will join us, and look forward to seeing you there.
