Are you one of Calgary's thousands of unemployed, looking for meaningful work? Are you about to become unemployed, either because you want to leave or because of layoffs? Or have you just started a business and you're still trying to figure out what to do with it? With so many talented people looking for something to do, I created this group to mutually support each other in creating meaningful work for ourselves. Because big business isn't going to do it for us. I am not a business coach - there are already lots of those around. I'm not here to help you brush up your resume and interview skills - there are other groups for that. And I'm not a network marketer or looking for MLM's - those don't work for me, and tend to annoy people more than help them. I created this group for those in the gap, who know they want to do something different, but could use a little support in sorting that out. It could result in some of us starting a new business together. It could result in mutual support in the job search, or in expanding a business. It could result in a new community-building non-profit or co-operative. I don't have a specific end-point in mind, just some ideas to bounce off you and see if they work for you. Mainly what I want to do is bring people together for mutual support in finding or creating meaningful work where we can express our talents, do interesting things, and meet interesting challenges. This is about working together to put something NEW together, to build new networks, new connections, and stronger communities. Whatever it is, it's time to get out there and do something!
