What we're about

Hello and welcome to the group!

We do many online events for now, as long as the Corona Virus situation continues. We do this as a service to all of you who are stuck at home with no other recourse for business networking and for leading edge business education.

This Meetup group is a part of a large network of Meetup groups devoted to and comprised of Best Practices with Marketing Strategies.

Organic (online, offline, or live in person) and a resource for creating and maintaining quality business relationships and connections.

These events are organized by:

Julie Parker, Speaker, coach, & consultant,

Local Houston Meetup organizer with over 10,000 members and multiple Meetup groups in the greater Houston Area.

Unlike other networking communities, we are dedicated to helping you to generate collaborative partnerships and find customers through our generous members. We are up to fostering a spirit of generosity and partnership where people come to our events and find it to be a good use of their time.

We provide high quality training and networking events that are well organized to optimize your networking experience.

Our mission is to support our community in networking to expand and increase their business.

Not getting the results you're looking for during networking events (online or in person), or does the concept intimidate you or leave you feeling awkward? Learn to be magnetic, effective, and confident when meeting and connecting with new people. Discover ways to create quality professional relationships and keep them going long-term. Want to learn more?

Book a free discovery call with me to see what that would look like. (http://bit.ly/JulieNDC40)
