What we're about
The Expert Authority Effect™ Association is looking to Foster Collaboration Among Metro-Detroit's Sharpest Influential Entrepreneurial Professionals.
Frankly, I want to help you "Make Stuff Happen" in the terms, of real IRL (In Real Life) LASTING long term connections, with real benefit adding value, that as a by product turn into real business deals and dollars, not a barrage of "coffee appointments" for the sole benefit of "qualifying", what a waste of time, energy, money, and life.
With today's day and age of smart phone, iPads, desktop, laptop, and supercomputers on our wrists, let's be honest, going to yet another group just to get "leads" is old school, and without a doubt NOT the highest and best use of your time.
You can spam people with email and your LinkedIn messages for pennies on the dollar, if that is your goal to merely spear chuck and "Throw mud against the wall and hope something sticks" have fun, this group is not for you, I'm not looking for "Transactional" "One and Done" "Event Hoppers" that count their success of the event by "How many business cards they got rid of"
Ask not what the group can do for you, but rather ask what you can do for the group ~ Me Are you a giver or taker? You ALWAYS, in ALL YOU DO, want to be ADDING VALUE, this group is no different.
My pledge and intent is to quite honestly help you take 2 to 12 months off the time it would take you to build a relationship with a total stranger to a point where after you've gotten to know each other, and had time to see what that other person is about, you finally can start to trust them and you can both truly benefit each other and than MAYBE you can consider "Getting some business done" very tricky to do SOLELY online with all the hackers,phisher's, bots, catfish, scammers, and straight up fakes. Best case, by the time you find the 1 in 100 and you glimmer of hope and enthusiasm is almost gone, yet a spark remains, you set the appointment and THEY'RE THE ONE ! ...but you've been disappointed so much that now YOUR WALL is up and frankly you're tired.
I get it, I am the CEO of IWDNow Marketing myself, and I am very selective of:
1) My Time
2) My Clients
3) My Relationships
*As I am sure you are (and should be)*
I want to be very aware, and respectful of your time & money, and where you are deciding to invest it.
If you want to gather information, use Google, (its faster and cheaper anyhow-heck you don't even need to type anymore just talk out loud into your phone) BUT if you realize you're the star of the show, and you're tired of feeling alone in your market because you're at the top of your game and want to make bigger things hap'n this year, have more fun in the process, but didn't know where to look...you've found the right spot.
The Expert Authority Effect™ Association was created to bridge the gap of the limitless reach of the web and social media, but how social is it when there is no human connection?
I want to give you the ability meet in real life and grow within your local community, in a safe and consistent environment, where you're comfortable and know what to expect without the fear of judgement, harassment, and wondering "Who else is in the room" and planning your escape because you "didn't know what to except" or saw someone you'd rather avoid.
I want you to know, and have an easy way to meet the other Expert's and Authorities in your area, and not feeling like you're the sharpest one in the room and that maybe your time and money would have been better spent on that next book you want to read.
Come on by so I can introduce you to some of the sharpest people I know personally, and if you so feel obliged I'd be more than happy to be introduced to the sharpest people you know.
Together we can foster collaboration, grow together, make the world a better place, have fun in the process and make your life easier and more profitable in the process.
Welcome to The Expert Authority Effect™ Association, I look forward to meeting you at our next event :)
Your friend and host,
