What we're about

Hello and welcome to the group!

We are holding all events online for now, as long as the Corona Virus situation continues. This is provided as a service to all of our members 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), this is an additional resource for creating and maintaining quality business relationships and connections. Our goal is to help elevate the ability to generate more quality business leads.

This is a community for people who are in the sales profession, entrepreneurs, startup owners, solo-preneurs or have their own businesses who are looking for support and coaching from peers and experts in sales and business – we specifically focus on the art and science of earning trust and rapport with the people or prospects that we meet in the process of doing sales. Without rapport or trust, it is difficult or unwieldy to perform sales effectively.

At each event or meeting, in addition to networking, we will have an opportunity to learn new techniques to build trust and rapport online and in person.

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

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.
