What we're about

Passive Income, Affiliate Marketing, Drop Shipping, Internet Startups, Apps & Software as a Service, Information Products, Social Media Influencing, Blogging, E-commerce Websites, etc. If you are trying to make the majority of your money online, and you work for yourself (or are at least trying to) you might have a good time getting together with us. Our meetups are casual, informative, interesting, and to me at least, a super motivating break from my home office day to day existence.

WELCOME and PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT A NETWORKING GROUP

We're friendly and enjoy meeting new members so don't be shy if you haven't been before. We get together every 4-5 weeks mid-morning weekdays as an escape from our laptops and to see what other online business owners are doing. We talk about our businesses and new business ideas as well as troubleshoot problems and hurdles. Some people come to talk about their up and running business, others are still feeling their way towards their big idea. No need to come to every meeting, just drop in when you can for coffee and some excellent passive income tips and conversation.

YOU ARE A GOOD FIT

If you are already earning, or focused on trying to earn, most of your income ONLINE via Internet marketing, passive and other online income generating strategies.

-You 100% own your existing online venture, or at least have that goal as your primary focus.
-You understand that you will not be able to market to our members or recruit them as clients.
-Your interests are information products, affiliate marketing, social media, ad buying, software as a service, authority sites, drop shipping, membership sites, social media, and other online income pursuits.
-You've done quite a bit of work or research on your own, but you'd love to spend time with people who are working on the same stuff and hear new ideas.
-You'd enjoy a mostly agenda-free, round-table dynamic where we toss around ideas and news about our projects, and talk, talk, talk.
-You are willing to supply a current image in your profile; we're sharing our business details, you have to share your face ;)

YOU'RE NOT A GOOD FIT

If you fall into any of these camps...

-You don't 100% own your idea or business and/or aren't representing yourself but in fact a larger or non-100% owned entity.
-You hope to add our members to a referral network, your sales funnel, or pursue any other way of earning from them or converting them to clients except in the entirely organic way that occurs over time from knowing each other. For example; one member reaching out and asking another to do a bit of freelance Wordpress work is completely fine, but offering members free assessments, consultations, or services is not.
-You are a service business or consultant that serves online business owners like Internet marketers, e-commerce companies, bloggers, etc. which creates a conflict of interest in that our members closely match your client profile.
-You are a franchisee or licensee of someone else's business, a traditional brick & mortar retail or service business owner, an independent/direct seller like Amway/Avon/Herbalife, or a multi-level marketer.

CoWork / Chat / Coffee (Bring Your Laptop)

Whole Foods Market

Let's get together at Whole Foods 55 and work on our laptops, chat, and have coffee. We call this a "Jelly" and have been doing it in small groups for 7 years but now it's going to be one of our regular (sort of) meetups. It's super fun and casual and really just coworking but a bit more social. BRING YOUR LAPTOP if that's what you work on. And it's a good idea to plan one business-related task or project you want to check off your list. We just hang out and keyboard away. Working in a group (but each our own projects) helps us be motivated to get something done. What I Plan to Accomplish That Day: Hoping to rough out a newsletter template. More About Jelly and Where I Got the Idea: https://vimeo.com/246107 NEW VENUE: The new Whole Foods on 55 in Cary is an excellent place to work. All the goodies they offer PLUS it's a LaFarm location so fantastic Counter Culture Coffee and baked goods too. ---------------------------- --------------------------- ------------------------- NEWCOMER TIPS: First of all...Welcome! Please read our guidelines before attending: https://www.meetup.com/Internet-Biz-Owners/ We are biz owners who get together to share what we're working on and talk about passive and online income ideas. You'll hear lots of great stuff and everyone just kind of talks all over the place topic-wise. It's fun, and random, and super interesting. Take a break from working by yourself, and drop in for a cup of coffee and some good conversation.
