Extensive Strategic Networking - Your Next Big Thing: Creating the Life You Love

***Location is tentative and may be changed to another location around Oakbrook area***



Dear Really Nice People,

Greetings! We have had successful meetings in the past two months, and will continue doing this on a monthly basis for our members!

Networking only pays off if you CONSISTENTLY attend the same group meetings and get yourself acquainted in front of people. When people see your face repeatedly and as they know you more and more over a period of time, they will then be more willing to refer businesses to you. People make mistakes thinking they come to networking events to find their clients among these people whom he passes business cards to, but in reality networking only brings in real results after at least SIX MONTHS of continuous effort and attendance. Business mostly happens AFTER the foundation of trust is established. Therefore, we introduce this new format to help our Really Nice People form stronger, lasting business relationships more quickly and easily.

The main theme of the Extensive Strategic Networking is "To Give Before I Receive. To Share Because I Care."

Please BRING BUSINESS CARDS as it is an important part of this structure.

09:30AM Open Networking & Coffee/Breakfast Time
Get yourself acquainted with your fellow networking RNPs and get a cup of coffee or a McMuffin from downstairs. Nothing connects people more easily than over some food and coffee.

10:00AM Individual Story-Telling (2-minute)
We call it story-telling because people remember who you are more easily if you engrain a little story in your introduction. Something that makes you stand out and makes people want to support you and your business. We will have a 2-minute format to help with your story-telling.

11:00AM Our Two-Cents
Every business and/or individual faces challenges from time to time. To Give Before You Receive. To Share Means You Care. This is a perfect opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise with others, gain some ideas from others' experiences, and brainstorm with a group of intelligence from a variety of backgrounds.     

11:15AM Elite Guest Speaker/Workshop or Business Showcase
Each week we either have an elite speaker that gives us a coaching session or a mini workshop, or a business individual from the group who attended last meeting, whose business card was drawn out at the end of the meeting.

12:00PM Q&A, Testimonials, Announcements, Next Event Updates & Wrap-Up!

Your Next Big Thing: Creating the Life You Love

There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Nelson Mandela

Most people operate out of one of two orientations in life: managing givens or creating possibilities.

Are you simply MANAGING the givens of your life -- the roles you play, obligations you have to meet, rules you follow, income you earn, and expectations you have to live up to? We've all certainly got responsibilities we need to manage.  But the vision is limited. You often spend your time running in place, burning out, or putting bandaids on things that just don't work.

Or are you CREATING your life? Are you focusing on possibilities you envision and creating a deeply satisfying life that aligns with your heart? Are you settling for givens or creating possibility?

In this interactive workshop Strategic Life Coach Dan Lewis presents a five-step road map to stepping outside the box and creating the deeply satisfying life you truly love.

Engaging your mind, heart, imagination, hands, and relationships, you’ll learn how to shift to being the creator of your life and business.

Five steps to creating the life you love:

1. Shift your frame from managing givens to creating abundance. (mind)

2. Connect with your spark.

3. Expand your Vision. 

4. Tackle your Next Big Thing. 

5. Recruit your team.

For any questions about this event, please contact the facilitator, Peggy, at[masked]-5714. Due to the constraint of the location, seating for this meeting is limited to 20. Please RSVP as soon as possible to secure your seats. Looking forward to seeing all of you!
