Hey you fun, sexy, smart people... It's been a while!

This is a brand meet up event with fun rounds of professional and social interaction practices (with coaching and feedback) -- pitching to VCs, job interview, asking for a raise, dating, etc. We will pick and practice relevant scenarios depending on the needs and wants of participants who sign up (

So... What is a State Management Practice (SMP)?

SMP is a simulation of real situations that you're likely to be involved in near future – a type of social interactions that causes you stress or anxiety (challenging states). With practice and right coaching, SMP can help you dramatically improve your state and performance during actual situations.

For example, let's take dating. Maybe you haven’t dated for a while and your courting skills are a bit rusty; maybe your dates haven't turned out too well recently and you’d like to find out why; or maybe you just want to overcome your nervousness on first dates. Here, you can get some dating practice and expert coaching and feedback!

“Tomorrow’s victory is today’s practice.” ― Chris Bradford, ‘The Way of the Warrior’

Another challenging type of social interaction for many people is when they have to ask for a raise or a promotion. If you knew how to calibrate the situation and interaction to maximize your opportunity, wouldn't that be incredibly valuable? I once helped a friend get a $20K raise with just 15 minutes of coaching and 30 minutes of practice! Previously he wasn't getting anywhere with his request, so he considered those 45 minutes the best investment he ever made!

What we will do:

Skills training, Role plays, Practice, Group discussions, Group and Individual Coaching ...and have lots of FUN!

Sign-up is limited (this event will announced in several other meetup groups), so HURRY to reserve your space!
