In August 2016 I created THE BOLD PROS - Toronto Central. It has been a wonderful success. Our current membership is over 100 PROS, and the average attendance at our meetings is 20 BOLD PROS.

Today, I am excited to announce the launch of THE BOLD PROS LINKUP - Toronto West to serve members in the west end of Toronto and surrounding areas.
We will hold our first LINKUP (meeting) on Tuesday, January 10th.
Here is some introductory information about our group and the agenda for our first LINKUP:
Our LINKUPS are the Live Local Arms of www.theboldpros.com, an On-Line Global health, wealth and wisdom-oriented social networking service for Seasoned Pros, and a Professional Services and Co-venture Opportunity Directory and Advice Source for professionals and the public, that is currently being created.
These LINKUPS are in-person events bring together Seasoned Professionals over the age of 50, who want to create significant new relationships.
At the events you'll meet MENSCHES who are enthusiastic about being healthy, wealthy and wise for the rest of their days, and who possess a wide range of unique experiences, ideas, and skills. Kernels of Practical Wisdom, Strategies and Inspiration are exchanged each time we meet.
We get together regularly to work on important projects, initiatives and causes. We learn about what each other does and wants to do, who we are as individuals and community members, and support and help each other reach professional, life, wealth, health and purposeful living goals.
Unlike some networking events which are poorly attended, lack structure and are populated by people with widely varying backgrounds, ages, and intentions‚ our LINKUPS are focused to help Seasoned Professionals keep going and growing in their areas of practice and interest, find co-creators, and be prosperous and vital. We bring vast life and work experience to what we do.
We are Professionals who see that the world has changed and that traditional retirement... going from full time work to full time leisure... is no longer possible, or desired, for a growing number of people. We believe that continuing to be active, to explore, contribute, and lead meaningful, healthy lives for the rest of our days makes sense.
If you are working and planning to continue to work, and want to form incredible new relationships, want clients/patients/customers, and/or are interested in creating and co-creating new ventures, and/or working on community/volunteer projects…
Or, if you are a retired professional and want to form incredible new relationships, want to be 'semi-retired', are interested in creating or co-creating new ventures, mentoring, and/or working on community/volunteer projects…
and you want to lead a healthy and meaningful life..
Then THE BOLD PROS is for you.
If this description of who we are, what we do, how we do it, and what is important to us, resonates with your needs and wants, you can find out more and join our Toronto West LINKUP Group and can attend your first month of LINKUPS at no cost. If you enjoy the experience, and want to continue, the annual membership fee is $200.
