What we're about

Our group is for Young Professionals that are first and foremost looking to meet new friends in Pinellas County. You may also find that this group works well to network with your new friends for business however that is secondary. This group isn’t for everyone…

We are focused on attracting positive Young Professionals from ages 21-49 simply because we know that it is many times easier to relate to people in our own generation.

Our experience is connecting 1000s of people with a strong track record. Chris and Ryan started the Pinellas County Meetup Group in 2015 and have been constantly re-evaluating how to create a stronger and more personal network.

10 things you can expect when you join our group -

1. You are becoming part of a community of people where you can thrive - making things happen and living life to the fullest.

2. Connecting with others will be easy as we are happy to introduce you to others so that you feel welcome.

3. Experience the best of Pinellas County with fun events that appeal to the young professional demographic - Charity drives, Social Brunches, Concerts, Private Tours, Team Sports, Boat Outings, Wine Mixers, Speed dating, Fitness Meetups, Pub Crawls, and much more!

4. An environment where a really close group of people have the time of their lives! We encourage each other to succeed both personally and professionally. Whether you are single, a couple, or you even become a couple when part of this group, you’ll fit right in!

5. Networking potential as opportunities open up with the more people you get to know. Part of our job is to network and through our experience we have realized how rewarding it is to see people build business connections and lasting friendships.

6. A judgement free zone… with no tolerance for drama or making people feel uncomfortable.

We make it a point to be inclusive of all members and encourage our members to share these same values. We reserve the right to remove any member at our discretion.

7. Great perks… as our group grows in size we are able to use that to our advantage with local businesses offering perks, discounts and freebies. Want to help us succeed? Invite your friends!

8. Perfect for both people new in town and natives alike, we have an appetite for exploring and creating new experiences for our group. As real estate professionals, we have the leverage to manage a group like this successfully and be your local community experts.

9. An opportunity to grow and be a leader among young professionals. We are always looking for event organizers that have ideas they want to put into action. We give our members a platform via a private FB group where ideas are shared and experiences are created.

10. After creating a meetup group that still runs strong today with over 2700 members, our mission is to take this group to the next level. Help us grow the best social group for Young Professionals in the 727 area code!

Bi-Weekly Self Improvement Book Club!

Online event

***This is an online event until we decide to meet, I started a group chat text to discuss the book. Comment below or shoot me a message with your number and I'll add you to the groupchat. We are still reading The Magic Of Thinking Big. During this quarantine I've been doing this challenge that involves reading 10 pages of a self improvement book everyday among other things. It's been a refreshing break from getting all my entertainment on the internet so I want to continue it, figured best way to do that is invite others to get involved. Here's my idea. I'll pick the first book. Everyone will be responsible to read the equivalent of atleast 10 pages a day. We will meet on a Wednesday every other week, most likely at a bar or restaurant that has a quiet area and some awesome wine Wednesday or food specials. I'll also ask that you read with the intention of writing down the things that resonate with you. Doesn't have to be extensive, maybe just 2-3 things you can bring up when we meet to keep the conversation going. I'd also like you to write down at least 1 thing that you don't agree with so we can get some different perspectives. Maybe even make a note on something that you don't understand 100% and want to hear others opinions on. When we meet I'll help facilitate the conversation and make sure everyone has a chance to say their part but I think it would be fun just to have people together who are looking to improve themselves, we don't have to talk about the book for two hours. We can learn about each others goals and hopefully even help each other out. I was thinking about adding a groupchat so we could discuss the book as we're reading it but let's have our actual meetup first to see who is serious about finishing the book and go from there. The first book is a staple in the self improvement book community - The Magic Of Thinking Big by David J. Schwartz. It's a pretty easy read at just over 300 pages and larger print. Should take us a month so we will meet to discuss the middle of the book and then when we finish. Here's where you can find the book on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/1785042432/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1
