This is a meetup group designed to help us consistently apply what we learn from reading business and self-development books.

We have no formal structure; it's just a group of people who get together to talk. No official agenda, no rules (other than common sense) and no restrictions on who can join. The only common thread is a shared desire for meaningful conversation. If you can relate to any or all of the following, this group may be for you: • Do you often meet people and feel a desire to stay connected, but have a hard time finding an effective way to keep in touch? • Do you find "small talk" draining or annoying? • Do you find it hard to understand the appeal of cocktail parties, networking events, nightclubs and other large gatherings filled with superficial chatter? • Do you process conversations for hours, days, weeks or even years after the fact? • Do you sometimes want to be included in conversations but have a difficult time finding a place to jump in? • Do you often wish you had an easier way to meet new friends with something in common? • Do you tend to write long emails or express yourself most effectively in writing? There are three principles to keep in mind in this group: Be inclusive. Make an effort to involve everyone in the conversation. If you see someone who looks like the “odd person out,” make an effort to get to know them. Be interesting. Get to know the other people, listen to them and talk about something that everyone wants to talk about. Make an impact. Let’s all make an effort to talk about the things we’re up to in the world and how we can help each other solve problems. We will hold Meetups in various Triangle locations at different times of the day and week. If you crave authentic connection with real people, join this group and jump in!
