What we're about

Create your great story, turn that story into great connections, and turn great connections into relationships and sales.

--------

We are a professional networking group, created to provide networking opportunities AND help each other become remarkable networkers...having fun while quickly and easily sorting networking contacts into the best follow-ups for you and them.

We work with The BIG Story Formula meetup to help turn what you do into the powerful and passionate stories that define you, capture attention when we are networking, and grow contacts.

We also work with the SalesSD meetup to help turn the great networking connections into sales by bringing people fully prepared to the right decision points and helping them make the decisions that they would have made anyway had they had been fully prepared.
