    This was my first time, and I really enjoyed it. I was great to be around so many like-minded people. Special thanks to Ms. Crawford fro letting me pick her brain - I really learned a lot.

    This morning there was a room full of government resources, funding sources and a lot or experience. Sorry to those that were not able to make it we have since eaten all of the leftovers but no worries we'll do it again next month April 24th. Congrats to Eric McNeely for winning the Panera gift card with Mark's new mobile marketing tool (I want one for sure)

    Hi everyone. I really look forward to hearing more from this group. I'm really sorry to have missed this morning's meeting. We had one of our vehicles getting worked on this morning and therefore only my husband was able to visit a BNI early this morning. He really enjoyed the group of professionals. I know you are affiliated. Chris Gilson from the Stonehenge BNI was the one who invited, Charles Coleman, of Integrated Pest Control. We have observed that since we serve in that industry and that now that Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerburg are teaming up to invest in Pest Control....for us, we are looking forward to growing and serving our clients and colleagues with excellence. Our entrepreneur spirit and collaborative nature rule and reign in our hearts so for this group, we are here to contribute whatever we can.


    Thank you for hosting!! Hope to see everyone next time!

    I was just asked a super question about this group & I wanted to share my reply with everyone.

    Q: Just wanted to get a little clarification in regards to the functionality of this group. Is this a support group for entrepreneurs or is it a networking group? A: I would say “yes,” it is a little bit of both. The purpose of the group is to connect entrepreneurs with support resources in the area. We want to help small business owners & entrepreneurs be more successful in the Region by making the business support ecosystem easier to navigate. So the intent of the group is not a traditional networking event to just exchange business cards, the primary intent is to give clarity to the availability of organizations that provide services to businesses (mostly non-profit, government, & academic resources) – and the networking that will surely occur is secondary.
