True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Monterey, CA

True Colors Queer Women's Meetup Monterey Bay

Welcome! This group is for all queer women. If you self-identify as a queer woman, this group is for you :) 🏳️‍🌈 

As the Admin and Organizer of this group, one of my primary objectives is to create well-defined boundaries so that the members of this community feel safe. With this in mind, you are welcome to become a member of True Colors if you are a lesbian, bi female, or an MTF trans lesbian. 

Established mid-October of 2020, this social club offers adult (18+ years of age) women, of all colors, single & partnered, an opportunity to create new and meaningful friendships and participate in common interest activities in the Monterey Bay Area.

Activities, adventures, and events will include but are not limited to hiking, biking, walking, running, kayaking, ropes courses, ziplining, backpacking, camping, frisbee in the park, book clubs, photography, coffee and tea, breaking bread, pub nights, farmer's market meetups, dancing, escape rooms, board and dice games, cards, tours, concerts, movies, parties, BBQs, trips, travel, whitewater rafting/tubing, skiing/snowboarding. The sky is the limit!

On average we offer about five meetups each month, usually one meetup per weekend, and then an occasional meetup on a weeknight. Often our weekend meetups are short local hikes or coffee & pastry get-togethers although occasionally we turn it up a notch and run a bigger, less local meetup such as whale watching, kayaking, or an e-bike ride. Our weeknight events have been brewery meetups so far, while we do have a full moon hike coming up in July and we'll add monthly Twilight Cycling at Laguna Seca when they get up and running again. 

We primarily hold our meetups in the greater Monterey Bay (Monterey, Carmel, Pacific Grove, Marina, Seaside, Salinas, Santa Cruz). We've talked about putting together trips to Guerneville and the Mendocino area this coming summer or fall. 

Everyone will be given a warm welcome. An ethos/culture of mutual respect, courtesy, warmth, dignity, 'positivity', and inclusivity for all members is expected. We endeavor to create an environment where members can feel confident, comfortable, and happy being their true selves. Our group vibe is warm, friendly, welcoming, inclusive, casual, and social. 

Feel free to suggest any ideas you have for events; your ideas are always welcome ;) After coming to a few events, you will likely also have the opportunity to become an Event Organizer and host events, if you wish. 

This Club is non-commercial/non-profit. Membership is free.

Please add a profile photo before applying to join our group. 

Note: Unless otherwise stated, True Color events are for queer adult women only. Just to be super clear, no pets, kids, or allies are invited to attend unless specified for a one-off event. If specified, the event will clearly state "+ dogs" or "allies welcome" in the event title or near the top of the post.

Culinary Adventure Club: San Diego

San Diego, CA

Culinary Adventure Club: San Diego

Are you ready to meet true foodies in San Diego with a genuine passion and interest in all things FOOD? Do you search out specialty ingredients, follow the comings and goings of local restaurants and specialty shops? Do you constantly try new foods and travel the world by what’s on your plate? If you like to tempt your palate with rare and delicious culinary items, then, the Culinary Adventure Club may be just what you've been waiting for!

The Culinary Adventure Club: San Diego (CACSD), will aim to gather foodies for: 1) Dinner Parties / Cooking / Wine Tasting events, 2) exploration of local specialties with Culinary Field Trips, where we’ll taste test new foods together or try to find the “best of” in our area, 3) Social Events, such as wine and cheese, dining out, etc., 4) we may attend Cooking Classes together or Street Fairs / Festivals / community Taste Of's, and 5) we may meet at Farmer's Markets or ethnic markets to in search of particular ingredients. These activities will add to your "foodie knowledge" and will be great fun shared with your new like-minded foodie friends! How would you like to try a new cheese shop, an olive oil store, charcuterie, or explore a food item (might be as simple as tamales or cupcakes, etc.) to find the best our region has to offer? I have lots of ideas for places to explore… maybe you want to share your ideas or favorites too?

Our group will feature small dinner parties with various themes. We'll cook from our favorite cookbooks, gourmet magazines in order to create a cohesive meal that inspires us. I have at least 100 cookbooks and many gourmet magazines in my collection and would like to get re-inspired and put them to greater use - with all of you! Our small group events will allow each member to have an active role in making each event a success! We'll stay small on purpose with average attendance at events from 4 to 10 people. We will plan our menus together and the focus at each event will be on a certain type of food or cuisine. Everyone will be involved in the hands-on cooking and be rewarded with a shared dinner party around a convivial table, gaining new friends with similar interests in the process! We'll aim to keep things simple with manageable menus in order to best enjoy our efforts! Like America's Test Kitchen, we may even just focus on one ingredient or type of dish and try to perfect it. And, we'll do our own taste testing in San Diego!

You don't have to be an expert, but, this group is not for brand new cooks and this is not a potluck kind of group. As long as you have adventurous taste buds (few restrictions) and are willing to learn with a desire to delve deeper into understanding certain flavors, cuisines or techniques, this group is for you!

So, if there is no where you’d rather be than spending an afternoon simmering sauce or baking bread, etc. all while developing lasting friendships, then, please join us for the next meet up, the Culinary Adventure Club is for you!

Influence Others

San Francisco, CA

Influence Others

Here's the one explicit reason why it pays to join Influence Others:

You Gain by Understanding Your Brain

And this is a great time to jump aboard because:

More has been discovered about the human brain in the last ten years than in ALL of human history.

But those advances also present founding teams with an unavoidable  stark choice:

[Learn, Adapt, Profit] OR [Fall Fatally Behind]

SUMMARY

It turns out many neuroscience findings are not only fascinating, but readily applicable to the two distinct skill sets crucial for every startup team’s success in the commercial marketplace:

·  Mechanics of communicating with confidence, conviction and credibility

·  Traction – the triumvirate of attracting, acquiring and retaining customers

The Influence Others meetup filters those recent discoveries, presenting the ones pertinent to the sales and marketing challenges startups typically face.

By attending you'll gain from better understanding how the brain’s decision making actually machinery works.

Specifically, you’ll learn to take advantage of what science teaches is the optimal approach to communicating persuasively and you'll pick up several immediately useful science-based tips on earning market traction. 

DETAILS

Imagine if you could offer your product to customers or to pitch your company to investors so they, on their own accord and before you spoke your first word, were influenced to buy into your vision because of techniques you used; and equally important, because of those you avoided.

That astounding claim is true because the anatomically modern human brain is hard-wired by millions of years of evolution to scan for certain signals it much prefers over others. Such built-in biases are among the recent discoveries about how we influence each other.

Indeed, with multiple disciplines focusing simultaneously on the human brain, more has been discovered about that singular organ in the last decade than in ALL previous history.

As a result, we’re in a propitious position of witnessing the birth of a radically counter-intuitive model of how neural processes motivate our behavior, both as individuals and in groups.

Taking insights from such well-regarded books as Thinking, Fast and Slow (Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman), Influence: Science and Practice (Robert B. Cialdini), and Start with Why (Simon Sinek), the sessions apply those findings to typical communication challenges entrepreneurs face such as:

·  Explaining the startup’s business model so it interests investors and attracts team members

·  Designing marketing material and a home page that encourages engagement

By joining Influence Others you’ll learn that influencing others is no longer the art it was for centuries, but instead persuasion is emerging as a science, making it a skill you can readily acquire.

Even more, the fastest way to come up to speed on is to volunteer in the meetup and help prepare the next session. If that's interesting to you, then contact Nathan Schor 305.632.1368 nathan@rcsm.io .

Instructor – After graduating Boston College (Summa Cum Laude in Philosophy and Psychology) Nathan Schor began his IT career as a database programmer. Preferring conversation over code, he evolved into sales, accumulating over three decades of experience, including deploying CRM applications in hundreds of businesses across a wide range of sizes and sectors. 

About ten years ago he stated noticing more and more discoveries in neural science having a direct bearing on influencing people. Tracking those breakthroughs, he found several of them useful in improving his own technique. He created the Influence Others meetup to chronicle those findings and share his insights.

Encouraged by the positive reviews the sessions earned, Nathan founded the Resource Center for Scientific Marketing to expose a wider audience the discoveries coming out of neural science labs applicable to the sales and marketing challenges startup teams face.
