- March meet & greet, drinks provided
Ladies and gentlemen, It's almost Q2 and we haven't met in 2013 yet. Time to remedy that. I hope everyone's making progress with their muses, microbusinesses, and money-making side projects. I for one quit my day job... but we'll save that story for the evening. 6:00 People start showing up 6:30 "15 seconds of microfame"-- everyone can announce who they are, what they're working on, and why they're here; 15 seconds each 7:30 Disperse, potentially to area restaurants to continue the conversation For those of you who did not get WDS 2013 tickets, I'll be talking about a secret plan I have... Five bucks with RSVP to cover drinks and prevent no-shows. 30 people max, so grab a spot now.

- New member meet-and-greet potluck
First event-- let's all bring some food to my (Erik's) place and a.) eat it and b.) discuss the following sorts of things: What muse/freedom business/microbusiness have you started or hope to start? (We can also decide on a name for what to call these things) If you already own a small business, where do you want to see it go? If you don't, what's holding you back or what are you waiting for? What do you want to get out of this group? What events do you want to see?
