I’m quoting myself, how egotistical is that?
I really enjoyed speaking to the Tigard B2B group yesterday, and what a turnout! Half of the people there were from other ITTL groups and came out to hear my topic “Effective Internet Marketing You Can Do Yourself for Free!” and the other half came from the post on Meetup.com (if you were there feel free to leave a comment here and on Meetup)… I think we hopefully gained one or two new members to I Take The Lead, specifically one in the Lake Oswego B2B I attend on Mondays, Mr. Church that does OSHA Compliance Programs. Additionally, Honeymoon and Jerry joined us all the way from Denver’s I Take The Lead franchise and contributed greatly to the conversation.I Take The Lead Members that were there included: Me, Tom Cochrane, Peter Grote, Jodi Colbert, Norm Baker, Stephanie (Owner of Sezchuan Kitchen), Lisa Lynne, Michael Neuman, Neil Robbins, and our superstar Becky Tengwall herself! Thanks to everybody for coming out and showing support! As promised I did post a lengthy article with the details of the conversation, again on Free Effective Internet Marketing that you can do yourself over on my blog dedicated to supporting I Take The Lead members, Locally-Social.com. I took some time to add email and RSS subscription buttons as well as links to my Linked In, Twitter and Facebook Profiles. Please take a few minutes, visit, comment, and add me to your social networks!One thing I have to mention is that the ClubSport Conference Room is a perfect place for a large meeting… and the restaraunt is great for a smaller one. Good food and really amazing layout and ammenities. I think that particular meeting can use some growth, so if you’re looking for a second group, this is one to consider as it is also right off I5 and here are the details:Tigard B2B – Friday NoonClubSport Conference Room18120 SW Lower Boones Ferry RdTigard OR 97224 So back to the topic at hand, and I’m going to quote myself again :)… I left a lengthy comment on a Biznik article and it was worth bringing around again. If you’re not sure about networking, look at it this way:
A business luncheon should be a retreat from the grind, an escapade of ideas, and an accolade of success stories!”
As far as leads groups go, I think: You have to eat lunch anyway! Let it be fun, productive and an opportunity to spread the same kind of energy and business reciprocity we want to receive.”
