Every second Saturday of the month a group of 18 to 30 Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurs wannabes gather together at "El Desorden" a Colombian restaurant to learn about business, to network and have a great breakfast.
I started this group three years ago because I couldn't join a BNI group. The first year we had any where from 4 to 9 people show up, but for the past two years we have had a consistent group of close to 20 entrepreneurs give or take come to the meetings. We have a few regulars, but mainly we get different business owners come join us every month. I have had the opportunity to make some great contacts. We have learned about Franchises, taxes, personal image, Internet networking, resources to build your business and the list goes on and on. We even had Martin Crenshaw a motivational speaker one month. A lot of connections and alliances have been created thanks to the group. This will be our 38th meeting.
Devie Robertson of Roberson Global has helped organize and run the gatherings for the past year. He does a great job, and adds his own flair to the meetings. Last month we had one of the best meetings we have had, as it became more of a forum with everyone adding their own experiences with the subject at hand , and that is how I ended up becoming the speaker for this month. "Learn how to blog a beginners guide". A year ago, I would not have ever dreamed that I would be consider an expert, but after blogging all these months, it appears that I do know more about it than most every one in the group. I have to admit that I am very nervous, as I get stage fright, and I am still learning about blogging. Thanks to all the experienced bloggers in Activerain, I will share the joy of blogging to my fellow business owners. The Tidewater Entrepreneur is a group of business owners in the Hampton Roads area, and I am the only real estate agent. We have all kind of businesses represented in the group. If you are looking for a different place to learn about business, and network in a very relaxed atmosphere come join us at "El Desorden" in Virginia Beach.
