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 four 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 over 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 had Martin Crenshaw a motivational speaker one month, and so far I have to admit my favorite has been Fred West. I am grateful for the 40 speakers or more who have taken the time to talk to us. A lot of connections and alliances have been created thanks to the group. This will be our 44th meeting.
Devie Robertson of Roberson Global has helped me 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 was the celebration of our 4th year. Would you believe that I couldn't make it? Everyone I spoke with said they had a great time, and it was wonderful seeing people out of their business personas. The Tidewater Entrepreneur is a group of business owners, entrepreneurs and sales people in the Hampton Roads area. 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.
