Yesterday, I attended Sandy Lawrence’s Bistro Collaborative along with at least 12 other people including: Marian Smith – marketing veteran; Kumar Kandasami – software developer; Tanya Robertson – makeup artist; Jerry Scribner – real estate investor and wealth guru; Charles Bigham – social media consultant; Vannessa Wade – PR consultant; Janet Braun – financial advisor; Danielle Forget – author; Katrina Burkhalter – virtual assistant; Wes – insurance agent; and of course, Sandy Lawrence – founder of the DIY Marketing Boot Camp.
The range of professions, interests and expertise these individuals represent is amazing. It’s such a pleasure to experience the flow of ideas, energy and genuine eagerness to help. With this amount of talent in the room, brainstorming never had it so good. Every time we meet, every attendee goes away with new ideas, new contacts, new resources and new inspiration they can use immediately to boost their businesses and projects.
Artists – This type of group may sound like it’s just for business people. Not so.
If you aren’t in a business network or brainstorming group, look for one or start your own. Four key ingredients:
You’re invited to the next meeting of the Bistro Collaborative, Monday, August 23, 11AM-1PM, coffee shop, upstairs in Kroger’s, Westpark at Buffalo Speedway, Houston.
If you’re in a great brainstorming or networking group, please share your suggestions and results in a comment.
Happy creating – Linda
