We are hosting another meetup Event Tuesday July 22nd from 6:30 - 9:30 at Dino's Pizza in Norwood Park located at 7004 W Higgins Ave ( http://www.dinospizzachicago.com/ ) It is about 1/4 a mile from the Norwood Blue Line and they have a private room we are going to try out
This is for all types of investors in Chicago, Naperville, Aurora, Joliet, North Shore and Suburbs. This is a networking event not sponsored by any product, service, or company. Just a group of people who want to get together, make introductions, and form business relationships.
We had a really big group last time - which was fantastic - but it was almost too many people to meet everyone you wanted to meet, so we are going to do something a little different this time. I am asking everyone (not required of course) to email me at [email protected] a short description of themselves and what they are looking for. Keep it to 2 sentences please. What I will then do the day before the event is email out the list of people and descriptions so that at the event you will already have an idea of who you want to talk to. We are going to try this out and see if it works.
Hey brie I just saw this and I was actually forming my email to you lol. You know i'll be there can't wait!
Thanks for the heads up @Brie Schmidt. Can I also suggest name tags? :-)
Brie, that week is a busy one for me because I will be out of town Thursday of that week...so I might not be able to attend.
If I can't make it this month, I will definitely be there next month.
But for those of you who have not attended it, I strongly recommend it. I met several buyers and great BPers there last time I attended it.
No plans I can think of - I'm there.
Awesome! The June meetup was my first one and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to meeting more people. Thanks @Brie Schmidt
@Ana N. - Yes, we did name tags the last one. Also thinking of doing some color coding system. Something like:
I am looking to buy property
I am looking to sell property
I am looking for financing
I am looking for partners
@George Foster and I are playing around with it right now but ideas are welcome
@Wendell De Guzman - Totally understand. If we don't see you at this one we will see you at the next one
@Timothy Riley - You sound pumped! LOL
@Derek Martin - Hope to see you again!
looking forward to it! Had a great time and met great people at the last meetup.
Sounds great. I'll send you the email tomorrow. I had to miss last month, so this will be my first. I can't wait to meet everyone. Thanks again for setting these up.
I may be a little late, but will be there. I'm really looking forward to meeting some of you!
@Brie Schmidt I hope to make this one since I missed the last one. I don't have my work schedule for that week yet, but will email you once I know.
I'll be out of town, but I definitely recommend you come if you haven't been to one yet! Great opportunity to meet local investors and network.
The last event was great! You did a great job and I really liked how we introduced ourselves at the beginning of the meeting. This helped me to know who to speak with for my particular needs. I look forward to this next meeting and will send you the info requested.
@Brie Schmidt First, I want to congratulate you for your BP podcast interview ( podcast #078). I will do my best to make it there. Hopefully, I won't get lost this time around.
I just got my work schedule for that week and I'll be working until 8:30. Guess I'll have to shoot for next time. :(
I think this is a great idea. I hate I wasn't able to make the last meet up, but I will most definitely be there. Thanks @BrieSchmidt
@Daniel Inskeep - We will see you at the next one then!
@Rose M. - Got it! See you tomorrow
@Steven Rhodes - Thank you! This is a different place than before but in the same general area
@Josh Bryan - Not sure if you work close but we will be there till at lease 9:30 (usually 10:30)
@Larmon Cummings Jr - Look forward to seeing you
I hope to see everyone at the Chicago MeetUp Tomorrow!
Please remember to email me (not required of course) a short description of yourself and what you are looking for. Keep it to 2 sentences please. Tomorrow at noon I will email out the list of people and descriptions so that at the event you will already have an idea of who you want to talk to.
Count me in! I'll be running late. See you all after 8p.
Just a reminder TONIGHT is the Meetup! I have gotten about 30 emails for people who want to share their info before the event. So if you want to be on that email send me what you do and what you are looking for by noon today [email protected]
