Eastern NC Newbie seeks advice on starting an area REI support group

3 Replies

While there are BP-ers in my area, and I have tried to connect via BP... no one seems to be responding. I've also looked online, and there don't seem to be any REI groups in the area either. I really want to connect with some like-minded folks! help?

Have you tried putting a MeetUp together?

@Leann W.  people are not responding to your requests to connect?  Surprised to hear that and it's unfortunate given your and your husband's experience. Possibly you haven't encountered the right people yet.  Is there a reia? If not, find out through record searches who the rehabbers and landlords are in your area and try to connect with them. Best of luck to you. I grew up in the eastern part of the state as well. 

I've googled and found virtually nothing.  I guess there might be this fear factor that if we "get together" and help each other (as we are able)... That we're merely helping those with which we wind up competing with for deals?  The thought occurred to me yesterday that I could create a small gathering focused around say a BP PODCAST😜, have eats/ bevs... And talk about our stuff afterwards.  I'm struggling here.  Is there a forum convo on file that could help?
