Just a quick thank you to one and all for attending yesterday’s anniversary party. I have to say that it was probably one of the best events we’ve had in a long time. The purpose of the party was to simply get to know each other in a more social way but it quickly turned into this amazing, cohesive forum for new ideas and support. Some of the stories I heard were truly inspiring and reminded me of the reason I started the group to begin with. Afterwards, I attended Maria Larssen’s event at Linen Life in Emeryville which turned into this East Bay nexus for truly creative people. I met fellow authors,painters, sculpters, models,photo journalists, poets and multi media enthusiasts. If you haven’t attended an event as of yet please be sure to do so. Linen Life is located 1375 Park Ave in Emeryville 510-601-5550 and host a networking event every Wed starting at 7pm. It was a wonderful event and many of the artists present have more commercial occupations to support their art, most of whom were interested in attending my workshops or coming to my networking event. As we wrap up 2006 and head into 2007, I look forward to hosting more events and sharing with all of you networking and business resources available to all small business owners. Let’s all try to make the coming year the best ever.
