We have a group in Kansas City where we have attendees from ALL OVER the Metro area: Liberty, Parkville, Gladstone, Lee’s Summit, Grandview, Olathe, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Gardner and just about every other city we have !!! This group is called No Excuses Networking and we meet every Thursday from 11:30-1pm at Fazoli’s on Alden Street in Olathe, Kansas.
This group is almost 2 years old and we started it because some people don’t want to PAY to Network, nor pay HUGE luncheon event prices to attend. (Fazoli’s offers a side salad for around $3 and all the breadsticks you can hold, too). We started with about 4 of us and we have around 25 now and even in the snowiest of weeks, these folks still show up.
The #tribe concept has been adopted here as we support and encourage each other in a Lunch and Learn setting. What are your struggles/successes/challenges/current events etc. are some of the questions proposed.
Do you want to CANCEL the group, put it on hold, for the Summer ??? WHAT ?!?! Well, people don’t really Network in the Summer – NOT TRUE with this group !!! No Excuses Networking is still going strong with a different topic each week. This is open to everyone and the things we have been able to learn have proven to be invaluable when put into practice.
Do you have NO EXCUSES in your Networking toolbox ? Everyone can be Successful if they just work at it. The time is NOW.
