One year ago today we founded a “networking” group that we had been warned in advance — “this was done before… and destined to fizzle in a couple of weeks” (well it did do that a couple of times) but here we are today!
Our small group of entrepreneurs has become so much more than I or my “personal board of directors” had ever dreamed possible – but that is exactly why it was formed; To bring together the energy, the talents, the resources, and the friendship of a unique group of business people that struggle every day to bring Bainbridge Island (and in some cases much further) the goods and services need to make it thrive. I can’t tell you in words how exciting and valuable this experience has been to me over this year.
In 2010 our Friday morning group will be growing in exciting new ways. We are planning, with your help, to blaze some new paths into “making connections in a new way.” We might even dust off a few old tried and true events and exercises to make it interesting. But the bottom line of today’s message is to express to you how glad I am that I get to make this journey with you!
Happy Birthday Bainbridge Business Connections! And Thanks to Kevin Dwyer and the Chamber of Commerce for getting the word out about us.
And don’t forget to have your morning cup of BBC!
