There are numbers of networking meetup groups that come together for all sorts of purposes. Many of them meet to share ideas, network to find jobs, connect with others, teach and educate--you name it. Some popular ones meet to plan business strategy. There is another idea, however, that can bring all of these purposes together in one pie. Start an entrepreneurial group where the group itself is the nucleus of the building of a business as a social unit.
Individuals often come together in these types of settings to find information that they can use to go out into the world and become an entrepreneur. There is a golden opportunity that already exists in such a setting, but is virtually invisible because everyone is usually so busy trying to figure out how to get ahead themselves. All the individual creativity, talent, energy, drive and imagination necessary to start a successful business can be woven together as a team to form a very profitable enterprise. All you need is a product and a strategy. Here are some tips.
For little if no investment, your group can engage in a form of business popularly known as network marketing. Several solid companies actively seek budding entrepreneurs to market their products for them. They already have an in-place distribution system worldwide, popular product lines, free training and support, and compensation plans that any Wall Street executive would envy. With the advent of social networking sites and social media technology any individual can literally advertise, market and promote a product or business for free all over the internet.
As network meetup groups, you are already engaging in business strategies that make a successful network marketer profitable--connecting with other people and building relationships. If you band together as a team or form your own, there is no telling how big of a business you can develop. Start to think differently about how to make money and money will come to you in new ways. Do some research on network marketing companies? You may just find what you're looking for.
