This event is one of many that are taking place nationally around EntrepreneurshipWeek USA, February 24-March 3. (Note that this is a good time to get some press coverage for entrepreneurs, so if you have been courting journalists, think of a good hook for a story.)
If you are local, or are tired of having to wear a space suit to go outside and stay alive since it is so cold where you live, please come and join us! Phoenix weather should be totally delightful on that date and I would love to meet you in person. Maybe both of us could elbow our way to Robert Scoble to get a cheesy picture.
March in Phoenix does sound good!
This entry and event prompted me to comment on the huge benefits of serving our local community, and not just the www. global community at large.
Recently a buddy reminded me of an earlier declaration I made on the power of creating “community” both local and global. The timing of this entry is spot-on for my accountability.
Therefore, my buddy and one of our mutual friends-Lisa@playfulspirit.com meet for great coffee at our mutual favorite cafe stomping grounds, and discuss ways to make an impact locally.
Thanks for expanding my vision-local and global.
I just now discovered your wonderful and very useful blog via the About.com site. Now that I’m starting my own business I’m going to bookmark it immediately. One of my other sites is Delightfulblogs.com and if you have a minute I’d love to have you submit it to the directory. I think the thousands of gals (and guys) who visit to discover new blogs would benefit from yours.
Good luck. Robert and Maryam are two of the shyest peopel you could hope to try to meet! Not.
