For the past five years I’ve been running an open business networking group on behalf of the New Haven, Indiana Chamber of Commerce. Today I arrived at 469 Sports and Spirits at 1140am which is later than I like, I try and be there by 1130 so I can greet new people and make sure the room is in good shape. We have a great server, Amy, who takes excellent care of us and remembers our names and our food and drink tendencies.
Three people were already there when I arrived and one was new to our group. Monika counted and we had 19 people today with two new ones. I always make an introduction about our guidelines for the meeting and this time I mentioned to please put your phone in silent mode. One of the attendees, Doug Thurber, called my phone to see if I followed my own rules and fortunately it was in silent mode so I wasn’t embarrassed. We have fun at our meetings.
