    Thanks for the insights. I do love the threads/forums, but I can get lost in the site for hours each day. I am looking to streamline - if possible.

    Re: aligned biz owners...I am looking for diversity...not just my POV. That is how one grows their business understanding the right and wrong ways.

    Re: busy - I hate that word. We all can fill our time for the sake of busy, but is that time being used productively? Those are the peeps I am trying to find. Productive, focused, driven, etc... It isn't an easy circle to find, but they are out there. :)

    That comment is exactly why sometimes reading through threads to get to the meat of the question can be frustrating. The messages meant to be funny, passive-aggressive, and/or nothing to do with the original request are extra fodder/wasted time. I like the interaction on here, but am trying to work with people that add value given everyone's hectic schedules in real time.

    Again - if that isn't you, I am ok with that. I am looking for a small group and will always utilize LS for its vast knowledge database while adding to it.

    Look into bni, it's a group of like minded business people. They usually meet once a week.

    Join your local chamber of commerce. Not only do you get to indulge in various biz meetings, it’s also a great marketing, educational, and networking avenue.
