It’s time for some good learnin’ – New series of FREE Lunch & Learns

I don’t know about you, but I’m launching into 2011 very thankful that I am where I am . . . Still over – not under (the ground) . . . still in business – and excited (albeit with a twinge of trepidation) about the potential in the coming year.

I know that to realize the full benefit of this potential I’m going to have to  kick into HIGH gear with respect to re-tooling my business and staying “light on my feet” so I can roll with any punches that come at me.

More than anything, this will require surrounding myself with the RIGHT people – a wide diversity of “non-homogenous” people.

– People who will support me unconditionally and be there to fill in the gaps when gaps need filling

– People who I can bounce new ideas off of who will offer candid advice.

– People who are learning based, open to new ideas, and willing to share.

The fact is, our cheese moves every day

The way we survive in 2011 must be a “Circle the wagons” approach. We all must seize every opportunity to LEARN and know more about the environment we are in such that we make (and advise clients to make) sound personal and business decisions.

I feel it’s more important NOW than EVER to dial in to LOCAL networks such that we as a tight community can navigate through the maze of raplexity (Rapidly changing complexity).

With all of this in mind, I am (again) offering weekly “Vendor Spotlight lunch & Learn” events. 11:30-1ish

Most of these happen on Wednesdays (some on Thursdays) 

All of these are FREE

All you’ve gotta do is RSVP and Show up

I Identify vendors who are willing to “Educate and Feed” whoever comes . . . and the education part must be a significant theme relating to their field of expertise.

We typically have 15-30 participants ranging from REALTORS (From a variety of firms) to Lenders to Title Attorneys, home Inspectors, etc).

Each meeting ALWAYS results in new relationships formed and new knowledge gained by every person.

All of these events will be posted to the Pareto Realty Facebook Page Event Calendar

So . . . Without further ado . . .
