Communication Is Key!

Hey everyone!

Rollo May once said, "Communication leads to community, that is, to understanding, intimacy and mutual valuing."

On that topic, we've failed you in the past.  And for that, we apologize... and we will make sure that doesn't happen going forward.

Two weeks ago, you were told to expect a big announcement in a week.  Well, as we said, that was two weeks ago.   Turns out rebranding is a LOT bigger task than initially expected.  And if you haven't figured it out yet, that's exactly what we're doing... rebranding!

So the big announcement is that the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group is no longer going to be the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group.  Why?  Because we've grown beyond Meetup.  This group started in 2003 as the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group.  Since then, it's changed hands a few times and has had many organizers and co-organizers.  For over 7 years, this group was soley on Meetup.com.  The last time it changed hands was back in 2010.   Since then, we've expanded to LinkedIn, Twitter, Youtube, Facebook and more!  Because of this, we're no longer just a group and no longer just a Meetup Group.  We're now a Network!

So welcome to the Entrepreneur Success Network!

With this new network, we're focusing on better communication, interaction, and engagement with you... our members.  We'll be sending out regular communications on what's going on and upcoming events.  In addition, as we all know, entrepreneurs exist everywhere!  And while we're headquartered in the Chicagoland area, we want to be able to share our message with entrepreneurs everywhere.  That's why we're the Entrepreneur Success Network and not just the Chicago Entrepreneur Success Network.

Going forward, we'll be refocusing on three things.

First, we're focusing on providing more great content and information to everyone.  We'll be doing this through regular communications via our networks with a primary focus on our Website at http://www.EntrepreneurSuccessNetwork.com and our LinkedIn Group for discussions.  So if you haven't joined it yet, please join our LinkedIn group by going to http://bit.ly/EntrepreneurSuccessNetwork.

Second, Networking events.   Networking events are important for people to attend, interact, and meet others.  Networking events are the start of relationship building, future business, and resource connections.  So to that end, we'll be having an After hours Networking event every quarter and work on promoting it well to get people out.  These will be in a fun and relaxing environment, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the next one coming soon.

And third, we're focusing on workshops and trainings.  There's a great need out there to educate current and future entrepreneurs on how to run their business.  Whether you're just starting your business or you've been in it for a while, there's always something new you can learn.  We're excited about the upcoming workshops which will focus on the Entrepreneurial mindset, Business Structures and Financing, Leadership Development, Sales and Marketing, and Time Management, Organization, and Prioritization.  In fact, we've reviewed Entrepreneurial programs from Universities across the country and combined real life entrepreneurial experiences to design workshops which you can use and understand.

These are exciting times for us and we're so happy you're a part of our group.  You'll start seeing changes coming down the line and we'll keep you abreast of them.

So stay tuned for more great information coming your way.

Until then,

Celebrate Life!

March Mastermind Madness

“No individual may have great power without availing himself of the ‘Master Mind.’”

This month marks the 75th anniversary of Napoleon Hill’s release of “Think and Grow Rich,” accredited by many to be one of the greatest business and personal development books of all time. Although millions of people have read it (have you?) many forget that the Mastermind Principle was presented there. The entire Chapter 10 is dedicated to it and named: “Power of the Master Mind; The Driving Force; The Ninth Step Towards Riches.” Some of the topics covered there are:

* Power
* Plans
* Action
* Knowledge
* Desire
* Infinite Intelligence

Well, this is EXACTLY what we want to cover too! This month the Chicago Entrepreneur Meetup Group is going to get to the nitty-gritty of MASTERMINDS. We’ll delve into Napoleon’s original content from seventy-five years ago, then some of ways it’s evolved and is being applied today, and how YOU too can harness the “Power of the Mastermind” yourself. Who knows, maybe we’ll be starting our own mastermind group during this meeting too…I guess you’ll just have to attend to find out. I sure wouldn’t want to miss out if I were you!

Registration is only $15! Online at http://chicagoentrepreneur0320-com.eventbrite.com or cash at the door.

Napoleon defined a “Master Mind” as “Coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people for the attainment of a definite purpose.”

He also speaks of the Third Invisible Mind - “No two minds ever come together without, thereby, creating a third, invisible, intangible force which may be likened to a third mind.”

These concepts aren’t just something a few successful people have used. He credits the success of EVERY greatly powerful INDIVIDUAL to their being part of a GROUP Master Mind:

“Analyze the record of any man who has accumulated a great fortune…and you will find that they have either consciously or unconsciously employed the “Master Mind” Principle. GREAT POWER CAN BE ACCUMULATED THROUGH NO OTHER PRINCIPLE!”
