As we move into a new season, I’m happy to see the membership of this Meetup grow. Considering the sheer number of people interested in forming lifelong, lasting partnerships for the greater good of society, it reflects a profound optimism in marketplace possibilities.
Portland is an exceptional leader in a number of conscious realms, and it’s time to take the next step with this Meetup. Let’s further build this once-a-month meeting into a supportive community for you – its members. Let’s help Portland expand its already innovative social entrepreneurship ideals.
You and your colleagues have the ability to make that happen.
We all know intention is the first step to embarking on a truly great endeavor. Showing up to put that intention into action carries the momentum of our thoughts, hopes, and visions into the world. Progress manifests when people take the time to show up.
Come. To. The. Meetup.
The Social Entrepreneurs of Portland Meetup isn’t simply about rubbing some elbows, throwing around a few business cards, and (maybe) connecting on LinkedIn. It’s about flaming your passions with the fires of like-minded doers. It’s about encouraging your fellow paradigm-challenging business professionals to expand thoughtful structures that you support and respect. It’s about finding comrades to help navigate brazen new paths.
It’s time, friends. It’s time to take this Meetup – and the connections we build – to the next level.
There’s so much fresh excitement in the air when fall arrives. We can take that energy and make the last few months of 2016 count in our lives, in our businesses, and in the world.
