We have lofty and amazing ideas all the time, but too often we let our real or perceived roadblocks totally stall us from starting. We procrastinate, delay, doubt and create a litany of excuses to avoid starting. Sometimes it’s because our ideas are so big we just don’t know where to begin, other times the roadblocks are real and we allow that to stall us out. Well, I think you deserve the best shot at getting started and I want to help. I believe that powerful ideas require powerful participants, those participants form teams, and those teams, with proper and passionate leadership, build lofty and amazing things together by meeting and networking!

Networking, is a dirty word. It’s something we have to do to build connections to help launch big things, but it’s certainly not something most of us love, and that’s one of the ways I can help. Try out 'The Art of Active Networking'! http://www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.com Our database and groups are almost 200,000 strong, over 12,000 people have attended in 5 countries, 3 continents and 15 cities. We have 8 Meetup Groups worldwide, a LinkedIn Group, Instagram and a few Facebook Pages and our Twitter is @ActiveNetworkin, but most of all? We have awesome people who want to connect for a different reason.

We're here to help you do better and to do big things! PERIOD!

Our unique concept of #GIVE4 and #MyGIVE4 are growing worldwide and more people are finding ways to give to each other while connecting on many levels. So you can continue to go to networking events where people ask you what you do for a living and then bolt, or you can come to the one networking event that is all about helping everyone in the room to do better.

Monday night January 25th we’re in San Jose after big increases in attendance in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Orange County just last week, and all those cities repeat monthly. We are headed back to New York, Kansas City, Vancouver BC and we're adding new cities all the time! We launched Amsterdam and Berlin in December and Austin, Texas is coming in a few months!

Big things are brewing, amazing people are coming, others are finding jobs, joining teams, launching their big ideas, quitting jobs, creating companies and pursuing their passions and the careers they love. Whether you "network" for friends, relationships, careers or business, let us help you do it better. Your Startup needs us, your entrepreneurial spirit will thrive with us, and your friends? Well…they probably already attend! Let us help you elevate your networking to an Active Art!
