In the spirit of my last entry on "Craving Connection," I found this awesome resource that provides opportunities for people to find/meet like-minded people. This great site, called MeetUp.com, allows you to search by region/city/zip and topic for groups that fit your areas of interest. From hiking groups to dining clubs to business networking, this site has it all.
An additional feature is the ability to create a new group from scratch. Perhaps you have been wanting to create a coffee tasting club or a group for new moms. Here's your chance to put it out there and see what kind of response you get. If there is enough interest, you could coordinate a meeting. The best part: just because you came up with the idea doesn't mean that you have to lead the whole thing. Just start the ball rolling and enroll others into driving it.
Put yourself out there! Invent something new! Here's your opportunity to create connections!
