Most Challenging Small Business Hurdle
Saturday, 19 December 2009 10:51

Our December 2009 Meetup and Holiday Mixer !

To all CSE Group Members:

Well, we have reached the end of 2009, hopefully all in one piece after a somewhat "rocky" year both professionally and personally for many of us who may have experienced a slow down or drop-off in business, have a personal financial challenge facing them, or generally struggled in this economic "down-turn" we have all had to endure...  Hopefully 2010 will bring an uptick in the general mood of the country and allow us all to begin to build our businesses up again.

In our final end of year meetup this month, I would like to invite you all (as well as guests) to our December 2009 Meetup and Holiday Mixer where we can share some food and fun, and reflect back over the year's high's and low's, and starting laying plans for the new year by doing some serious "holiday networking" and meeting some new business contacts, and learning some new tips and techniques to help you business grow.

So take a look at our December 2009 Meetup Group Agenda below and be sure to log into the Meetup Site and RSVP for your attendance...
