Eric, I can't tell you how impressed I was with the Mixer Wednesday night. As you know, I just joined InHouston and have been quire impressed with the folks I've met via the group & how generous everyone has been with their time and willingness to share resources - truly a collaborate and friendly environment. I will contact Tex and see if there's anything I can do to help his campaign. Matt
I joined last fall and have been to a few events, but not many lately. My store is open till 7pm and it is a little hard to get out early. I am hoping to get more involved. I am hiring now and wondered if there was a place I could post jobs? I looked around on the site, but did not see anything.
Thank you for your response Eric. What our company would like to do is get in touch with sports franchises here in town to have the opportunity to introduce a product that has already been adopted not only by the Red Sox and Angels as their official drink, but by a few other franchises as far up as in Canada. I have been in touch with the Aeros and would enjoy any opportunity to get an audience with the Dynamo or any other franchise you may help us contact. I feel with your net work this may be possible. If at all possible it would be nice to meet you and give you not only a sample but some more information you may find helpful. I appreciate any guidance you may offer and I also appreciate your time.
A message to all members of InHouston
From Eric Standlee:
I know that the end of summer I dropped the ball on the events.
It is my fault that attendance was way low. Thanks goes to all of the leaders who invited others despite me. They are the true servant leaders.
I am back in the saddle. So, Let's get the networking ball rolling.
See you at the upcoming events!
Erik, no apology neccessary, another networking group I participate in John King's "The After Hours Network" simply shuts down for the summer...yeah thats kind of old school but makes sense in the light of balancing priorities if vacation time is available or other family events are occuring. One suggestion in regards to the event at the Houston Club, it was pretty difficult to find. Several years ago I worked Downtown for a few months servicing accounts for Frito-Lay including stores in the Houston Center but still wandered around for the better part of an hour until I discovered the path to the event. Someone much less familiar with the area probably gave up. I originally planned to park at the medical center or downtown transit center and take the train in: perhaps for the next event a group could meet at one of the train stops and stroll over together with a guide. If you see where I'm going with that idea or have an alternative to accomplish the same thing let me know if I can contribute or assist in any way.
