    Hi entrepreneurs/small business owners/freelancers/you-tubers,

    Working from home is great but the one thing I miss about working in an office is the social aspect. Going out for a coffee for half an hour and just having a chat and getting to know the other person.

    Our lives, flying-solo, are so full on with our businesses that we forget about stop and have and chat about something other than business. Friends and family are great to talk with but they are generally in a 9-5 job, they don’t really have the same mindset, they probably don’t really understand the successes/problems you are going through, and as you and as harsh as it sounds – they’re not new and interesting.

    But the thing is when I look for entrepreneur meetups they are all very tech-based and they’re all about how to get funding, or networking, and someone is always trying to sell you something. Which takes the fun out of “meeting up”.

    With all that said – Would anyone be interested in meeting up with other entrepreneurs, small business owners, etc… basically anyone who runs their own business for a coffee to simply have a chat? Say once a fortnight/month?

    No agenda other than getting out of the house/office and meeting up with new people with a similar mindset and lifestyle.

    If you are, let me know by replying below and where you are located. I’m in Sydney so I’d love to meet up with other Sydney-siders, but if you’re from interstate it would be great to hear from you as well. And maybe if there are enough people are interested from your city you can organise a meet up for your area?

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks Paul – even if we can get half a dozen people interested that would be a great start.

    Hi JP_Mate

    Welcome indeed. You may like to consider getting something set up on Meetup.com too. We see a lot of activity there and if you mention ‘flying solo’ in your topics (this will make sense if you register to get started) you’ll appear on ‘our’ page: http://www.meetup.com/topics/flying-solo/

    Best of luck getting this group started.

    Robert

    Hello JP_Mate,

    I’m a bit late to the party – are these still happening?
