    Hi everyone
    I am new to forums etc, but am excited about getting to meet new business-minded people.
    I saw that there was a group that met on the Gold Coast but it doesn’t seem to be happening any longer? Please let me know if there are still get togethers as I would love to come along.
    My partner and I have a small light engineering company that specialises in stainless steel fabrication – balustrades, marine work and customised articles. We immigrated from Cape Town (South Africa) 10 years ago and made the Gold Coast our home.
    Looking forward to reading more on the forum.

    Hi Tracy,

    Welcome to FS. It’s a great place.

    I spent about 7 years in Cape Town – one of the most beautiful cities in the world imo.

    Good luck with business.

    Cheers, Ned

    Hi Tracy

    I too live on the NOT so “Sunny Gold Coast” at the moment!

    I don’t go to the get together’s so not sure what is happening there.

    It can be a tough place to make a living here and hard to figure out what will work and what won’t for your business.

    Been here for 22 years and still haven’t stopped learning as the coast changes constantly.

    I have to say though ..life really doesn’t get much better if you happen to live here and also own a successful business – don’t you think!

    Good luck with your business -SUE

    Hi Tracy,

    Welcome – it’s great to meet you! :)

    For meet-ups, try this thread: http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/forums/qld/9326-gold-coast-lunch-official-thread.html

    I notice the last event listed was in April, but I suspect Vanessa will be posting about the May event soon.

    Thanks for joining the forum too, by the way,
    Jayne

    Hi and welcome.
    Yes the meetings are still being run, at the corporate centre in Bundall. I actually went to the one the other day and although there was minimal turnout due to the weather, I had a great time, got to chat to some people who I would not normally ever get to talk to. Gained some ideas, learnt about new products and services on offer to me on the coast and it got me out of the office for a couple of hours.
    I’ll be there from now on as I can really justify taking the time to go along.
