I'll keep this short and sweet.
If you want to upgrade your per group where better to find people looking for excellence! You will be surrounded by many like minded people and many potential mentors.
Give back to the community and become part of something bigger than just your own small part of the world.
Meet and hear your hero's and superstar innovators in person.
Its great to listen to Led Zepplin, but there is nothing like seeing them play live! You only live once and there is nothing like experience the buzz in a venue full of other like mind people.
Life is to short to just work all the time. Use business as an excuse to enjoy life instead of hide from it.
See something earth shattering amazing. Use the inspiration to make your life amazing.
