business in the city details

Thanks to the many responses to the q&a business chat idea, we are moving ahead! I have reserved a spot at Next Door, an awesome new spot in Lincoln Park, for Tuesday, October 4th. Since the space can only be reserved until 7pm, I’ve gone ahead and booked us for 6:00-7:00. Hopefully that will be enough time for commuters to get there (it’s near the Diversey El stop and the Clark/Broadway/Halsted intersection).

Since I’m imagining some people may be hungry… feel free to bring snacks or take out. Based on the emails and comments, some people are whipping up some awesome treats to share, which is more than encouraged. Oh, and there is a coffee shop right inside the space, so we can be caffeinated if the mood strikes.

For those who aren’t in Chicago, I apologize if it is not possible to attend. A few people mentioned that doing it online would be nice, and I am definitely considering that for the future. But more than anything, I really want to get out and interact with people. I spend so much of my time working in the studio with the girls that I miss the live connection. Heck, I’d even love to bring this kind of thing to other cities in the future as well… but again, I’m taking it slowly and seeing where it leads.

And of course for those who want in-depth one-on-one advice and consulting, please also remember that I do that as well (via phone, Skype, or in person).

So now that the date is set, who’s coming!?

    You know I’m in! So glad I am able to make it – thanks for making the effort to work around my crazy schedule ūüôā I’ll definitely try to bring some homemade goodies too.

  2. Cathy

    I “think” I should be able to make it. You can tentatively pencil me in!

  3. Maddie

    I’ll be there! This will be two days after I move into my new apartment, so I may have dark circles under my eyes from late nights spent unpacking. But I’m *totally* excited about this.

    Something like this would be great for Charlotte NC! Best wishes ^_^

    Maddie, good luck with the move!

    Cathy, hope you can make it!

    Nikell, I’ll keep that in mind ; )

    This would be SO amazing to go to, is it possible at all to schedule one of these for a weekend day sometime? I live in Cincinnati which would be an easy bus ride to Chicago but I’m not sure I could swing in during a weekday. Just wondering if that will ever be the cards. Either way, hope you guys have a wonderful evening!

  9. How did I miss this the first time around? I already scheduled a client meeting for 5.30pm on Wednesday or else I would totally be there! Please keep me posted on future sessions.
