A Meet Up Can Be Really Cool!
Have you ever tried a Meet Up in your area? Meet Ups are all the rage right now and there is one for every person and every age. According to Meet.up.com a Meet Up is when getting together with real people in real life makes powerful things happen. Side hustles become careers, ideas become movements, and chance encounters become lifelong connections. Meetup brings people together to create thriving communities.
Just use the app/desktop version put in your phone number/email and you are immediately presented with a world of options for things to do in your area. These things can include business get-togethers, bicycle trips, cooking lessons, hiking in your area, dog lovers walks, meditation ceremonies, social gatherings, single cruises and so so SO much more. If you want to do it there is probably a Meet Up for it.
Some of the Meet Ups I have done are :
Oceanside Saturday Golfers
Carlsbad Networking Women
Team Referral NeworkCarlsbad Dog Walk
Farm to Fork Social
All you need to do is come up with an idea and put in your zip code and BAMM you have something to do this weekend.
If you do not see a Meet Up that you were looking for, guess what? You can create one!!! I haven’t ever done this so I can not tell you a lot about the procedure but here is some step by step instructions from Meetup.com.
Some of the Meet Ups are FREE and some of them have a fee set by the organizer. Meet Up has always been very good about offering me a refund if I signed up for something and then something went South and I could not attend.
Lastly, I want to mention that as in anything dealing with the public and people you do not know you MUST exercise common sense. Check out their policy and community guidelines to get more info on safety.
