We have even been known to bring our partners and families to Sunday brunch. We listen to each others’ podcasts, go to each others’ shows, and read each others’ writing. We help each other troubleshoot issues with our small businesses. There are so many current and former entrepreneurs here that we are basically one giant MasterMind group. We aren’t afraid to be weird, and if that phrase makes you smile, odds are good you’re in the right place.
