Congrats on setting up your Open Coffee! I hope anyone who can makes it down for the Northwest Connects event 28th November. It's a chance for learning/sharing ideas and advice about starting and re-starting a business. Hopefully lots of business to business connections can be made. I see some of your already registered, or are speaking!

Hi all,

I couldn't get to last nights meeting - but I will be active in the group in 2010.

I am currently involved in a number of web-based businesses and we are really busy right now preparing some applications for early next year.
