Struggling with a work issue? Need a perspective shift?
Take advantage of collective intelligence ("hive mind") and an inspiring meeting place to brainstorm and work towards creative solutions to problems.
Think of this as a mash-up of an ad hoc advisory board and group therapy for your work. Come prepared to share and to listen.
Open to any solo entrepreneur or solopreneur wannabe — consultants, freelance creatives and artists included. Open to any work-related issue: promotion, funding, technology, strategy, vision, finding work, time management...
BEAHIVE paying members*: free / $10 public (including non-paying Meetup members)
"I can't remember the last time I had been to a meeting that went this well. It achieved the right balance between orderly and freestyle. For me, it fostered a feeling that each participant was an equal, yet I am sure that everyone offered something insightful, as if each were smarter than I am." — Chris Joslyn, Lissome Software
"Having several different and thoughtful perspectives coming to bear on topics and problems was refreshing and energizing. Even simply hearing myself sum up my own status/issue was quite valuable." — web designer Sean O'Dwyer
