Ken's Naperville Real Estate Blog : Joining the Naperville Chamber of Commerce. 2013 will be the year...

Joining the Naperville Chamber of Commerce. 2013 will be the year...

I have been a small business owner for just over 7 years.  

I started as a Naperville Realtor in October of 2005, and since that time, have involved myself in many community events, fundraisers, and activities...

But until now, never really considered joining my local chamber.  That is about to change...

In 2013, I will be joining the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce...

 Downtown Naperville at Night-Downtown Naperville at Night...

 

I am extremely excited.

Oh sure, I have gone to chamber events in the past.  Social events.  Networking events...

But they never really seemed my thing.  Passing out business cards looking for business.  I never felt like I belonged...

But the irony is I love meeting people.  Shaking hands.  Asking questions.  I am a natural networker...

So I am going to do it this year. 

I have a few other motivations as well.  In the last few months, I have added other business interests...  

I have started Naperville Scooters, and hope to open a dealership within the next 6 months...

I also recently started a business consulting firm too.  Tracy Social Media Solutions, designed to help small business grow using Facebook...

Given the diversity of my interests, as well as the desire to learn more about various business topics, I will be joining the chamber in 2013.

Again, I am excited.  Not just to exchange cards, per se...

But to learn.  So much to learn.  Zoning.  Financing.  Laws.  As well as meeting potential investors and potential clients...

Who knows?

I may just sell a home or two...

Hi Richard.  Thanks for stopping in!  I am excited...

Again, not sure why the change of attitude on my part.  Perhaps I feel I have more to offer.  Perhaps I have more needs...

Thanks again!
