Last week I spent 3 full days with a bunch of entrepreneurs who also happen to ride motorcycles. We covered some great ideas about building businesses, we added a bunch of new entrepreneur contacts to our “rolodex” but almost as importantly we energised each other the way only a group of entrepreneurs can.
In addition to networking with a bunch of business owners and entrepreneurs who shared a passion for motorbikes we:
1. We spent time with John Paul Dejorea, founder of Paul Martin Hair Products and also founder of Patron Spirits.
2. We hung out with Arkadi Kuhlmann, currently in the process of starting his fifth bank … having previously founded ING Canada, ING US among other accomplishments.
3. We rode motorbikes into the desert around Las Vegas for three separate rides.
I did not stop grinning for the whole time.
Some great advice I received a long time ago was that in order to be as positive as possible, I should “hang out” with positive people. Find a way to do that!
How do YOU get THAT kind of energy?
