A friend of mine recently invited a group of women to a dinner party to see if they might be interested in forming an investors group.
That is, that each of the women would contribute $500 as an initial outlay and invest the money into the stock market.
She picked other women she thought might be interested and she picked right. The group formed and they continue to meet on a regular basis to check in about how their investments are going and to discuss the new shares they're considering.
Then, each month they rotate and meet at another group member's house for dinner.
The point of this post and from the previous couple is that dinner parties can serve a dual purpose. You can meet to discuss issues with friends (like this investment group do), or you can provide support and encouragement to your friends by sharing goals and aspirations.
Yes, you can meet anywhere but don't you think sharing a meal together adds that little extra?
But then, the regular catch up dinner party with friends and acquaintances is also great.
Stay tuned for more dinner party ideas soon.
