I was recently invited to attend my first YPN group in Minneapolis by fellow Lounge blogger Nobu Hata. As many of you know, the Minneapolis YoPros were just named Chapter of the Year — I now understand why.
I went in not knowing what to expect. I have attended other local networking groups in the past and kind of walked away with a “well whatever” feeling. However, the Minneapolis YoPros chapter is different.
I left there completly amazed and energized. It seemed as if everyone there was in love with real estate, just as I am. I learned so many valuable things. They have clear goals and agendas. They make the events worthwhile for everyone.
Now I feel as if I can conquer the world! …Well, at least the Twin Cities. It really made me see how I can take my career further and it gave me the tools to do it. At the same time, it also made me want to get more involved with the industry nationally.
If you haven’t had a chance, attend your local YPN chapter events. It will truly benefit your career.
