Entrepreneurs are a little different, a little odd, and at times, very lonely. Imagine my surprise, when I found two other like-minded business professionals! I (Daisy Nguyen) am a recruiter & business consultant, Dara Beevus is an author, editor & publisher, and Sam Ingram is a realtor. We found common experiences, desires, passions, and drive that had always made us, individually, feel like a misfits. We started meeting monthly, sharing our dreams, troubleshooting our problems, and energizing each other.
And then one day we thought, why stop with just the 3 of us? The Launchwise Group was born. October 2012, we put on a small, casual, intimate event and invited all of our entrepreneurial friends. Fifty plus people turned up for a potluck event at my home in East Isles in Minneapolis. We called the event, “Wine & Chocolate & an Entrepreneurial spirit.” You know that dream where you walk into a room filled with people and for the first time in your life, you fit right in? We had just THAT. Every one of our entrepreneurial friends who have ever felt a little different, a little odd, and a lot lonely – for the first time in forever, we were amongst our PEEPS. Laughing, sharing, supporting, caring and just fitting right in.
