Let's Talk Business Network Celebration

Its a wrap! In fact, that's exactly what the Let's Talk Business Network (http://www.ltbn.com) was celebrating Jan. 20th. The decor inside Comedy Nation, where the party was held, evoked the feeling of being a gnat trapped in a giant sized set of comedic references and props. The guests however, were far from trivial specs on a wall. LTBN members are a high spirited group of entrepreneurs and business people who want to grow personally and professionally. It's easy to have a good time when larger than bite-sized hors d'oeuvres were being passed around. A bevy of beverages made the creative balloon puppets by magician and insurance broker Michael Chaut even more adorable.

I met famed 1010 AM radio personality and advisory board member Sam Albert (http://www.samalbert.com), who "fell in love with the group" about 1 1/2 years ago. His enthusiasm was matched by Alvin Rohrs, of Students In Free Enterprises (http://www.sife.org), whose organization will be the beneficiary of an LTBN fundraiser in October at Mickey Mantles. Other members I spoke to, including Bruce Cohen (National Alliance of Sales and Mrktg Execs), Randy Rosler (http://www.introknocks.com/), David Herlands (The Industrial Printers), Michael Volchok (Volchok Consulting), Philip Liebman (M Direct), and Diane Wildowsky (Cold Call Enterprises) all raved about the wonderful speakers and positive community the network provides.
