One of the numerous benefits of belonging to a regular networking group where you feel safe, is that you can ask for feedback.
At the Express Success Network, we have mixed attendees. People come when they can come. We have regulars, semi-regulars and guests - a different mix each event.
There is a comfort level established and the intimate setting provides the opportunity for participants to ask for feedback. The benefit of that is they receive honest input from caring professionals who have either experience as someone who has done what they are trying to do or are possible consumers so they could give two different perspectives.
Woudn't it be better to receive honest feedback from a select group before taking your show on the road to the masses? We've actually had a participant with a new business blossom with the feedback received from attendees. We watched her grow and flourish and it was heartwarming to see.
