May Networking Meeting

Location: Woobly Boots (1301 NW 114th St, Clive)

Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm

Join us as we continue our discussion from the February Meeting where we discussed Simon Sinek’s “What is your Why?”  Life is a series of choices. Sometimes our choices work out for the better…and sometimes they don’t. But there is one choice, regardless of every other decision, that profoundly affects how we feel about our journey: Do we go alone or do we go together?  It is the courageous few who ask for help. It is the giving few willing to help others. We can all find the courage we need and know the joy of service – the minute we learn that together is better 

We look forward to seeing you there!
