Just returned from the LA Meet and Greet Lunch. And quite frankly, there was a big disappointment!
Even though I didn't host the get together, I knew the particulars. We had 35 ladies that requested an invite to the lunch. And there were some on a wait list.
However, only 10 or so showed up!! Granted they were a spectacular 10, but still 10 out of 35. Ladies, the gents paid $80 to attend this lunch. The ladies as always had their lunches paid for as part of the $80. Honestly, we don't attend these get togethers (lunch or my parties) to sit and talk with each other. We do that enough already. We really don't even go for the food. We view it as a chance to meet maybe somebody new or to meet somebody we have had our eye on for awhile.
We all understand that sometimes business gets in the way. However, I do know that plenty ladies who attend these events block out the time to attend.
In short, ladies, we want to meet you. Thats why we spend the money we do. But quite frankly, if ladies are not going to attend, there probably isn't a reason to have these get togethers.
