Hi Blaine, Good discussion point. I've found that one of our biggest challenges is simply communication. I'm also a Seattle transplant to the Tacoma area, and I've found business in this area to be much more difficult to cultivate. It's a smaller community overall, and business is mainly based on relationships from within the community.
As a Seattleite myself who moved to Tacoma five years ago, I have the zeal of the converted. I'm wondering what we could do with our business and social community that would give us a stronger identity. What is it that links us? Is it the space? Attitudes? Affordability? This topic may sound vague - but we start here with specifics, develop ideas over a cup of coffee, and who knows...

Do you think that the communication challenge is due partly to us being spread out so much geographically? I suspect that social groups like ours give small businesses here some cohesion.

I have an event spaced that I booked for jan/feb/march at the new business incubator in federal way. I just learned that due to regulation in my business I can't host my own group. My plan was to expose my associates to business owners and good marketing information. Is anyone interested in this?
