Happy 7th Birthday Motor City Connect

I just sent this blast:

7 years ago today I started a yahoo group and named it Motor City Connect. I knew it would be a networking group that was destined to do some cool things in the Detroit area. As I look back on the past several years, I’m pretty sure we did.

It’s been a great trip and I’m so ve ry grateful for the wonderful people I’ve met along the way. Many of you continue to inspire me. I just spent some time reading the posts that described our origins leading up to our massive 3rd birthday party in 2010. It was a great walk down memory lane.

If you’re interested in learning about the history of MCC, you can read it by clicking the following: MCC History- In The Beginning is HERE. HERE is message 2n”Year 1 in MCC History”.  message 3: year 2, the virus begins is HERE and is my absolute favorite. Message 4- 2009 in Review is HERE (This one is a bit depressing).

It’s kind of funny that message 4 starts by saying this is message 4 of 5 and I have yet to find message 5. I think it’s most likely that I never wrote it.  That seems to be a great parable for how Motor City Connect has existed. There have been many great beginnings…but not a ton of closure. It’s like a football team that gets 325 yards in the first half but only scores 4 field goals. 

There are new things coming. I have seen the direction for this group and it is very clear. However, I’m rather busy launching a new program called Click Click Car that will revolutionize the auto leasing business. We soft launch this month, and intend to go live in January. Once that gets wheels up (pun intended), I will be making some major changes here. Stay tuned for both.

It would be awesome to hear of some of your memories of our group. Please share them here on the site, on our Facebook Group, Our LinkedIn Group or tag @MotorCity on Twitter. 

We look forward to connecting with you again very soon.

Happy Birthday MCC!! It's been quite a journey!

Happy Birthday MCC! Let's celebrate!

I was invited by Terry to attend an "Effective Networking" meeting in Ferndale way back in 2007—about 25 people were there.

THANKS for being so committed and determined to make this happen!—"MCC" is a networking 'force'!
