I've recently moved back to my old hometown in the midwest from the bustling burbs of Washington, DC. In DC everyone knows about networking and mastermind groups, but here in dullsville, none of the businesses have a clue. It's like they are still back in the early 1900s. There is a lot of fighting and backstabbing between the different small business owners and no one seems to want to grow their company -- yet everyone complains about the lack of business. Go figure.

I'm trying to start an organization that has three different components -- Networking, Mastermind and monthly educational seminars -- and I'm charging $75 a year for membership. People seem to be interested but then I hear behind my back that they are complaining to the Chamber that I'm in competition. I have a first, informational/educational forum set up for the first part of October with an expert on networking coming to give a presentation. I'm afraid that no one will come. Any suggestions?
