I joined a networking group to help my biz, but I soooooo regret it. :( It's really infringing on me & my time. Now I know I have to work at getting word out about my biz, which is why I joined in the first place, but it has ended up being not at all what I expected. Sigh....I had to pay $500 (non-refundable) to join.
They are having all these meetings and courses and training blah blah blah which are entirely unrelated to me. These are the kind of things I said good ridance to when I left my office job, and here I am in them again, but now it's on MY time
AND, I'm not getting any referrals out of it. All the business I've had so far, I've gotten from OUTSIDE this group - so it's not like I'm actually benefitting.
Now, there's some stupid training session that I'm "required" to go to....REQUIRED???? Excuse me? I paid you, and you tell me what to do? GRRRRR
Would I be completely stupid just to walk away from it? Even though I spent the $$$?
I'm so upset!
