A month or two ago, I began "meeting" with a few other entrepreneurs who are also just starting out via online chat and a weekly conference call. Our purpose is to serve as a sounding board and to hold each other accountable to progressing on our business ideas.
I`ve found it immensely helpful. We think, though, that having a few more people in the group would be even better.
So if you`re interested in this type of thing, PM me or respond in this forum.
