Austin Chapter Second Friday Breakfast Presents Reuben Swartz

Please join us for the monthly Second Friday Breakfast series. This month we present Reuben Swartz, founder of Mimiran, the fun, "anti-CRM" for independent consultants. Mimiran represents the system that Reuben wishes he'd had when he was struggling to use the enterprise CRMs that his Fortune 500 clients were using. Reuben is also known as the "Chief Nerd" and the host of the Sales for Nerds podcast.
So many people who love serving clients get stuck on client acquisition when they decide to start their own professional services businesses. Traditional sales and marketing techniques feel icky and they're not effective for service-oriented people. In this talk, we'll look at how to help instead of sell, teach instead of market, and connect instead of network, so you can get more, better clients, and have fun doing it.
Coffee and breakfast tacos are provided by the school. There is also plenty of free parking. RSVP by December 8th to secure your spot!

Time: 7:30-8:30 a.m. 

Location: 555 W. Bitters Rd. #110, San Antonio, TX 78216
