Profile Information

How did you hear about this site InHouston?
I created InHouston.ning.com. I was growing my LinkedIn network (now almost 10000+ direct connects and over 14 million in the network) and realized that lots of them were here in Houston. So, I started a LinkedIn group. That grew, so I invited them to start up the conversation around events at inhouston.ning.com. Now we are over 14000 members on the Ning site and over 8000 in the LinkedIn group. Now that isn't a 10th of the Houston members of LinkedIn and is a small portion of my group of Houston contacts, but we are growing at a good clip as people join and get involved. Are you involved yet?

Have you heard of Houston's Premier Professional Business Networking Group?

Posted on July 25, 2015 at 12:29pm 0 Comments

I get calls and texts and emails all of the time asking how to get updates on our events. I just got one from Grace Deen. She must have been a member at one time, but for some reason doesn't have an account at theinhouston.com now. I searched her name on theinhouston.com and found two people she referred.

So, Grace, and everyone else who wants to be on the email list, one side benefit of joining our site (no cost), and creating a profile here is that you automatically get updates from…

Thank you for being a member of InHouston. Some remember InHouston when it started as LinkedIn Houston in 2007. When we reached 2000+ members we added a yahoo group and then eventually the ning.com site we use today.

Now, you are are one of 35,000 plus members in this site, our facebook pages/groups, and our linkedin groups and our twitter accounts.

Even so, we missed you if you didn't come to our last event July 8th. I am sure it is because most of you were still recovering…

How do most come out to our events for the first time?

Posted on May 3, 2015 at 1:41pm 1 Comment

Our studies have shown that the majority of our site members signed up after finding us in a search.

However, most have come out to our events because someone invited them personally.

I would like to thank all of you who have personally invited your friends and colleagues and potential clients.

We continue to get our value from having our free events and meeting amazing people all around Houston.

I invite all of my networks and everyone I know to come to all of our… Continue

o can write with authority on the information that is relevant to your target audience
o can meet a deadline

InCity Lubbock Business Networking at Fox and Hound

August 9, 2016 from 6pm to 8pm
InCity Lubbock's Business Networking Mixer! We are building on the past event, which was a great success! Lots of value was shared and great business relationships were formed. We will have the same format as last time. Come in and prepare to have a great night of networking. There will be no presentation and definitely no sales pitch. Just a room filled with great business minds and servant leaders of West Texas.See More

Hi Eric,

I have been a member for a little over a year and have attended several events. I think InHouston is a great opportunity and I thank you for your leadership. I am part of the leadership team for the Sugar Land Networking Group. We teach people, at no charge, how to craft their marketing tools for a job search and how to effectively network looking for their next great opportunity. I'd like to know if if would be acceptable for me to post weekly updates on the week's topic and location. And if this is acceptable what is the proper vehicle for me to use.

 

Sincerely,

 

Steven Shute

Eric, I am a member of InHouston but have not networked as much as I would have liked.  Here's to better 2012!  I own a laser skincare business and I want to invite members to my Open House events, but I do not know the best way/ways to do this, without seeming like a spammer.  Can you help, Please?

I haven't had a chance to get to a mixer in Clear Lake.  My wife is having our 2nd boy in about a month.  Once things calm down, I'll be getting involved.  I hope everything is well with you.

Eric,

 

How have you been sir?  It has been a while since we've seen each other.  I hope things are going well.  I'm no longer down the street from your office.  I've moved down to Clear Lake to take over my father's financial practice.

 

Next time you are down here, let's go to lunch.  Have a great rest of the week!

 

Garrett
