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

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…

July 2014, Upcoming FEATURED Events

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.

Build Your Network

Networking is free, most of the time. It’s full of like-minded individuals, and if you go to the right events, it’s full of people that you can work with or learn from in some way.

Again, you do get the odd events where people just end up trying to sell something to you, but I’m glad to say I’m coming across these less and less.  Most of these social networking events provide a laid back atmosphere to chat with similar people, and these informal chats often lead to many opportunities…

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

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

Once upon a time there was a man who lived on the streets.  He had one old sweater and a torn pair of old jeans.  There were holes everywhere.

Over the years teams of street ministers would try to get him to come in to the shelter to get some new clothes but to no avail.

Everyone could see he needed to change his clothes; everyone but the man himself.  They cajoled him. They pleaded with him.  They prayed for him.

One team even…
