    All great ideas, Carolyn. If you’re used to largely online businesses the greatest issue is the cost of any real world event. The idea of keeping costs down by renting after-hours space is brilliant, because, of course, you’ll be promoting this to a special network of business associates so location is less of an issue as long as it’s in easy driving distance for your people.
