Another Early Reason

I discovered a new reason for showing up early for the networking event today: Finding parking.

I spoke this morning at the Shifting Gears Cohort Meeting in Ypsilanti at Spark East. I’ve been in Ypsi before and always had a public parking lot where I liked to park near downtown. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that someone had put up a “one hour parking” sign over my spot (and I was speaking from 9 until 11)!

Fortunately, my good friend Steve Krogness, who arranged the speaking opportunity, knows Ypsilanti much better than I do and was able to lead me to a good spot. I even got back to the meeting in time to do a little networking. Thanks Steve!

So, show up early. There are so many reasons to do so.
