  • Meet Once a Month

    • More than that is a burden; less and people lose interest

  • Meet Regularly at a Set Time and Place

    • Having to deal with sporadic meetings at various locations can not only derail people's focus on their goals, it can lessen their drive to attend.

    • You can alternate hosting the meetings at your homes, but many clubs opt to choose a permanent, neutral space, such as a coffeehouse, restaurant or community center.
