You know what they say about great friends? How you might not see one another for ages, but once you do, you can pick up right where you left off? That’s exactly how I feel about the crew at Dot Com Pho. We’ve been hanging out for years, talking about everything from making money online to the latest tech toys over piping hot bowls of Vietnamese rice noodles. And we finally got back together again.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a whole year since we last had one of our “official” lunch meetups. For the uninitiated, one of the most common questions I get about Dot Com Pho has to do with describing what it is in the first place.

I won’t get too deep into the history here. Basically, it started out as a way for local Vancouver entrepreneurs to get together for lunch to chat about whatever. The informal networking event provided a place where work-from-home types could get some face-to-face interaction with like-minded individuals. Many of the people I’ve met through Dot Com Pho over the years have become both great clients and amazing friends.

Once upon a time, we’d get together every Saturday regardless of how many people showed up. Some weeks, there might be only three or four of us. Other weeks, we’d get over 20 attendees. But then people started getting married, having kids and transitioning to “normal” day jobs. It’s something that has changed a lot with Dot Com Pho in recent years. Priorities have shifted and understandably so.

If you’re interested in the books by Anthony C. Taylor that I mention in the vlog, you can pick up I Wish I Knew and Alignment through the links provided here. And, as you already know, my third book Beyond the Baby Babble is also available now in your choice of paperback or Kindle.

It’s almost funny how last week’s vlog was about finding some “me” time and this week’s vlog is about getting some “we” time. Curious how life works itself out that way. How often do you get together with your friends?
