When you are first starting hardly anyone is coming, Remain dedicated and focused on how to grow the group you are starting. See what you have in your mind as real and benefiting as many people as possible. There will be those who show up faithfully and those who cancel at the last minute everytime. Don't take it personally when the cancel. Keep on aligning with those who have the same values as yourself. Be patient and put in the work. Failure is the learning off of the choices you have made. Ask those people who are your network, what would you like to see and the best times to meet, that way. You can improve, ask and observe what do work and what doesn't.
