A little shamesless self-promotion

This may have nothing to do with networking at the moment but I wanted to let my blog readers know about my knew books project since I will be planning a couple of events related to their launch in the future where you will be welcome to come and network.

I am planning to publish 3 Christmas-themed books:

1. "Unforgettable Christmas" - a unique reference guide to great activities and events for 25 days of Christmas - your Christmas Yellow Pages and a planner in one book.

2. "The Night Before Christmas" translated in Russian - this classic Clark Clement Moore book is a great gift for all your Russian speaking friends - Скоро выйдет в печати:"В Ночь Перед Рождеством" Кларка Клемента Мура на РУССКОМ ЯЗЫКЕ!

3.Collection of Russian Folktales about Winter in English - 20 wonderful tales featuring exciting adventures, magical creatures, unusual landscapes - taking you on an unforgettable journey from winter's beginning to the end.

Here is the official website of this new project:

I will post up-dates for the events there.

Cutting Edge Events

Cutting Edge Events website is useful to know if you are interested in business and social networking in Chicago. They organize what I would define as "jazzy" or entertaining and fun events and attract younger crowds.

Their events are usually for a fee (price range between 15 to 50 USD on average) but you are bound to get something extra than just networking from more expensive events. For example, a whole evening of pampering for women will be provided at May 6 "Day as a Goddess" event (see details on their website).
