Everything has gotten worse in the last few years. I used to drive home at 2am and I'd be the only person on the road. I just now drove from Crandall (south of Dallas) and there was all kinds of traffic.

I think my sales lady set up a delivery with this 76 year old lady for 4-5pm Saturday..... not sure though, it might be Sunday. I'll have to check when I wake up.

I will be there enjoying the ambiance in my Hawaiian shirt.
RSVP if you would like to join me so I can make sure we have enough room.
I would had loved to be there. But it's during my scheduled work hours. Let me know next time you guys meet upl.
Off Topic: Do you guys get concern with your safety in Dallas? I feel like every other day, I hear about car theft and robberies. When I first moved here (For those that know North Dallas, I'm at Preston/Forest), I had a more upscale vibe because of all of the nice houses and cars. Now I am not even comfortable leaving my car out on the drive way over night. Is this common in other areas in Dallas?
Not sure if crime is really worse but I do know that the perception of crime and life threatening weather events is worse. It seems like we are always on guard for threats to our lives. I don't remember being this on edge even a few years ago. I don't think people can continue to live on edge forever, not sure how to get off the merry go round.
People don't trust each other anymore because we have all been divided. Communities have been broken up. I know it's not PC to say this but people feel more comfortable with their own race, religion, and backgrounds. Once you mix all of them up, distrust goes up the roof.

Also since 9/11 the social engineering of the USA has been to get you scared and in a constant state of panic.

Stop watching the news and you'll feel a lot better.

Personally, I haven't watched the news in a couple of decades. Sometimes I have it on to get to the weather but not too often.

By the way, those shows called, for example, CNN News or Fox News...... thats not really news. Those are shows with NEWS in the name. I don't watch those either. If I have the choice to watch the news or porn..... I think you can see which I'd rather watch. :) But give me some Live PD and I'm there! ;)

I agree, do't watch the "news", but the paranoia is pretty much all around, at the gym, at the store, at the school, public venues, on our travels. There is a distrustful feeling all around these days.

I just spent four hours in Grapevine walking around with hundreds of ppl outside for Mayfest. It was wonderful.

I used to have to drive through South Dallas every Friday at 11pm for work.. it was also not too bad..

I’d be interested in seeing real statistics of crime. Maybe I should be more worried, but I’m just not.

Dallas has seemed incredibly safe, kind, and well, Southern, to me since I moved here.

I have noticed the customer service getting worse.. but I think it’s because millennials don’t know how to be happy..sigh.

The news amplifies this fear and like someone said I spend zero time watching the news because it can make it seem like crime is way more common than it really is.

I moved here 2 years ago and never felt any type of danger.

I will see you guys at 4.

Sorry, had a bad delivery at 4:30 in Alverado. Got them set up and washer didn't work. Reset the computer, ran a test on it.... drain pump still coming on everytime I plug it in. After awhile I got it working.... yay! Got home and.... they called to say the dryer isn't heating! WTF? I never have trouble and both washer and dryer to the same customer. Makes me look really bad to a customer but.... It's 10:35pm and made it home. Maybe next time during November/ December/January/February when there is no racing. Glad y'all had a good time :)

I am new to the Forum and would definitely meetup anytime in the DFW area with like-minded TMF people! As luck would have it, when you had your last meetup in May, I was on a long road trip listening to TMF for the first time. Eye-opening to say the least!
I'll get one going end of Aug or beginning of Sep. Just put it in the calendar to figure it out then.

I recently broke my ankle pretty good, and I won't be out and about for 4-6 weeks.

Hope you heal up fast!

Looking forward to meetup, let me know if there is anything I can do to help organize when the time comes.

Looking Forward to the meetup in August!

For Fort Worth people, I've been thinking about setting up a bi-weekly/monthly get together in NRH; because young people in the area could really benefit from connecting and seeing progress regularly (and I've already been kinda doing it with some friends for the past while anyways).

PM me for more info.

Unfortunately I will be out of town this coming Sunday. I hate to miss it, but I look forward to the next one.

Are most of the DFW people closer to Dallas or Ft. Worth?

I am flexible during the week too, for a late afternoon or early evening happy hour, or even breakfast or lunch....

Alright, here's what we have so far,

for sure:
myself

maybe:
@RemoteFox (whom will drive 6 hours for this)
I have 2 friends that want to drop in

Things are better with friends
I know theres a lot of people that may be trying, but struggling. They could be spinning their wheels, or some of them could even have everything ready but may be struggling with cold calls.

I want everybody to come together because this will be a great experience. Meeting other fastlane entrepreneurs, networking, and realizing that you're not alone.

Once again, if you'd like to be there, let me know.

Whenever someone makes it happen.

Probably me, and probably in August.
