I founded New Jersey Young Professionals in 2004 after relocating within NJ. I now have 5,000+ dues paying Members on my Ning website and 11,000 Young Professionals on the mailing list. Only two short years after starting the group, I was able to quit my job and manage my community organization FULL TIME. Currently, I am still self-employed and loving every minute of it! Now my goal is to help others do the same! - Laura Occhipinti, Laura@GrowYourSocialGroup.com
