Sarah and I just got back from the monthly Third Tuesday Meetup at the Republic nightclub in downtown Vancouver. Third Tuesday is a meet up of Vancouver marketing and technology professionals. The event is a great way to relax and meet some very interesting and like minded people. If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, then you know that I am big into networking and finding like minded people to associate with. After all, you are who you hang out with.
The speaker for the night was Stephen Jagger, co-founder of Ubertor.com and Reachd.com. His topic was tools to help reduce costs and grow your business. Stephen’s companies are virtual businesses with no bricks and mortar offices to speak off. He shared the tools he used which allowed him to run his business from anywhere in the world.

Yes, Twitter Can Get You Free Drinks
During the Stehpen’s presentation I made a tweet asking for someone to buy me a drink. I figured since I have over 7,000 Twitter followers, some of them must be at Third Tuesday and would love to buy me a drink. Sure enough, someone did. Thanks to Shane Gibson for the Smirnoff Ice. After that success, I just started twittering for drinks all night long. It was totally awesome. I didn’t have to pay for a single drink during the entire evening! I maybe the first person to ever tweeted for a drink inside a nightclub and got it. Another John Chow first! 😀
