Founders 55

2nd Tuesday of every month from 5:30 – 7:00PM at The Tranel Financial Group

Founders 55 is a monthly group of abundant and bold thinking men, women, entrepreneurs and leaders who want to solve a great problem in the world. The name comes from our original 55 Founding Fathers and the goal is to have 55 in the group. This NFP group is composed of exponential thinkers who are passionate about making a difference in the world. We feel the world’s greatest problems are the world’s greatest opportunities.

We just completed a HeroX, crowdsourcing competition and our winner determined the problem for financial illiteracy in the United States. He was awarded a cash prize. Next our group is looking to remember history by fundraising to erect a monument to reflect the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence. This celebration of history initiative is called the Charters of Freedom and will be launched soon. For more information on this group you can visit us at

Freedom One Networking

Every Thursday 7:15-8:30 AM  at The Tranel Financial Group, Libertyville

Every Wednesday 7:15-8:30 AM at the Northern Lakes Art Collective, Mundelein

If you want to grow your business – Freedom One Networking is the place you want to be, business to business networking at its finest! Come and grow your business with a dynamic group that wants to help you succeed. This is a free group and all we ask is that you are a part of a chamber or community organization. 

It’s all about getting involved, getting known, and making an impact in the community. The event flows with a brief opening, chamber news, charity shout outs and then onto introductions or what is known as the 24/7.

Introducing yourself using twenty-four words in seven seconds or less. Next is the business share where one business each week gets to show case their business to the group. Lastly, we end with an Ultimate Resource. This section is designed to enrich the group and give them meaningful takeaways to help them grow both themselves personally and their businesses. 

A couple of helpful tips to be successful at this networking group:

  • Bring lots of business cards - you will be brought up at the end of the event and people will want to connect with you.
  • Get a 24/7 card when you check in and fill it out. It will help you during your introduction and impress the group.
  • Arrive at 7:15. The parking gets full fast and being early is a great way to connect with the main networkers ahead of time.
  • Plan to stay till 9:00. Meeting rooms are available afterwards and many members stay and network.
  • Join the group outside of Thursday for charity events and fun gatherings. A little community involvement goes a long way.
