MBO Members at the Monthly Business Mingle
The My Branch Office’s first monthly business mingle was a huge success! Over 20 people were in attendance and had an incredible time. With the fabulous host, Janet Giorgio of Giorgio’s Ristorante, she provided an amazing array of appetizers, and incredible meal, and plenty wine and soft drinks. The event provided an amazing place to meet business clients in a casual, friendly, and easygoing environment. The intimate group created a great opportunity to meet and greet, but also create real bonds with other businesses. Everyone met everyone else by the end of the night. Founder, Jim McGuire, made a few opening remarks and then introduced his phenomenal team, who helped put the event together. After Jim’s remarks, there was a round robin introduction, where everyone was given 60 seconds to introduce themselves and give a business pitch. There was also a raffle going on during the event.Three members of My Branch Office, including Cecil Cates, Mary Jo DeFranco, and her husband, all won fantastic prizes. With everyone so thoroughly enjoying themselves people lost track of the time. While the fun event was scheduled from 5:30pm until only 8pm, it lasted until almost 9pm. The My Branch Office Staff is so thankful for everyone and for the amazing evening. Everyone had an fantastic time.
New Member: Sean Richway, Infinity Capital Finance
MyBranchOffice is excited to announce that Sean Richway, President of Infinity Capital Finance, has joined the SOMA One community. Sean’s company is based in Maryland, but he partnered with a local real estate company (All In One) to create a new joint venture company, CFRE Investment Flips. After looking at numerous coworking spaces, CFRE Investments Flips found the best value at My Branch Office. From the time he signed the Executive Monthly membership, it took only a few hours to get Sean’s business completely settled and fully operational. My Branch Office even set up a company phone number and website for CFRE Investments Flips (cfrejvflips.com). By the end of the CFRE Investments Flips had a private office in the SOMA One Suite, which included 4 desks, wired and wireless Internet access, desk phones, and access to the member lounge and kitchen. CFRE Investment Flips is a “direct private money lender that provides financing through loans secured by non-owner occupied residential real estate.” Sean’s website, infinitycapitalfinance.com, states that his business is one based on having the “flexibility to accommodate most scenarios with the intent of ensuring the success of the borrower,” Sean needed a space to accommodate those scenarios. Now he can use our flexibility to his customers’ advantage. Through the amazing value of My Branch Office, this out of state company was able to find a home in South Orange.
