Hello everyone,

As a fellow searcher in the Kansas City area, I'm sure you can relate to the ups and downs of the search process. Unfortunately, I'm currently in a bit of a downswing despite my best efforts to keep a positive outlook. So far, I've submitted 3 LOIs (5 if you count the two times I tried to buy the family business), but haven't had any luck yet.

I'm sure there are others out there who have had similar experiences, so I wanted to reach out and see if there's any interest in connecting with other current searchers, successful searchers, investors, brokers, or bankers in the area. It might be helpful to share our experiences, swap tips and advice, and support each other through the search process.

I'd love to meet individually over a cup of coffee (or your preferred beverage). If there's enough interest, maybe we could even set up a formal group meet-up. I know the idea has been tossed around a couple of times, so let's get this on the calendar and make it happen!

Looking forward to hearing from you all and hopefully connecting soon.
