Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting with these beautiful ladies for the First Success Creators Monthly Meetup at the new Mad Cow Grill restaurant in Laurel. We discussed career goals, post retirement plans, and steps to progressively make a career transition. We also talked about business development, licensing for business, international trade, and resources for Small Business Owners. The conversation then turned to home ownership, counseling for new homebuyers and real estate investment.
We met one of the owners of Mad Cow Ed Reynosa. He’s of Dominican and Peruvian descent and incorporates all of those flavors in his cooking. His partner is of Jamaican descent and brings the spicy, delicious Jamaican Flavors. He was extremely nice and graciously posed for a picture with us.
The restaurant staff was very accommodating and attentive. We arrived on Saturday at 4pm for the Happy Hour. The specials for appetizers and drinks are great! We ordered Salmon, Jerk Chicken, and the Ox Tails. Overall the menu is very reasonable and the food and drinks were superb!
Everyone gets hot coco shots with the meals. Loved it!!! I highly recommend this spot for events and casual dining with friends.
The next Success Creators Meet Up will be at Swahili Village for African Cuisine in April! We are also partnering with EmpowerU Career Coaching, LLC and Microsoft to provide a hands on Linked In Training at the Microsoft Theater in Tyson’s Corner. Join us and let Success Creators help you navigate your pathway to Success! Join our Meet Up Group for more info: http://meetu.ps/c/2LrbX/2C3tp/a
