Networking events – If you aren’t at them then you are missing out.
Sure, I’ve been to a few duds. But more often than not, I have met some very interesting people and formed some good connections. They are opportunities to help one another forward our lives, business and career. This could be in the form of joint ventures, creating opportunities for talking at events or recommending a mentor for you.
- Don’t think of it in direct correlation of networking = sales if you are in business.
- Do offer something you can do for the other person when you make a connection. We all have something to offer – it is a two way connection.
