Turning up at local business networking events is good, especially when your picture is on the front cover of the local business magazines ! I must admit I never imagined my picture would make it to the front cover of any magazine, but this happened at a local business networking event which was fun and worth my time and money.
Some advantages for getting out of the office for a change for a few hours:
- Meeting other small business owners, who are as enthusiastic as you are!
- You learn something new each time from talking to people.
- Guest speakers provide valuable information to help your business.
- Enjoy a nice meal!
- Enjoy time out from work day stress.
- Establish new contacts.
- Maybe if you’re lucky – win a prize or get your photo in the business magazine!
Have a great week!
