NETWORK! NETWORK! NETWORK!
I cannot emphasize enough how crucial networking is for small business. Take every opportunity to share ideas, knowledge and to be seen. This is your chance to build connections and could lead to the Golden Goose of small business – referrals. Make a good impression and it’s more than likely a referral will come your way.
I wouldn’t consider myself an A-Type personality and you don’t have to be one to network so put that fear of being a networking social wallflower to rest because if you believe in your business, you will have plenty to talk about. Networking has landed me some amazing referral opportunities I likely would have missed out on if I had avoided this key business strategy. – Janice
