Last year I decided to change a few of my systems and forms of networking so that I looked less into ‘networking events’ and focused more on relationship building. The results, both personally and professionally, have been profound. It’s been a great year and I’ve been blessed to better know some really great people.
So I was invited to this wedding industry networking event last night and I almost went…for several reasons, but the foremost was that it was formatted in a ‘speed dating’ style where you sit down with everyone for a few minutes for some ‘speed networking.’ Not that I thought a few quick minutes with these people would really provide deep and meaningful connections or stimulate the desire for others to want to build anything with me, but more so because it simply sounded fun.
I didn’t end up going. But I had prepared a little 3×5 card to hand people instead of my business card, with the Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Want to Get to Know Me. Again, not that I was expecting much from this, but thought it’d be fun and better for people to get to know me better once they went home and read my fabulous reasoning behind wanting to know myself. So I extend this invitation for you to want to get to know me…enjoy!
