Want To Do More Business? Get Out and Attend That Business Networking Event

As a business consultant, I often talk with businesses owners and salespeople about the importance of networking: basically getting out and meeting people. Unfortunately many people aren’t too positive about the whole idea. They tell me it’s a lot of work, they don’t know what to say and they won’t know anyone at the event. I would say yes to a couple of them—it does take work and you might not know anyone. But as Woody Allen once said, “90% of success is just showing up.”
