6 Tips to Get the Most Out of Networking Events

Have you ever felt that networking events are a waste of time? It’s probably because you aren’t doing them right.

If you’re going to go to a networking event, then NETWORK! Don’t spend time on your phone, don’t sit in the corner by yourself – you can do that at home! Get yourself into a mind frame to engage with others and then actually do it. And make sure you don’t just talk to people you already know. In this episode, Pat outlines a few tips to help you not be boring at networking events and make the most of your time.

Also on this episode:

  • 2024 Planning / Marketing – For most of us 2023 is already over when it comes to our businesses, and it’s time to start looking to 2024. Heather Schaefer, Strategic Branding Coach and Designer for Branding You Big is helping us break down the steps to creating a marketing plan so we’re not left guessing as the year goes forward.
  • Taxes / Income – The tax bracket dollar amounts are changing for 2024, so we brought in Arthur Lee, Owner and Founding Partner of Alliance Tax to explain it all and let us know what we need to do.
  • Legal / Insurance – Agreements, contracts, insurance, oh my! We can all probably agree that talking about legal issues and insurance can be pretty boring, but what you don’t know could put you out of business if you’re not careful.
