Sometimes you wonder if you should bother.
It's cold ... it's raining ... it's dark ... it's a long way to go ... whatever the reasons you might have for not attending a networking event ... just go.
You never know who you might meet.
Sometimes I've felt reluctant about going to a networking event - as well as the "There won't be anyone I know" or "Will it be worth going all the way there ...?" Invariably these events prove to be the MOST successful. You meet several people who are really interested in what you do or who become really good contact or you meet someone you wouldn't have expected.
Even if there are only a handful of people there - you can still meet the ONE person who could make a real difference to your business.
Go with an open attitude.
Look for the opportunities that are right in front of you.
