So, it's November. While I'm not a big fan of the colder temperatures and the possibility of snow, I love the energy of this month. There is always lots on the go in the way of community events and opportunities to connect with people in my network.
From professional associations to nonprofit organizations to education and development offerings, you could be out every night of the week. To maximize your time and your budget, it is important to plan ahead.
- Are there events that come around this season that only happen once a year?
- Which events draw the people that could help move your career or business forward in the next 6 months?
- What style of event offers the best opportunity to build or continue relationships with important people in your network?
With some preparation, you can make the most of this pre-holiday season. Regardless of what else is going on, relationships will always be the key driver of business. Invest accordingly.
