According to experts it takes just 3 seconds for someone to decide if they like you or want to do business with you. That means you want to get it right, as you never know which connection could be incredibly important to your future.
No one ever said networking is easy, but it is easier than it used to be! Nothing beats face-to-face networking, but social media has made the rest of it much more manageable.
Networking used to take a lot more work. For each contact you'd have to make a phone call, send them a letter, or run into them at an event. Now you can Snapchat them, connect on LinkedIn, respond to their Tweet...You get the idea. But now that there are so many more connections available to you, you need to figure out how to manage them!
What a great night at an amazing venue with an even better crowd!
The BizX community came together last night, shared drinks and stories, enjoyed awesome food and networked the night away at the Hub in Tacoma!
Can we just go ahead and say it? BizX knows how to throw a party, and the 550 that came last night can attest to that. It’s a good thing we have a year to think about how we can out-do ourselves for next year’s holiday party.
Take a moment, re-live the wonderment and take in the brilliance that is the BizX community in all its splendor. When that many entrepreneurs, business owners and all around incredible people get together, magic is sure to happen. There were literally too many amazing, awesome, wild things last night to mention them all. But I’m going to try anyways, so here goes.
