I’ve heard time and again that, “your network is your net worth.”
Loosely translated, that means that introverts like me can’t get what we want by staying at home. We need to get out there and meet people to build relationships, make contacts, get new clients, and, well…just get out of the house.
My freelance business gave me the opportunity to attend a local Chamber of Commerce meeting last night, and it was a joy!
I’ve honestly never been in a room with quite so many friendly faces who were ready and willing to chat, exchange business cards, and help get people connected.
As a freelance writer, it’s all too easy to get comfortable with our living rooms and our pajamas. But we all need to get up, step out and enjoy the world beyond our laptops.
