Yes, you do need a plan, and I know you have a lot to do, so I can sum this up in two words: SHOW UP.
The most important aspect in networking is to show up. It’s pretty difficult to meet new people and make business connections from your couch. Your confidence is boosted as soon as you walk in the door.
Once you’re there, continue to show up by presenting your best self. Be engaging, listen actively, introduce people, make your mark on every person you come in contact with. It will pay off, trust me.
Get out there and meet some people!!!!!
“You will be the same person in five years as you are today except for the people you meet and the books you read.” ~ Charles “Tremendous” Jones
