In my travels around the area and speaking to local business people, some are feeling nervous about the current financial climate.
Some businesses are powering along but others are struggling and are starting to feel insecure.
This is when meeting others in business can be reassuring. Many business people have survived past turbulent times and it can be comforting for new business people to meet these stalwarts who show that you can not only survive but thrive!
Networking is invaluable in these times. Not only for the personal confidence it can bring about your business, it can mean you meet people with new ideas, or even old ideas that have worked for them in the past!
Never be frightened to be honest about how your business is actually travelling. How can anyone ever help you in your business if they don’t really know what your challenges are?
Stand up, get out and start networking within your local area now..and don’t forget to have fun!
Networking is supposed to be fun, it doesn’t have to be serious all the time. It makes you and your business even more memorable.
