Networking in Rutherford County

Networking in Rutherford County

Business attire, coffee, small talk, introductions, name tags, elevator speeches, public speaking.
Most of these things give me a not-so-slight bout of anxiety (not the coffee of course). It can be daunting for someone just starting out in the business world to figure out which group is right for them. This post is here to help. I have written up my best advice for networking and compiled a list below of networking opportunities in the area.
Should you even attend regular networking groups?
Of course! If you have the time networking groups can be a cost-effective way to get the word out about your business.
There is a secret to effectively being a member of a networking group though. That secret is that you don’t just show up, pass out your cards and leave. You should develop RELATIONSHIPS with the people in your group.
Why?
Well, even if someone you meet may not ever have a need for your business, they can pass your name to others. You never know how that person sitting next to you can help you out. You just have to get to know them first!
 Meeting people and visiting networking groups is a wonderful way to jumpstart your customer base. It really helped put me in front of a lot of people that later turned into lasting friendships and business opportunities.
