As a new business owner I find that I am constantly learning new things. No amount of schooling can fully prepare you for everything you will face once you take the step to create your own business. I often find myself researching online, reading and learning from others, and teaching myself helpful ways to improve things such as productivity, marketing, and efficiency.
Despite whatever amount of infallable knowledge or talent you possess it can still be disheartening when you realize no one has heard of you or your business. Without making a name for your business it is unlikely that it will grow beyond a few customers. More importantly, it will make it hard for you to be veiwed as the specialist or true professional you are. This is where networking can help
"It is not WHAT you know, it is WHO you know" A quote that in itself depicts the utter honesty of creating a flurishing business, as well as the importance of networking. In order to grow, you need your name to be heard. The world of networking can help you do just that.
Where can you find a world of people trying to connect with a specific objective or desire in mind? A network. Create a name for yourself. Meet new people, new possible clients. Meet suppliers and other vendors. Make friends, aquaintences, and other people in your field. Mingle, teach, and learn from others. Help and be helped.
This is why I joined TyingTheKnott.com, in an attempt to break into the world of networking.
