In our corporate jobs networking was important for Susan and I. Now we have our own business it's still important. We just find we're doing it differently. Being just the two of us we don't have those day-to-day workplace networking opportunities. We've had to replace them with a solid mix of proactive face-to-face and online networking.
The biggest revelation for us has been to power of the small business networks.
When you start you own small business you initially become the master of everything. It's you doing the planning, the sales, the marketing, the accounts, the product development. Everything. What you soon realise is you need to be able to get some support and assistance from others. The great thing about small business networks is they understand what it's like. And they are so willing to assist and share their learnings and expertise with you. All you have to do is ask.
Just a quick reminder of why networking is important?
