Do you want to get your name out there and get involved in events + networking groups but you just can't seem to find any in your area?
Some days I can ask around, post on Facebook, Google, and I just can't seem to find any events going on in my city for my business to participate in.
I do have one route though that never fails to produce not only amazing events but unmatched business opportunities as well.
On the second Wednesday morning of every month I attend a local networking group for women called Polka Dot Powerhouse.If you don't have this group if your area yet there are two things you can do.
1) Start a Polka Dot Powerhouse Chapter
(or see if there is already one in your area)
2) Join another women based networking group in your area
Not having an all women's networking group in your area isn't an excuse because starting one is super easy!
…and the reason I recommend Polka Dot Powerhouse so highly isn't because of their super cute name. It's because out of the networking groups I've been to Polka Dot Powerhouse is unmatched. Every single woman in the group is positive, drama free, helpful, and we're all there to generate true friendships and help each other's businesses thrive!
Not to mention you get to do fun things like “Speed Networking,” which is like speed dating but in networking form 😀
Now I know most people would describe me as outgoing but truth is I'm actually quite introverted. I have to really pump myself up to get out of my cozy at home work clothes and venture to one of these meetings…
…and the funny thing is…
I LOVE it every single time.
There hasn't been one meeting yet where I haven't left with amazing connections, loads of events happening in the next month, formed at least one great partnership, etc.
The last meeting I attended I almost didn't go because I was so busy with in office things. I made myself go and I ended up making so many connections! I learned about tons of events we could participate in and…
…the best part is I've attended 3 meetings and photographed 12+ people in the networking group so far!
So now it's your time to get out there, pump yourself up, make friends, and soar high!
Love and High Fives!
