  • My biggest and best tip - BE CONSISTANT! Do you best to put yourself out there EVERYDAY! Even if it's just for an hour a day, get out there...

  • Volunteer at networking events. Not only will you not have to pay, but you will speak with a lot more people.


    Practice your elevator speech before you go.


    Bring lots of calling/business cards or handbills.


    Ask before adding someone to your Linkedin network.

  • 5.See if you can do a fundraiser for your school or a charity you support-you help others while getting your name out there and get to meet more people! 6.Ask for leads! "a friend of a friend" someone always knows someone else! 7. Take pride in what you do and be truly happy about it-others will see this and be just as excited as you are 8. I hold a happy hour once a month for me and my girlfriends. We network and support each other! By doing so we increase our sales and support one another with getting the word out about their businesses too!
