I am actually struggling to name this one, if I am being totally honest, I am not 100% sure what it is about. Over the last couple of months I have been in contact with some extraordinary people, all of whom are local. They have all been striving for similar goals; most are self-employed; granted in some very different fields of work. But, they all help each other and find ways to work with one another making themselves and our local community so much stronger.
When I stepped in I thought to myself, I am an author… What could I possibly have to offer them? I forgot one of the key things in cross marketing. I need locations to do events, and the local cafes, like the fabulous Coffee Rio need a draw to bring in foot-traffic, so on, so forth. I need gimmick food, there is a fabulous bakery called Buttercream Bakery who can supply that, and in return they get sales, recognition and repeat business, as do Coffee Rio…
However all this transcends mere business arrangements, I have had so much support emotionally from everyone there and I could not begin to tell you what an incredible group of people I have stumbled upon. I don’t mind admitting that public speaking is not my strong point, but there I am in a safe environment where I can hone that skill and learn how to deal with it.
I walked into Networking hoping that it would help me make sales and meet some good connections and people, but doubting that it was where I needed to be. I have never been so wrong… If you find the right group to network in, like I have with Love Hinckley and The Atkins Networking Group Hinckley, they sky is the limit on what you can achieve.
I could carry on for days about the wonderful people who attend these networking meetings! However, it might be easier to show you…
