Tomorrow I’m heading out to Lima, Ohio for the 5th Annual Social Media Week Lima conference. I’m extra excited because it’s only two hours from home (I don’t have to fly!), I finally get to meet someone I’ve known online for a few years, and it’s the perfect size event for networking! Not too large, not to small, but just right!
Networking use to intimidate the heck out of me. Especially when I’d attend an event where I didn’t know more than one or two people tops – much like this one. What do I say? what do I do? How do I act? What if they don’t like me? Those were the things that went through my head and, sometimes, prevented me from networking at all. But that was then, and this is now.
