Networking can be a weak point for many entrepreneurs. Sometimes entrepreneurs get so caught up in the day to day aspects of their business that they forget that networking is one of the easiest ways to grow their business. Maelisa and Amber are expert networkers who occasionally need some accountability to get things done. This is why they are excited to announce their June Networking Accountability Challenge. This challenge will happen live on Facebook every Thursday in June at noon PST starting June 7. Feel free to pop into the Facebook group with questions.

There is value in meeting people in person
Sometimes introverts have an aversion to networking in person. Many online business owners don’t think there is much reason for them to attend in-person networking events and prefer to network online. But there is real value in meeting people in person. You have different kinds of discussions in-person than online. The online space is inundated with distractions so meeting people face to face can provide a deeper connection. Join the networking challenge to prioritize networking and grow your business. Listen to this episode of My Biz Bestie to hear more about how you can join the Network Accountability Challenge and get some great networking tips as well.
Choose a weekly item to focus on
Networking is a big topic and can mean several different things. During this networking challenge, choose an item to focus on weekly. This could be attending one live networking event a week, sending out an email to someone you haven’t contacted in awhile, or meeting someone new each week. Think about what your networking intentions are to help guide you in your weekly focus. The Networking Accountability Challenge will help you stay on track and realize your networking goals. Listen to this episode of My Biz Bestie to hear fantastic tips on how to focus your networking goals.
Networking should be fun
So many people dread networking. If this is you, then change what you are doing. Networking should be fun. When you make networking something you look forward to, then you won’t hesitate to do it. Find a Meet-up with like-minded people and do things you enjoy. There is a benefit in simply meeting new people. When you invest in people and build relationships you invest in yourself and your business.
