There are many networking groups available to business people to make connections with potential clients and businesses. Groups meet for breakfast, lunch or supper. Some groups have an educational component. Most networking groups are based on building relationships with the members in the group so to be successful choose a group that you can attend regularly for two years. If you are looking for a networking group go to the Meetup.com site to find a group in your area.
Some people do find that they don’t have enough time in their day to exercise. Here are 2 ways to combine networking and exercise.
1. Netwalking – Instead of meeting for a coffee , meet while walking. During the good weather walk outside during cooler weather walk inside on tracks, malls hallways. Most malls open early and have mall walking programs.
2. Sweatworking – Fitness clubs are starting networking groups. In this environment you naturally have a common interest, health exercise. This is a more relaxed atmosphere to build relationships with other networkers.
