Does Networking Make You Nervous?
Me too. In fact, I avoided networking for a very long time. I only did it when it was absolutely necessary. As someone who works from home, it’s so easy to just stay home inside my shell so to speak.
The first group (and only group) I joined when I first started my business was a local group of Virtual Assistants – the Golden Horseshoe Virtual Assistants. I’m still a member of this group to this day and find these members to be a wonderful support system and sounding board for my business. And having such a variety of members who specialize in different areas is an added bonus when you have a project that is not something you do or particularly enjoy.
