I tell ya, March is a ok month by me! It’s Women’s History Month, Doula Week, and it’s also the birth month of a very close mom friend, my dad, sister and niece.
Now the real fun begins. My daughter is in FBLA (Future Business Leaders Of America)
Right now, they are raising money for their conference next month and so am I. In honor of Women’s History Month! Why, because, it’s my hope that she along with the other female members will be very soon.

Top Ten TIPS
1 Take 20 or more business cards
2 Have your elevator pitch ready
3 Listen as well as talk
4 The person you are speaking with may not directly relate, but may know someone who does
5 If you don’t know of the other person’s prior business or what it does, ask them to clarify – Otherwise you might miss an opportunity
6 Take notes about the speaker on the back of their business card – Don’t be offended if you see someone writing on the back of yours, this is good for jogging memory!
7 Exchange Business Cards with each network partner
8 Aim to network further with people you haven’t met before
9 If you know you want to speak to someone again, arrange to follow up with an email or call to ensure that they remember you
10 The cardinal rule is to follow up if you said you would
