  • Trade Associations — Involve yourself in trade associations. Networking with others within your industry offers tremendous opportunity. Finding like minded individuals who speak your language and share your passion is extremely beneficial.
  • Business Networking Group — Check out local Business Networking Groups in your area. If you struggle to find a helpful group, maybe this is your opportunity to start one yourself. Here is a link the BNI which is a popular Business Networking Group.
