Making Lasting Connections
Engaging with your community is the best way to gain new clientele (and friends)! Connecting with your peers and coworkers makes for a great work environment. Plus, we all know the not-so-secret rule – “it’s not what you know it’s who you know”) Though that may be a hard pill to swallow, it is pretty true. Don’t get us wrong you do need to know a lot about your career field, but the people you know in it can make life a whole lot easier, plus it’s a blast getting to know others! 🙂 So chat with everyone you come in contact with, put in a little effort and make those lasting connections wherever you may be!

Attending work-related events is a great way to meet people interested or already working in your career field! Meeting someone at a place like this is an easy way to strike up a career-driven conversation or get to know your neighbor!
Go grab a coffee or a quick bite to eat with a new friend on your break! This allows you to take a break from the hard work and get to know someone new all at the same time!
Social media is a huge part of todays communication so it is important to take part in that as well! Use social media to your advantage!
