Networking Tip!

Keep up on the week’s local business news.  It can be a great ice-breaker and discussion topic as you mix-and-mingle, especially if you’re going to an industry-specific event.  There are a lot of great newsletters out there and you can't go wrong with the BBJ’s daily Morning & Afternoon Editions.  They're free too!

SEE YOU OUT THERE!!!
