The definition of networking is: interacting with other people to exchange information and develop contacts, especially to further one’s career in business.

My networking strategy?
I went with uniquely designed business cards and I have practiced my elevator pitch and brand story.
Who am I?
What do I do?
Who do I help?
Listening is a big part of networking so I thought of questions to ask in order to get people to open up and talk while I can listen and be interested.
I wanted help and advice in the direction of my business.
My clarity strategy:
To watch and observe and listen and ask a lot of questions. What are other people doing right in their business that I can apply to my own

I went to learn new technology and gear and tools to help me create better content.
