I've been ramping up my event schedule this year and I have put together 5 insanely awesome networking tips and 3 networking blunders you must avoid at all costs. These tips will help you to make genuine connections that will turn into long term friendships and business relationships. I'm fired up about this one and can NOT wait to share with you!
