Networking Success Story - Judith Del Valle-Webb

Networking is, for me, a wonderful way to  advertise who I am and what my business is all about.

I go to  an event, meet great people, and try to connect them with other people as well.

I have always believed that what goes around comes around.

Sharing with those I meet just builds on the positive.

I admit to being tired after a long day and I may have to tell myself that I will just stay a short time if attending an event that night.   Those are the times that have been the most enjoyable. 

You never know who you will meet or who there will know of a person who might need your product or your help

I will always network. Why? Because I enjoy meeting new people and it's a wonderful way to practice my people skills.

 

I believe if you go in with the desire to help someone unselfishly,  then that will happen and in turn they will want to help you.
