Networking Tips

One of my hobbies lately has really become networking with Cleveland and Akron area businesses both large and small. I came across this article recently and feel it has some value...The following excerpt is a favorite of mine:

Root Canal = Connections.
Even though you may dread having your tooth drilled, you never know who you might meet at the dentist's office—or at the post office or grocery store, for that matter. While it's tempting to rush through your daily errands, everyday situations such as these can become networking situations if you bring business cards with you and remain open to meeting people. Simply strike up a conversation with the person sitting next to you or offer your services to your dentist if he happens to mention that he's looking for someone to redesign his business card and website. Even if these conversations don't lead to immediate work, the people you meet may eventually introduce you to new clients.
