Finding Support

I spend a good part of my day online searching for ways to improve my craft, my sales, my business, my approach, basically, my "all things business and who I am" search - I am an information junkie! In my searches I found these "inside(area-code)" networks. These little networking communities are popping up all over, and more than likely in an area code near you! They offer a springboard type platform for you to immerse yourself into your community, find out what is going on, and who it is happening with. All you have to do is create an account, log on and start your networking, it is that simple and best of all - IT'S FREE!!!!

Did I mention FREE!!!!

With casual posting, you can share about yourself and in turn find out the expertise, and experiences of others. One thing that holds true to most - people love to talk about who they are and what they do. General rule of thumb - People who are successful in what they do, love what they are doing. I am not saying to use this as a mentoring program. Actively search for answers, comment on posts, and ask questions. This is a great wealth of information. Help yourself, after all it is YOUR business.

This is also a great way to meet people in your community, help support your local businesses, and start new friendships.

O.K, I know this has to be coming across as a shameless promtion, and well, I guess I do mean it to be. It has helped me so much, that I want it to help you too!

Here is more information - I hope there is one in your area that you can benefit from!
