Networking-everybody talks about it, but do you know how to do it right? Networking expert Dee Helfgott says networking is people connecting with people-exchanging ideas, information and resources. Try her networking tips:

  • Prepare a 30-second introduction of who you are, what you do and how your business benefits others. It should be long enough to convey information but short enough so it's not a sales pitch.
  • Volunteer for a small role on a committee of an important organization or association. This gives you visibility and will gain you respect.
  • Listen more than you talk. That's the best way to get information that may help you.
  • Don't forget to network outside your group. You never know who knows someone who may need your product or service.
