I attended my first networking event tonight, held by the Pepperell Business Association at the Conway Chevrolet Dealership. There were a few people there that I knew, and several faces that I recognized. And, though it was an informal event, I found it a bit intimidating at first. After I had the opportunity to make some smalltalk with some of the business owners from around town I started to feel a bit more comfortable.
I am looking forward to attending more of these events and to getting to be more connected to the town in which we do business. I think getting more involved in these events will be great for my business and career in town.
