It’s been nearly two years since I first started working for myself. I thought I’d share some of my experience, what works, what doesn’t and more. Here's my view on 'real' networking, not social. Everyone knows that networking is vital to business. We live in a world where it really is about who you know and not just what you know. So much so, there’s a whole industry around networking. In fact there are so many groups to choose from it’s difficult to know where to start. Some charge a membership, some are just breakfast clubs, some are associated to chambers of commerce or the federation of small business, you name it there’s a group for it.
