Time to Start Networking

 

Networking is so big. Bigger than I really ever thought it would be for HBI. Networking is what has launch this little start-up from solopreneuer style business to a small group of 4 people and a dog doing cool sh*t for people everyday.

I think there is fear of networking sometimes. I'm not sure why, but I have always been so hesitant to network and put myself out there. It's kind of scary. However, every time I leave some kind of networking event, I always leave so inspired and happy I went. Sometimes it leads to connections that I am so glad I made. 

It's hard to network if we are not in the same city but if you are in KC here are some organizations and upcoming networking events.
