So here’s my rule. As much as I love meeting people, online and offline, as much as I love connecting with new souls, I will only meet people who genuinely give a sh#t about what I do. I will only meet people who want to have a real conversation, get to know me, and let an organic relationship grow.
I wasn’t going to say anything but, I’ve been asked a few times over the course of the last few months to attend networking events/groups. At least five different events all with more or less the same objective.
Network. Connect. Meet new people. Expand your contact list… or something like that!

It’s not personal, it just is.
