Wow! Where does the time go? It seems like the days just fly by and I'm always trying to play catch-up on the many projects and ideas I have going. I really enjoy writing this blog, but sometimes I feel there are just not enough hours in the day to accomplish all.
I had a very interesting conversation with a few people recently regarding networking and networking groups that I thought I would share. Some people are just so turned off by the whole networking group idea that they just won't hire you because you are part of a networking group. Even though your work is excellent, you provide great service and your prices are fair, they still won't hire you because you are part of a group and they feel it's unethical. This just makes no sense to me. They like you, your work, etc., but won't hire you because you belong to a networking group? I don't really think it matters whether you belong to a networking group or not. We all network. If you belong to a group, good for you. I hope it's helping you in your business. I think what matters is the work, the service, the price. They should all be top notch and fair. Remember if you are going to recommend someone you are in essence putting yourself and your reputation on the line. Recommend only those that you feel are worthy of it and you in turn make sure your work is worthy of a recommendation.
The photo up top is that of dinner two nights ago. It was so, so good. It was an herb rubbed chicken with spinach, tomatoes and a balsamic wine reduction. Delicious!
See ya next time.
