Consider what would happen if you treated your business as a full-time gig?
When you stop treating networking events as a selfish activity, (think take take take) you will probably get more business! Jarrod Goldsmith (Founder, eSAX)

This week on Ask the Fedora: Follow Up With Everyone After a Networking Event!
Welcome to another exciting episode of Ask The Fedora. I’m your host, Jarrod Goldsmith.
Let’s say you’re at a networking event, but you met someone a month ago, but you forgot to follow up with them. Go up to them! Say to them, “Hi … We met at the last event and I’m really sorry, but I haven’t had a chance to follow up with you. Can we still go for coffee?” At least acknowledge that you didn’t have the time to meet with them. This is a good exercise – take the time to follow up with everyone you’ve met, even if you’re not sure you’d do business with them. If you forget it make for an embarrassing conversation next time, but suck it up.
Thanks for watching. Happy Networking!
