Networking in your local community is one of the best ways to grow your small business.
Networking and referrals are the main way that I have grown my website design business in San Diego since 2006. There are a ton of local groups that you can become involved with. You will find meetings at all times of day...some meet for breakfast, some for lunch, and some have an after dinner / cocktail feel. One group I attend says, “Never eat alone!”
Of course you want to grow your own business, and yet... the best way to do so is to look for opportunities to help other people! It’s really a Win-Win situation... as you are on the lookout for referrals for other professionals, they are on the lookout for referrals for you!
