Networking events are a valuable entrepreneurial tool which is highly under utilized by too many entrepreneurs. It’s amazing how many people spend 8 months building the next killer app completely in a bubble. Attending networking events will not only give you large amounts of feedback on what your building but also put you in touch with great people that you can potentially have a business relationship with in the future. Working in isolation does not give you this.
Use Twitter, Facebook, and Friendfeed to network? That’s great but you need to know that nothing beats meeting people face to face. You can talk to people that you have known for years online but when you meet them in the person for the first time the connection will massively be strengthened.

    Very clever idea. Now to find time to meet one new person a week!!
    Any advice for “mumpreneurs” who are more often than not trapped at home while everyone else is out networking and have very few opportunities for random face to face encounters?

    Thanks, great question!

    I would check out the times for the different networking events in your area. Depending on where you are located many cities have various times and locations to choose from. You’ll find weekend, early morning, afternoon, after work and even late night events that take place.

    Usually there is a group of entrepreneurs with the same time restraints as yourself so it’s natural that they will create a networking group which is very well suited for both you and them.
