Try to get out and meet a new contact every week that could potentially help you take your small business to the next level. It could be a buyer, a supplier, a future partner or angel investor, your banker, a potential mentor or a contact for your website or upcoming endeavor.
Meeting with just one person a week means that you have added fifty-two people to your circle. You don’t need to spend a lot of time: a coffee works very well and shows the person you are inviting that you respect their time, too. Try it, and bring you business card that contains all the pertinent info on your business and web address.
