If you depend on a robust network and continuing to grow it so you can make strong connections and help others do the same, don’t stop networking.
It is an absolute must you continue to meet new people and expand your sphere of influence, so keep meeting people.
I met 15 new people at the Raleigh Chamber‘s Virtual Business hours at the beginning of the month, and recently had a virtual coffee with one of them. It turns out she’s pretty amazing, we have a lot in common and can likely refer one another within our existing networks. In fact, I’m going to ask her to join a panel at my October Women Inspiring Women Conference.
Don’t let this situation keep you from connecting and thoughtfully growing your network. There’s just no reason for it.
