    Default Anyone have tips on networking?

    So I'm going to try and network for the first time this Saturday. It's a young entrepreneur / small business session. I'm the shy type, but understand that it's something that needs to be done. And I've always wanted to learn how or at least be comfortable in one.

    Anyone have any tips? It can be a simple one as I'm all ears! I've always relished on other peoples experiences.

    I'm usually antisocial unless I'm required to turn the charm on.

    The easiest way to do it is introduce yourself, then ask them about themselves and keep asking. Just focus on them. People love to talk all about themselves including what they do.
    It sounds like a cliche but it's so true. The more you focus on them, the more they'll remember you. Crazy but true.

    I have to network to be successful at my job. The best way to start a conversation is to have a good ice breaker. Since this is an entrepreneur/small biz networking event, the best way to start a convo is ask question about their business - often I look at the business name located on the name tag - "So what's [name of business] all about?"
