Kevin Willett believes vacation time is needed, but not the whole summer!
I find that many people take the summer off from networking. I may be biased because I do run two networking groups, but I will do my best to convince you that it is a really bad idea. If you disappear for three or four months it is only natural that people may believe that you went out of business, especially if you are a new business owner. Also you have been working really hard to build relationships through networking and when you take months off from events it can feel like you are starting over again. I suggest that you find time to attend one or two events per month that you really like and find valuable to keep your name out there. If you find that you simply cannot attend events please make sure you are staying in touch with your connections through your newsletter or by emailing them.
