- Networking is just about passing out a bunch of business cards – NOT TRUE. In fact, the cards you GET are more important than the cards you GIVE.
- Networking is just for extroverts who can flit around the room talking to everyone – NOT TRUE. Introverts can actually be more effective networkers.
- Networking is just for people in business – NOT TRUE. Networking is about RELATIONSHIP BUILDING, which is valuable to everyone.

This Lunch and Learn is a program of the Hillsborough / Orange County Chamber of Commerce and will be hosted by Randy Bernstein of Etch 'n Stitch. From Randy,
"I first began formal networking about 4 years ago, after being invited to a local networking meeting. At first, I would hand out business cards to everyone and try my hardest to sell my products. Needless to say, it didn't work.
After some research, training courses, and just plain old common sense, I've learned that networking is about DEVELOPING RELATIONSHIPS, not just passing out a bunch of business cards. I've learned that it's about GIVING, not RECEIVING. And, I've learned some great techniques to be a successful networker. As a result, the majority of my business comes from my networking relationships through referrals.
I'm thrilled to have this opportunity to share these lessons with you to help you become a more successful networker."
