How to make somebody's day and not even know it!

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Redwood Realty License # 0225028579

Have you ever been to a party or a networking event and felt awkward and totally out of your element?  On several occasions, I have gone to networking events and tried to meet people only to be iced out.  It's super stressful and made me question why exactly I went.


Not long after those disasters, I read that when networking, find the person who is standing by themselves and introduce yourself.  Chances are they are feeling the same way. I knew I could do that!  And I could pull people into a conversation who look lost or have them sit at lunch with the group.

Fast forward to last week.  I was having coffee with a lender who started our conversation with how much it meant to him that I visited him at a vendor fair when nobody else did....months and months ago.  

What would our world look like if we all included one more person?

Yes indeed. Networking events and parties can be awkward when we don't know anyone. Going up to the person who is alone can definitely work!

Even though I am incredibly social, I often find myself hanging back and just seeing who might come up to me, haha.

Nancy, not in the habit of going to networking events anymore, but this is a good idea to remember.
