Networking-to join a Business networking team or not

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Access

I am told joining a Business Networking team is a great idea. My good friend Kristin formed one. She's doing great. My good friend Frank belongs to one and is doing great too. I even got to join him as a guest recently but I'm not entirely convinced it is worth the $400 to join?  If anyone out there reads my blog and would kindly give me some feedback, I would greatly appreciate it.

I want to get out there and meet new people, get referrals and make some money..

Hello Leti and welcome to AR!  KM is one cool chicka so I know you are in good company.  My advice is to spend some time reading and getting to know other bloggers.  There are a lot of helpful people here.

You are doing a fabulous-o job.  You are commenting on your own blog right now.  That's what folks do though, you comment to their comment on your blog then you find one of their blog posts that is of interest to you and comment on it.  Hopefully not all in one sentence like my last one ; ).  So, find Monica's blog & go leave a comment on it like she did to yours.  She had a her first post featured today (she got a gold star & on the front page of AR).  Love, K

I tried to come over last night to give you a Congratulations on your blog and to say Welcome but AR was acting  up last night and I kept getting an ERROR Message. Also if Kiistin forgot to tell you we are having a Tailgate Party tonite to open the SPURS season; drop by and blog-along with us.  We are on Texas Real Estate, Lone Star and All Things Texas and Hill Country Inspector.

See ya at the party and a Big Texas Welcome.

Hola Leti!  I wish you the best in your career!  There are a lot of opportunities to network that don't cost you money.  Looking back, I spent money on many things I shouldn't have.  Be picky.....and do what feels right to you.

Best wishes!
