Presenting to the Business Students’ Association of LeMoyne-Owen College about The Importance of Networking was personally and professionally gratifying. I reconnected with someone who remembered me, my why, and my start from nearly 10 years ago! It was such a joy me to share with her and the rest of the attendees some of the networking strategies that have worked best for me. I wouldn’t be able to do all that I do in business or advocacy if it were not for networking. And with National Small Business week and month fast approaching, networking and relationship building are musts. Many thanks to LeMoyne-Owen College for the opportunity to talk business with the students and faculty. Making new connections and reconnecting with someone from years ago was definitely the icing on the cake.
