Has anyone ever heard these quotes:
“Your network is your net worth” – Porter Gale
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen” – Brene Brown
There are so many great quotes and phrases about networking. Whether you are working for yourself as a small business owner, or an employee for a Fortune 500 company you must network to advance. Think about that job opportunity you saw online. Wouldn’t it be nice to know someone who can give you a leg up on landing that job? Think about the internal job posting you saw for your employer. Wouldn’t it be nice to already have some type of connection with the hiring manager?
Let there be no misunderstandings…this is still a mans world. Yes, women have come far and are continuing to strive into bigger and better roles of leadership. With this being said, we still need to continue to push forward and put ourselves out there. Do not be afraid to show up, ask questions, and promote your business.
CWOC is a safe place for all women to come together and show up. We want to provide encouragement, inspiration, unity, and emotional support to give us all the strength to keep doing what we love. Networking is about strengthening business connections, getting new ideas, increasing social presence, advancing careers, etc. I could go on and on about the advantages of networking.
