I was recently asked to become a member of a small community group. I instantly agreed and was invited soon after to attend a meeting with the group. That meeting was yesterday. I can’t say that I look forward to many things nearly as much as I do meeting new people. I get filled with the same kind of excitement as when I am en-route to connect with old friends.
I know that what I’m describing may not be considered normal, but I don’t think it’s all that uncommon either. Not today when so many of us in the business community appear to be drawn to attend the growing number of Indy networking events. We are justified by the semblance of building our professional network, but I think it’s more than that. It is for me.
I am blessed to have as many opportunities as I do to meet new people and make new friends. I will never take it for granted.
