Recently I was invited to my 2nd “Favorite Things Networking Event”. Talk about networking made FUN! The first one I attended earlier in the year and had so much fun, so I could not wait to do it all again!
Here is how it works!
Everyone brings 5 of their favorite things. It’s best if it is something you sell of course! However we had ladies that sold Insurance or other things like that, so they picked out something that was simply one of their favorite things. (i.e. a coffee cup with a cute saying like this one I received at the first event! You can see I obviously love it!)
Just $20 each!
The gifts need to be about $20 each, so I brought some of our Soakable items along with a bottle of our Soaks from my Pink Zebra line!
Tell about yourself!
Next, the party begins and each person gets to stand up and tell a bit about themselves, their company, and then their favorite things item! EZPZ right?
Draw 5 names!
Finally, as each person stands to present, they will draw 5 names from the jar. Keep in mind, each person there gets their name in the drawing 5 times, and each person there brought 5 gifts, so guess what? Everyone gets to take home 5 new items!! Doesn’t that sound fun?!
Simple but fun way to network!
You get to meet and mingle with new people, get to learn about new products, and get to take home 5 gifts! It is a simple way to network, but it is so much fun!
The really neat thing about this is if it is not an event you already have in your area, you can put one together yourself. Ask about small businesses and direct sellers in your area! Find a location! Invite them and explain the rules! Now HAVE FUN!
I hope you will give it a try! Networking made fun! Let me know if you have done this, or if you plan to!
