Most people know that networking, i.e. relationship building, is not so much about what you can get, but what you can give to someone else. What value can you add to their life, business, cause, goal, etc…? Every Dot Connects obviously knows networking, not only do they give various workshops in social media but they also share what they have learned in the process. Check out Sheila Scarborough‘s latest post here: Teaching the teachers: what we’ve learned from our social media workshops.
I attended the first Every Dot Connects workshop called, “Learn Five Web 2.0 Tools in One Day”, and had a great time. I had met Connie Reece before briefly, but it was the first time I had met Sheila Scarborough and Jennifer Navarrete. These ladies helped to catapult me into twitter that day. I had a few tweets under my belt, but needed an extra shove out of the nest to really get going.
And now, believe it or not, I have two twitter accounts! I recently changed my main account to @SueRostvold and started a separate one for my other business, @VerySuperCool. It’s a great networking tool, but very addicting if you’re not careful.
So I guess you could say that I got my twitter wings from Every Dot Connects. Thanks @conniereece, @SheilaS and @epodcaster for all your help. A new media enthusiast couldn’t ask for more awesome mentors!
