GKN Weekly Update 11.1.10
Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday. I went to my friend Jim’s Toga Party. I was Gluteus Maximus!
Last week was really , really good. Among other festive activities, I had VO gigs for Oxford US, ETS, and Punto Mio.
I also went to a Meetup event in Morristown. It was a networking group and I’ve been to a number of different ones in the past. Unfortunately, I have found all of them to be a bit disappointing. The turnout is never as large as the Guest List says it will be, I find virtually no leads, and I almost never learn anything. But I keep going to them. Why? Find out in the GKN Tip of the Week!
TIP OF THE WEEK: I’m sure all of you were just wondering, “Why does Tom keep going to those networking events when he doesn’t get anything out of them? Silly boy!” Well I do get something out of them: renewal of purpose and focus. Just showing up reminds me to make a better effort. I’m also reminded of the things I’ve tried in the past and how I should seek new ways of getting my name out there. Also, when I interact with people at these events, I’m often reminded of how little I knew about networking back when I started and how much I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned along the way.
