Networking. It still surprises me that some people are confused by this word.
What does it actually mean?
We live in the age of the Internet, where the answer to anything is at the end of a computer, so what does it mean? – Just Google it!
With a quick search this is the best explanation I could find, when I typed in “What is the meaning of the word networking?”
“Networking is the practice of making contact and exchanging information with other people, groups or institutions”
Well I guess if you break it down that’s what it is – but its sounds so boring! To me it’s never been just that. I went out the other day, and I had a fantastic day out!
I went to the VegFest in Brighton and met some wonderful people, tasted some wonderful food, and listened to views that quite frankly I had not even thought about before.
So was I Networking, I guess I was, but Networking to me can only mean one thing – your eyes are opened to new ventures, new ways of living, meeting new people and having fun. From this will spring new friendships and business acquaintances, new opportunities for me and that warmth that I can also help other people with sorting out things in their life.
Networking = A good day out.
