I've said it more than once and I'll keep saying it until the economy turns around: face-to-face, in person, real time, networking is your number one marketing tool. Why?
The impact you make online doesn't hold a candle to the impact you make in person.
And as soon as the holidays hit, the networking turns to partying, which in my opinion, isn't nearly as productive.
So here are a few events coming up that we highly recommend you attend:
