Conference Prep–Neworking on the Fly
Almost everyone I know groans and rolls their eyes whenever I bring up the topic of networking. But it’s one of the best skills I’ve ever learned, and the primary reason I’m now a published author. I’ve mentioned many, many times before about how I knew both my agent and my editor for years and years before submitting to either of them—just through networking with them at conferences and through my position as an officer with ACFW.
This week, two of our guest bloggers will be discussing on-the-fly networking—from impromptu pitching to recognizing and taking care of “God appointments.” Then on Thursday, we’ll start looking at getting spiritually prepared for conference.
And to refresh you on networking, here are the posts from the two series I’ve done already on the blog:
