Most people in business stress the importance of Networking. For someone like me, riddled with anxiety and kind of introverted, I'm fairly comfortable around large groups - it's when I have to talk about myself that I panic and want to bail. The amount of networking events on Facebook I've RSVP'd to and bailed on is not a small amount.
Back in the summer, I applied for a business & grant program through the City. I went through and did the whole program and made some contacts in the process. Kinga, owner of Ela's Fleur (https://www.facebook.com/elzbietafleur/ - go give her a like!) was one of them! We spent an afternoon creating content for her ads and her business.
