Finding the perfect item to put into an event goody bag still baffles m. Last night I attended the Boston North Shore networking event, hosted by Laura Rocha. Laura took over as managing director earlier this year and she’s putting a lot of creative energy into these events. I was amazed atboth the quantity, and [...]
Active Rain (email me, firstname.lastname@example.org for an invitation) is a wonderful community of 140,000+ people involved in all aspects of real estate, mostly realtors sharing ideas, success and helping each other grow their businesses. Today I read a funny article, all about a reporter interviewing realtors. His agenda was set (he did all the talking [...]
There is a lot of good discussion about the role of social media in our lives. In fact, it’s not the only significant change in our lives but seems to overshadow the other significant change which is global, that Americans can no longer ignore what’s happening around the world.

I attended the Massachusetts Conference on Women a few weeks back and met an amazing number of successful women. Women who have started their own businesses, have written books and/or been published in national publications. They’re also interested in giving back to women as they did on some incredibly powerful panel sessions, i.e. the last [...]
For all of you committed to networking, you already know that in addition to group meetings … the most effective relationships include 1-1 meetings to really get to know people. These meetings tend to be held in public places like restaurants. Today I had a great meeting! Deb Sarhanis, someone I first met at one [...]
Your local “Chamber” offers great networking opportunities. I like Portsmouth’s monthly “Mid Day Meet” as they’re more relaxed than the traditional Business After Hours. Another local chamber offers events for the community like the Festival of Trees, with local businesses raising money for local non-profits. Soon after you start your business, you’ll get invited to [...]
