DeHarrisOnline.com - De Harris, AllBiz Pro - Making an impact on 2012 this holiday season through networking  | socialaction2014 | Scoop.it

Ready or not. It’s official. The holiday season has begun. Whether you meet it with open arms or have your own reservations it is here and with all the parties and events this is the perfect time to network. Everyone will be dressed up, looking great and ready to have some fun. Networking during the holiday season allows you a built in excuse to connect with others and also forces your hand since you are somewhat under obligation to get out there and mingle due to all of the festivities. So no excuses. Use the time to rekindle relationships and reach out to those you’ve been ‘meaning’ to connect with over this past year. It will prove to be the best thing for you to do for your business as we closer to 2012.
