We meet every Thursday morning at the Pottstown Friendlies. The cost of breakfast is $10 and every person attending has the opportunity to pass their business cards and give a 30-second elevator speech.
If you're not familiar with giving an elevator speech, fear not! A basic one is:
1. Your name and your business
2. Who you would like to connect with (A good connection for me is a...)
3. How you would like to have them connect with you (give them my card, give me their card, go to my website... etc.)
4. "Thank you" and your name.
A good elevator speech doesn't have to be complicated to be effective! But networking doesn't stop there. Come often and build relationships... in time, you find the business you are looking for and some resources you didn't know that you needed!
