Turn Holiday Parties into Networking Opportunities!

As the Holidays approach, many of us will be attending parties, events and just being around more people.  Turn these events into ready-made networking opportunities!

Here are some simple questions to ask to be purposeful in your networking:

  • What are your family traditions during the holidays?
  • What do you do for a living?
  • Do you have any vacation plans for the holidays or 2018?
  • Are you currently living in your dream house?
  • What is your “Empty Nest” plan
  • Have you seen a lot of new construction in your area?
  • Who is your Realtor/CPA/Financial Adviser? (ask for an introduction)
  • What community holiday events do you attend each year? (more networking!)

Make it a goal to exchange three business cards at each event and follow up the next week with a personal note.  Be purposeful at the end of 2017 to make sure 2018 starts strong!
