A few weeks ago, I attended the LA FAD Show presented by Gwen, The LA Girl. It was a fun event that gave Summer and I the chance to take the Buddytruk gang downtown. We hung out in downtown Los Angeles at the Fashion Art District. Earlier that week, we were at an entrepreneur mixer for the filming of a pilot for a potential reality television series. It's always great to "network" and meet new people. Sometimes I hear "networking" and I roll my eyes. I'm bored with that phrase and it sounds disingenuous. Can we call it something else?
If you're a professional in any field you should try to attend as many events as you can EVEN if it's not in your "wheelhouse". Not only do you get a chance to meet brand new people but, you also get a spark of great ideas, and real feedback from complete strangers.
