with Donna Gray
This past week I was in networking mode, with something on the calendar almost every day for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Even with today’s emphasis on social media marketing, many of my business friends feel that in-person networking events still help pave the way to business deals.
A business friend of mine recently returned from a “mini retreat” where all electronic devices were completely turned off or put away. The goal was to have three days away from the “overload” that seems to follow this person all day long, both at work and at home.
