Network From Your Desk.
Network. Walk into an event or a lunch ready to rub elbows, shake hands, introduce yourself, exchange information. Opportunities are everywhere. Be ready to recognize and seize them. It means putting yourself out there to fail – or, more likely, succeed.
These days, networking can happen from your desk using services like ReadyTalk. Yes, face-to-face is better, but that’s not always possible with kids, work and, that horrible recession we keep hearing about. Teleconferencing, as it’s called, gets more sophisticated by the day. Do have your own blog, run an online store, or are you interested starting a new company?
Check out the Women Who Tech Teleconference on May 12th (http://www.womenwhotech.com). Speakers include Charlene Li, co-author of the business bestseller, «Groundswell: Winning In A World Transformed By Social Technologies,» Rashmi Sinha of SlideShare, and Lisa Stone of BlogHer.
(Note: DailyWorth founder Amanda Steinberg, CEO of Soapbxx, is moderating the 11:00 am panel called «Women and Open Source.»)
