Face-to-face business networking with other local entrepreneurs is an important part of being a successful small business owner. Not only can business networking help you grow your customer base and generate referrals, but it can also provide numerous opportunities for learning, development, and growth. If you’re working for yourself, it can sometimes be isolating and lonely. Networking also helps you to develop within a supportive community.
