After ONE networking event, I booked three new clients and have continued to book new clients at each subsequent event! Because District Bliss makes the events so warm, engaging and welcoming, that awkward networking ice is broken right away and business owners can immediately connect with perfect-match, top paying, high integrity, fun customers. You won't find this at other events. With the top-tier sponsoring opportunity, we are truly thrilled and have found a comfortable, monetizing networking hub — couldn't be happier!

It's important to know when you have too much on your plate. That's when you need to start delegating within your business.⁠

As entrepreneurs, we're dreamers, we're "yes" people, we take on more than we can handle, we throw ourselves into tasks with 10,000%.⁠

And, then, we hit a wall.⁠

Don't forget that you're human. Ask for help. Hire the right people who will help you grow a strong, successful business.⁠

And, don't forget to surround yourself with a supportive community!⁠

“I attended one online event and I could immediately tell that there was such a great energy. As soon as I arrived, I felt welcomed. It was like an in-person feeling in an online world! Sara popped us into little breakout rooms for a few minutes before we got started, which really encouraged connection. We followed each other on Instagram and have stayed in touch. I felt like I could meet my business bestie from just attending one workshop — who knew?!” — ⁠

As a photographer, I used to go to tons of networking events in hopes of meeting other business owners in the industry, entrepreneurs who might become friends, and, yes, photographers, too.⁠

But a lot of photographers weren't really interested in meeting me. They saw me as competition.⁠

We've all been there, right? We're trying to grow our networks, but we're not always sure the best way to do it.⁠

So, I decided to break the system and District Bliss starting hosting welcoming, collaborative networking socials. ⁠

They were immediately popular. Clearly, I wasn't the only person craving this type of environment where everyone can feel welcome, safe, and really enjoy meeting new people!⁠

Today, I thought I'd share a few of my tips for networking that I've seen work time and time again:⁠
- Go into the event with an open mind. You never know who might be your next referral partner, affiliate, client, or friend.⁠
- Don't forget that even people who you consider to be your competition may need to refer to — or hire — you at some point.⁠
- Don't avoid networking. There's nothing else like it! You really do have to get out there and meet people, even if you hate the traditional networking events; just find the right events for you!⁠
- Ask questions, engage, and really listen to the people you meet. One of the reasons that I've been so successful with building this community is that I care about each and every person I meet. I want to know about the you and your business; I want to know what you're up to personally as much as professionally. You matter to me and I want to see you be happy and succeed!⁠

Tag someone who needs to see this — and thank the people who have welcomed you into their networks 👇⁠

I hope to see you all tonight at our networking social! ❤️
