Great Networking Tips Shared at Good Morning Corona
Lena Thomas of Corona Hardwood shared some amazing networking tips at Good Morning Corona last Friday! Here are the top takeaways:

  • Smile - be open and welcoming.

  • Introduce yourself with an anecdote that resonates. One line or story about what you love about what you do.

  • Go in with the intention to make new friends, not sell your business.
