Out and About with Stephanie
November is one of my favorite months. One of the reasons is that it is my birthday and my son’s birthday. Also it’s a month that is about showing gratitude with the Thanksgiving holiday as the cornerstone to the month. I love showing an “attitude of gratitude" when networking this month.
One of my favorite groups to network that I find always to be engaging and interesting is the Lake Oswego Ladies Who Lunch group. This group is an offshoot of the Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce and is a very dynamic group of ladies. It’s led by Ticia Symonds with help from GaSandra Carlson and Laurel Buncak. I love the fact that I always meet someone new and they really encourage focused networking so that you get a chance to share something about yourself/your business as well as learn about others.
Ladies Who Lunch usually meets at noon on the 4th Wednesday of the month at Deno’s Pizzeria however in December they will be meeting one week earlier on the 18th.
As people start to attend more family gatherings and holiday parties, think outside the box when talking to others. Come up with more unique questions than just “how are you?” Ask about 2020 goals or favorite family traditions around the holidays. Think creatively and have some fun with this. Others will appreciate your interest and it helps keep things more enjoyable.
