Networking is an essential part to every woman’s life. Whether you are a student, mom, or career woman it’s important to start building a network. You network is the key to making your life less stressful and opening doors to opportunity. Yes, networking can create opportunities for financial gain but there are many other ways networking can be beneficial.
The “Other” Benefits to Networking:
1. You make new friends
2. You have a tribe of people that share the same interests
3. You have a resource of knowledge from people doing similar things
4. You can ask for advice on similar situations
5. You have your own cheerleaders that encourage you to keep climbing

This past weekend I spent some time networking with blogger babes at a pink themed Blogiversary Brunch. I wore a pink lace dress from the Eva Mendes collection at New York &Co. I paired it with my pearl tassel earrings (also seen here) and a Kate Spade book clutch. The look was finished off with a simple nude heel to elongate my legs. I had a great time taking so many photos and hearing stories on what everyone is working on.
I hope this post encourages you to network just a little more. It can do wonders for your life and create lasting friendships, opportunities, and tools for your success/sanity (that’s for the moms out there). I want to challenge you all to meet one new person this week and tell me how it goes. I would love to hear an inspiring networking story.
