Bootstrappers Breakfast Theme for March: Grow Your Network Even If You Are an Introvert
In addition to our regular roundtable there will be a 15 minute exercise led by Theresa Shafer to help grow your network. For Theresa as well as other introverts networking is hard, yet networking is crucial for your business and career advancement.
