Networking should be a top priority for Entrepreneurs. We always hear successful entrepreneurs talk about ‘never getting too comfortable.’ Why is that? Well, the one consistent thing in life is that things constantly change. Think about it; the market fluctuates, technology advances, and consumer preferences evolve. Nothing stays the same; our world is constantly evolving. That is why even as an expert in your field, you should always find opportunities to network. According to a LinkedIn article, "85% of entrepreneurs build relationships through networking." So it is safe to say that networking should always be in your top five priorities as an entrepreneur.
Networking as a young entrepreneur is very different from networking as a seasoned entrepreneur. The most apparent change is your attire helps make networking a top priority. You are dressing for business meetings and networking events rather than casual hangouts. Our ‘Ask Me What I Do’ Polo represents your brand. The polo can go with jeans, khakis, or a skirt. As a successful entrepreneur, you know how your overall appearance can make or break your first impression. Our polo is neutral enough to where you can accessorize it or make it your own.
Even though networking tactics change as you progress in your entrepreneurial journey, the need to connect with others does not disappear. Your goals may not be to secure funding, but it could be to gain information or build more contacts for your business venture. In every industry, you want to stay on top of your game and understand the latest trends.
Networking as an entrepreneur is more about the opportunities to collaborate with others and build relationships. Those relationships come in handy when you face challenges or decide to pivot your business. The ‘Ask Me What I Do’ Polo can also help a new entrepreneur find a mentor in you—being a mentor and allowing someone else can provide great fulfillment. Although, networking isn’t always about what someone can do for you; we should always find time to give back to others on the path where we once were.
Our ‘Ask Me What I Do’ Polo is an essential part of any marketing technique for any entrepreneur. It’s lightweight, sleek, and can easily be worn to business meetings or networking events. In addition, the classic print networking slogan will capture someone’s eye and spark a conversation that can lead to your next big business opportunity.
