Well, I’m finally getting out and about these days, meeting more people and networking like a madwoman. I’ve become a big believer in networking these days. You just never know who knows who or how they might be able to help you, simply out of the kindness of their hearts.
Through my own networking, The Candyman’s firm got a nice, fat retainer for law services – simply because I happened to mentioned a specific kind of law to a colleague. I mean, how cool is that? What are the chances? You just never know.
I recently met a woman here, Susu Bear (yes, that is her name), a fellow blogger (WOO HOO! Love me some bloggers!) who runs a great website called Scoop Charlotte. I f you’re a local Charlottean, you simply must follow her to get all the steals and deals going on in the local boutiques. If you’re not local, you should still check her out for the occasional give-away or to hear about sales at places like Nordstrom's, Nordstrom’s Rack or for cool info like the fact that Diane von Furstenberg will be designing a line for GapKids and babyGap come March 2012.
Anyway, I met with Susu for a casual lunch that lasted three hours. Don’t you just love when that happens? She knows so much about Charlotte – all the ins and outs and all the fantastic places to shop. She definitely has the scoop – so an appropriately named website for sure!
She’s been so kind as to allow me a guest post on her blog today, so please show her some link love and check out my post here. You simply will never know what you’ll find on her site. For instance, another guest blogger wrote about the hot and crazy trend, Pajama Jeans. I laughed my ass off and immediately went to the author’s blog called Lola is 40. I think I might have found a blogger who swears more than I do. I know, hard to imagine, right? So check her out too, but NOT before you head on over to my guest post.
So see what networking can do? It can open up a whole new world of shopping, deals and steals and and a whole lotta funny!
