Five ways to make connections by Amanda

Making connections can seem like a daunting task in the early stages of entrepreneurship, or even your first week in a coworking space. To help you get started, Amanda came up with five simple tips to help you start meaningful business relationships and network away:

1. Smile. A friendly face is more approachable.

2. Say hello first.

3. Tell a funny joke or a bad one. Either way, it’s memorable.

4. Follow up with your conversation.

5. Put yourself in new situations and around new people.
