A networking success story! Leigh Stoecker and I have know each other since 2005. We met at a networking meeting, shared office space, and have worked on SEO clients together.
Coming out of a corporate environment, I was unsure as to how well local networking worked. The concept of meeting people at networking meetings was so foreign to me. Although I was warned that it takes times, I was hoping to be able to quickly meet people. When Leigh and I first met we connected, but it is as I look back over time that I appreciate how we networked, shared, and became friends!
In addition to working together, Leigh introduced me to the Woman’s Club of Red Bank, a non-profit organization that I’ve been actively involved with since 2006. I have also collaborated and worked with other professionals thanks to my business and now personal friendship with Leigh. My next door neighbor, Vivian, became a neighbor shortly after our meeting. And Leigh’s business partner Carol Ingaro is another personal and professional friendship that evolved.
