While â€œsocial mediaâ€ is every today, itâ€™s as important as ever to get face 2 face with folks you know online. The adage â€œitâ€™s not what you know, but who you knowâ€ is as true today as it was to previous generations. While technology is tearing down the barriers of time & distance, as humans, we crave real-time interaction.
Being an organizer of events in your town or city has some advantages â€“ you get to pick topics that are interesting to you, you get to help get people involved, but mostly you get to meet lots of people. Thatâ€™s probably the biggest reward of all the work that goes into these things.
The other thing is simply getting things started. Why wait for someone to get things started â€“ you could be that person. Itâ€™s not hard, and I know that most everyone thatâ€™s worked on getting organizing and hosting events would be happy to share some tips to making it all happen.
Are you ready to start something?
