As entrepreneurs, we’re always so busy forging new relationships with partners and clients that we tend to forget one of the most priceless opportunities: peer-to-peer networking. There is a wealth of knowledge within the entrepreneurial community, and all it takes is a one-on-one meeting to realize that all of the business answers we seek could potentially come from our peers. I came to this realization some time ago, and have since made it a point to proactively involve myself in the lives of fellow entrepreneurs.
How do I do this? It’s simple: I invite them to lunch.
