Tornado warning & Networking...

Ok, they have nothing to do with each other, but someone requested I share the story referred to in yesterdays blog post. We went to an Orem Owlz game in the 2007 season. As we arrived, there were some dark clouds coming over the west mountains. Steve kept talking about how he didn't like the looks of those clouds. I kept telling him to 'shut up' and that we would be fine! Before long, they started an evacuation to the McKay events center due to a tornado warning headed right for us. We had a few other family members with us, it was kinda funny to see the different reactions, from nervousness to thinking it was all for nothing. It turned out that it was all for nothing, there ended up being no tornado...but from then on when my dear man starts being negative and then it happens, I tell him it is all his fault, just like the tornado warning! LOL!

Networking - at one time, I was sort of unofficially known as the networking queen. I had tons and tons of business cards from the people I met in my networking circle. I have seen great benefits from the power of networking. If someone needed something, I almost always knew someone that could help them! Having moved from the state for 2 years, people move on and my network is nowhere near as large as it once was, but I am working on it.

This leads me to the changes I made to my blog today...you will notice that I now have a long list of links to the right here. I have added all my friends blogs and business websites that I know about. If you are listed to the right and don't want to be on the list, let me know. If you are not listed to the right and want to be, let me know.

For the month of May, I made a goal to post to my blog every day. This has been a great experience for me. I have researched more topics online and learned a few new tricks in the process. I have come across some websites and information that have taught me much. I hope that we all can continue to help each other build traffic to each other's blogs and business websites and businesses in general. It is by networking and helping each other that will help us all become bigger and better as time goes on....

In the meantime, I am still doing PartyLite. I am also available to do data entry, organizing, family history research, babysitting and a few other things. Let me know what you need and I will see what I can do to help fulfill that need!
