Attending networking events in Houston is the best way to position yourself for success. When you participate in business networking remember to focus your efforts on giving first. You can increase your effectiveness if you tweak your elevator pitch to express how your business can help people solve issues related to their business, and try to develop new and sustaining relationships with other networkers.
If you're new to professional networking or to a networking group it's natural to feel a little uncomfortable at first, try asking someone from another company to attend the event with you. It'll give you an ally to talk to, but make it a point to not stay together the whole time.
