Mother Nature Loves Marketers

The giant tree outside my office window is beginning to bud. Alas, spring has come. Yes, spring, and tax time.

It's during this time that we start to think about all the things we could do in the summer to gain business and network. And of course how much it would cost.

Last week, I had the pleasure of going to a Chamber of Commerce Breakfast in the community. I met tons of business professionals, exchanged a slew of ideas, and even made a few LinkedIn connections and Facebook friends.

Just months ago, in the dead of January, I couldn't imagine hauling myself out of bed and into the dark. But the early April sun made getting up at 5 in the morning a refreshing change of pace.

Being at random places at random times helps business. You don't need to spend your entire budget on a fancy black-tie conference, or cocktail event. Go outside. Walk around the market. Donate a book. Talk to your new friends.
