What if we all tried to meet one new person a week? Think of the connections we’d make and the relationships we’d build.
In a TEDx Talk called “The 50 Cups of Coffee Challenge,” the speaker encourages audience members to meet up with one person a week for 50 weeks of the year. Through these “connections through conversation,” your network can expand and your life can be greatly impacted.
At the Venango Chamber and with the Be Here initiative, we’re all about connections. Connecting new residents to like-minded community members, job seekers with businesses hiring, visitors with information about our region, and so much more.
It’s essential, especially in a small town, to get to know people throughout the community, whether it’s your neighbor, a business owner, or just another community member you see out and about. Connections can not only help you feel welcomed and at home here, but can also lead you to accomplishing great things.
These can be personal and involve meeting new friends, or more professional, leading to success within your career. They say “it helps to know people” and it’s 100% true. If you need a business referral, new customers, or just helpful advice, the more people you know, the better chance you can make that happen.
