What are your top 3 networking tips?

1. Love what you do, and show it! A genuine passion for what you do is vital in networking as it is what separates you from the pack.
2. Believe in yourself! Before you can convince others that you are the person they should be working with, you need to convince yourself!
3. Do it often! Regular networking is the best way to build strong referral relationships over time. Referrers need to trust you before they trust you with their clients.
