That time we went to our first Business Expo.
Last November we had the opportunity to participate in the Palatine Business Expo held by the Palatine Chamber of Commerce. We’re new members of the Chamber, and we knew we needed to outreach to our community to find out more about what our local businesses are about, and what potential problems we could provide solutions to.
What we took away from the Expo was the diversity of businesses, and how no two were alike. Some were seasoned pros at networking and others (like Carolyn Packard Design) were just getting their feet wet. In the end, our takeaway from the experience was to be willing to embrace that feeling of uncertainty, that moment of uncomfortableness. We gained two new clients whom we’re currently collaborating with, and we may not have met them had it not been for the Business Expo!
