The year of getting off the couch

One of the goals I've set for myself this year (minus the time that I will be taking off for maternity leave) is to get off the couch and interact with creatives IRL. As an introvert who thrives off of being alone, it can be hard for me to put myself in places that require me to be chatty.

But with my word for the year being BOLD, I'm pushing myself out of my comfort zone to cultivate relationships out in the wild. So this weeks three is dedicated to helping you to get out and start meeting new people (both on & offline).

Networking as an introvert? Try bringing a wingman! Bringing someone along not only will help calm your nerves by knowing a familiar face but they will also give you someone to talk to in the event that things become too overwhelming. Just don't use them as a crutch! Remember you're not there to spend the whole night talking to people who you already know!
