Networking when you can’t “face to face”

March 1st, 2011

Business Networking I know you’ve been there, the next great networking conference is announcing all of their fantastic speakers, events and mixer opportunities in your niche market. You read the tweets, you see the blog posts, you can’t escape the Facebook Status updates from all the cool kids saying “I’m going!” and you literally wilt in your chair. You KNOW that if only you could attend it would catapult your business into stardom, you’d be rollin’ with the homies baby!

We’ve all been there when the reality sets in that this time (maybe every time) you have to pass on the chance to connect in a real live “face to face” situation with heavy hitters in your industry. It’s crushing, it’s depressing, you wonder if you can ever develop a connection and lasting business relationship using alternative means of networking. Can you get results, win friends and influence people without the actual face to face connect a conference setting provides?

This is the topic we’re tweeting about and discussing in the Boutique Cafe Facebook group this week. Have you had a similar experience please come share it. If you have found other means and methods of alternative networking it’s time to spill the beans and share your secret to networking success. That way the next conference that rolls around that we can’t attend won’t send us into a tailspin of chocolate eating and deep sobs. – Daria

Soleil Moon Frye Brings back Punky Brewster for Twitter Fans

September 4th, 2009

Ahhh the 80’s! I was totally obsessed with the show Punky Brewster, my sister and I never missed an episode. Well Soleil Moon Frye gifted her loyal fans with a true blast from the past this week. She promised her Twitter fans that once she reached 1 million followers she would dress as Punky Brewster. Out came the bandanas and mis-matched shoes! I can’t express how much joy this brings me Soleil – you ROCK! Punky Power forever! – Daria

Time.com: “How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live”

July 24th, 2009

The following is reposted from “freshly baked.” Daria and I thought our Boutique Cafe readers would be interested in this insightful article on Twitter, which I read in a recent Time magazine.

If it weren’t for gym magazines I may never know what’s going on in the world. From the latest detox diets to Fall’s must-have accessories, the gym is a plethora of useful information. But seriously, I do get the chance to read some really interesting articles when I’m lucky enough to grab a Time or Newsweek from the stand, and today is the perfect example.

Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter

In a recent issue of Time magazine I found an article all about Twitter titled “How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live.” Now, you don’t have to extol the virtues of the latest 140-character communication craze to me—I’m already a big fan. But this article pointed out a few things I didn’t know, a few things I hadn’t thought about, and a few possibilities for the future that make you stop and think.

New to Twitter? Seasoned pro? No matter where you stand when it comes to tweets, DMs, @ replies and followers, you’ll want to read “How Twitter Will Change the Way We Live” in its entirety. It may just change the way you think. And yes, it’s a wonderful, wonderful web.

P.S. If you want to follow me on twitter you can find me here: @emihill. Tweet on!—Emily
