Ok so who doesn't get a bit nervous walking into a room when you don't know very many people, or even worse, not a soul? I know I do! Networking events can get a bad wrap just thinking about them right? I love meeting new people, but do admit that I find it a lot easier (and less nerve wracking) at a dinner party when a seasoned host is a master at mixing and mingling the right guests. And of course, a cocktail usually helps loosen up the crowd! I like to think I am fairly practiced at walking up to strangers, and yes, I do sometimes practice in the mirror to polish a few new ice breakers of my own!
I find that the most boring approach is asking someone what they do……OY already right? Depending on the event and my purpose for being there, I try to come up with some questions that feel appropriate and will help me attain my goal. My goals vary from event to event and I might be looking for different outcomes like meeting new friends, scoping out potential JV partners, learning some new techy trick, just gathering business cards, and sometimes just meeting people who can refer a client down the line. I like to make friends and get to know people to see what happens down the line.
I reached out to my Entreprenette Experts for their tips on awesome Ice Breakers so read on……they have great tips!

It took me years to figure out how to set the right price for my product line when I first started out, so I can imagine you might be in the same situation. If you are not sure if you are making any money, then there is a good chance you’re not pricing your products correctly.
