What a strange feeling! I'm not an overtly social person, so I'm trying to work on how to deal well, with people!
I was at an event and was schmoozed by the editor of a local magazine that I did some random contract events for a few years ago. Things got too crazy for me last year to work for them, but I think I'm ready now to get back in the saddle!
I also was contacted out of the blue by one of our fancy new restaurants. The catering manager wanted me to give her info about event photography so she had someone to refer her clients too. I went to drop it off today, and she made me feel like a really important person.
Really flattering, I've been blushing since I left! I think I need to join toastmasters so I can learn to be outgoing like that!
