When marketing yourself it's easy to get overwhelmed and not know where to start. It's easy to forget how many people you already know, and how many connections you've made in your lifetime.
Talk to your friends and family. Let them know what you're trying to accomplish. Ask them if they know anybody they can introduce you to. Be specific in explaining the type of people you want to meet because once that connection is established, once it's with the right person or not, you'll be obligated to meet with that connection. Explaining exactly who it is that you want to meet, will keep you from wasting time...yours and theirs.
Reach into your past. Whatever became of those friends from high school, summer camp, sports teams, college, summer jobs, military or from the old neighborhood? What are they up to these days. You never know just how many of these connections may lead to new business.
