5 Ways To Meet New People
Connecting with people outside of your circle can be daunting, even many times intimidating. Finding new friends isn't always easy and comfortable. Sometimes, as much as you want to have friendships or connect with power connects, you'd just rather curl up with a book than attend some social gathering or meet-up with a group of strangers. It can take a lot of emotional energy to put yourself out there if you’re an introvert. But you can't remain a hermit forever.
Here are 5 great ways to meet new people:
Get Involved In Sports or Outdoor Activities
Find a group who shares a physical activity you enjoy and become a regular. Strike up conversations with other members and suggest meeting for coffee, wine, or beer after a game.
Join A Book Club
If you love books, a book club is a wonderful way to meet new people with a similar interest. It may take a few tries before you find the right fit. However, you can also attend book fairs like PublisHER where you can meet self published authors and learn from them + connect with other writers and book lovers.
Utilize Social Media Effectively
Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, & IG can all be used to connect w/ people nearby and network. Find a community that resonates with you, plan a meet up at a local café, great friendships start with a simple conversation.
There are so many fun opportunities for volunteering with large groups of people where you might find your tribe. Volunteer in areas that are meaningful and interesting to you. You can volunteer for a workshop, cultural event, or for a local art show.
Look in your local community to see what happenings and events are coming up in your area. Or if you like to travel look for events in other cities that you will benefit from! Attend some of these events and try to sit next to someone who might be looking for a new friend too. For example, at FMC we make the environment very casual & fun! Our conference is ideal for anyone trying to find a supportive friend, business bestie, or learn more about branding, funding, & simply succeeding in the entrepreneurial life.
The more you put yourself in social settings, the better the odds are that you'll meet interesting, fun new people who will improve your life, professionally or personally. So what are you waiting for? Snag your ticket and come find your #girltribe at Flourish Media Conference!
