Events Teaser

Before going to an event, reach out in advance. There is no rule that says you can't reach out to people you look forward to meeting at an event. You can consider posting on your social accounts using the event hashtag that you'll be attending the event and you're interested in meeting like-minded folks. Try it, it works.
