TBS And Networking: Meh. (But Not This Time!)

Next Monday, I've been asked to sit on a panel for Crave Atlanta's monthly chat and I could not be more excited.  Though most will be surprised to find this out, I am actually painfully shy.  Not so much that it's awkward but I DO have hermit-like tendencies (I know...I must do better).  I'd much rather be home curled up on the sofa watching reality television than totally glammed out for a red-carpet event.

But occasionally, I look forward to getting out and networking. This Crave Atlanta chat is going to be the bees' knees.  Run by local connector and communicator, Laura "Don't Call Me A Publicist" Scholz, Crave is a consortium of women-run businesses and a think tank for the exceptional and brilliant. Trust me when I say that I have been afforded the opportunity to meet so many women through Crave that have literally changed my life!

I'm sitting on a panel that's been dubbed "Secrets of Social Media Superstars" (picture me looking around the room because the balance of them may be stars NOT me).  I'll be joining Katie Birmingham of Noon Midtown, Tucker Berta of Serenbe and Michael Erickson of Fifth Group Restaurants. I can not wait!

If you're in Atlanta, you should definitely join us! If there's a Crave consortium in your market, get involved. Seriously, it's the best.

Do you network? Like it? Hate it? Any tips coping mechanisms to share?


  1. Congratulations. This sounds like a fabulous event.

  2. This sounds so cool! I hadn't heard of this group before - but I am all about supporting women professionally. You'll do great!

  5. I'm really going to try to make it to this, the last event was so fun!

  6. Hello TBS, congratulations! I happened upon your blog and I think it is quite lovely. Love your what would you do posts-very informative! Lovely meeting you!

  7. What an honor! I am so excited for you.

  8. Crave is awesome. I was in their Bay Area shopping guide last year when I was part of Willa Home. We couldn't keep those books on the shelves. i hope to participate this year now that I am back in my own store. You would be awesome on that panel! I can't imagine you getting all shy....
