It's incredibly difficult to get anybody to come out and network in the summer. Don't you agree?

For one thing, it's hot. And nobody wants to go hang out in center city in 90 degree heat if they're not used to it.

Bless those who live there. I don't know how they do it.

We had pretty good success getting people out to our 422 ARCH networking event on June 12th, but traffic was a mess and that was in the SUBURBS! I can tell you that's the only networking event I remember attending since June began. (and that was my own event, haha)

Not every group is taking a break like we are at 422 ARCH. The Who'ja networking group has like 3 events scheduled for each week. It's tempting, but at the end of the day I just do not feel like hauling my butt out there. Maybe I have senioritis.

So this summer, I don't know if things will pick up as far as attending more networking events next month. It's hard enough convincing my loving mother in law to come over on a Saturday afternoon for a small party.

Forget trying to gather a big crowd. Be happy with a small gathering until vacation season is over. That's just my two cents.
