Successful people know that summer is a HOT time to grow their businesses. Use this summer's weddings, graduation parties and barbecues to reconnect with neighbors, old friends and former colleagues, and to make new connections. Make one connection every weekend this summer and you'll have two new opportunities by September.

Who did you see this weekend? Most importantly, have you called him to schedule a lunch to discuss new opportunities? While l focus my work on helping lawyers find clients, let's network together this summer.
