    What is your take on 'Business Networks"

    I have been invited to join a women's business network breakfast in a few weeks, not having any experience with this kind of thing I am not quite sure what to expect.

    You pay a monthly fee to belong to this network and they have monthly breakfasts with guest speakers, have any of you have any experience with this and what are your thoughts?

    I think joining a network is super, especially in your line of work. A lot (if not most) of a business's big forward leaps come from who you know, not what you know. Besides, what have you got to lose? If you see it's a more of a knitting club, and you don't particularly like knitting, then walk away.

    I take it you're not into knitting?

    Sounds like good stuff to me. Making monthly meetings is reasonable (I think weekly is overkill for these network deals and has been a deal-breaker to me on the ones I've been invited to of late) and being a network for women I'm sure there will be far more than token support for each other.

    Certainly worth a whirl, I reckon.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Its seems that her invitation for business network is good and nice way to earn money online but before this you should check and determine all the things about her business network like business policies, income, etc. It can be fake or it can be beneficial, when you will get satisfy then without any doubt join her network.
