Networking is an essential aspect of almost all successful small businesses. But, what you shouldn’t do when networking can be just as important as what you should do. So that you can avoid these networking fails, we have asked the fantastic CarolRoth.com contributor network of business owners, experts, advisors and entrepreneurs to share the worst networking mistakes that they have ever seen (or done!). Their answers are presented below in no particular order.
You may notice some similar ideas listed, but I kept them separate, as something in the way one is framed may resonate differently with you.
