How To Make And Keep Friends Within Your Industry

Making Connections Online Versus Face to Face

“I find that it’s much easier to find friends, especially in my industry, online. I run a writing business at where I help women-owned businesses with their brand stories through intentional content creation and copy writing. Because my job is mainly online, and people who are in my industry are online, it makes more sense to connect there. It’s not uncommon for me to connect with someone online, and go grab coffee with them after talking with them online. For instance, when I moved to Atlanta about four years ago, I connected with a girl via a mutual friend. We ended up meeting for coffee and the rest became history. We show up for each other. We encourage one another. We don’t compete. I learned that it’s not necessarily about finding friends in the same profession or who have the same passions or who even look like you. Be open to what and who may come along and you’ll attract the community you need.”
