If the glove doesn’t fit...

By Danielle Lum, Hawaii Bureau Chief Danielle's Bio Email article RSS feed

I recently took the big step of quitting my 9-5 job and becoming my boss. After having a guaranteed paycheck for two decades, I now would have to hustle, find clients, and fulfill contracts to get paid. It was spooky to say the least.

One thing I had on my side was a great network of people who knew what I could do and were willing to be my first clients. Whew. But I knew that I had to find more clients and the way to do it was by building and expanding my network.

I had always stayed away from networking events in the past. I’m shy and reserved by nature, so while I was okay in small group situations, large gatherings always left me tongue tied and standing in a corner. Seriously, a root canal was preferable to being in a large group of people. But now my very livelihood depended on me getting out, meeting people, and selling myself.
