3. The Importance of Local Networking with Christen Burden

Episode Summary

In this episode we have a chat with my very own sister, Christen Burden, on the importance of in-person business networking opportunities and the best way to find the right groups for you and your business..

Networking can not only be intimidating or difficult, but finding like minded people in the entrepreneurial world can be tough, especially when you find yourself more introverted. 

Meet Christen:

Christen began her entrepreneurial career in 2021 as a mortgage loan originator. She has been a part of the business community for much longer, as president of Friends of U.S. Military Families, a non-profit organization, and as the branch manager for Tampa Bay Credit Union.  Overall she has spent about 10 years networking in both a corporate environment and for herself as an entrepreneur.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The difference between networking while in the corporate space vs as an entrepreneur  
  • How to meet new people when pivoting businesses
  • The value of joining a local networking community
  • The importance of following up with connections
