Networking is more than just meeting people so you can sell them something. Networking is a process of getting to know people, getting to know what they do, and learning about different aspects of various businesses.
Learning is one motivational aspect of networking that you can focus on. Especially if you’ve become burned out on these types of events. Ask your self how meeting new people is going to help you boost the knowledge and skills that are needed in your own job or business field.
Change your mindset to “what can I learn?” and re-energize your entire experience.
