If you are like me you have a calendar that fills up pretty fast this time of year. Besides MABA I coach youth baseball, serve at my church, spend time in my car (trying to avoid construction), cut my grass, play golf and basketball, spend time with my wife and kids, attend meetings, and of course meet with people to help them with their personal insurance. Some days I go from one activity or meeting to another. In fact, both personal and business activities tend to go one right after another and can often intermingle.
That word mingle in Webster’s dictionary means, “To move freely around a place or at a social function, associating with others.” Also, “to mix or combine, or be mixed or combined.”
I’ve heard people say, “I’ve made some great friendships because of the relationships I’ve built over the years through MABA.” One of the big values of MABA is just that, providing opportunities, events, and committees you can participate in and be involved in to get to know people. Our meetings, socials, ribbon cuttings and partnership marketing activities are ways for you to mingle and see what happens, whether it be for personal or business reasons or sometimes…both! An avenue for you to get out of your comfort zone of your office or home and shake a hand and introduce yourself. You never know what can happen. That’s the really fun part of MABA, you never know what you will learn, hear about or be introduced to that can have a lifetime impact to your personal or business life or both!
Combine Fun and Business, mix excited people with great events. Get plugged in! There is so much going on, go to the website and learn about how you can get out and mingle and learn about the great people and great members of MABA. We are excited for the new folks who have joined us and have jumped right in. I look forward to shaking your hand at a mingle and finding ways we can help each other or help make an introduction for another member.
Always keep this at top of mind, mingling helps you…DO BUSINESS WITH A MEMBER!
