  1. Hi Jodi, I am guessing you wanted to keep it at 10, but don’t forget about twitter.

    Also, a free way (and you can get a free lunch) is to give speeches at your local chamber of commerce and other offline networking forums.

  2. Greg, good tip about making speeches. I did think of Twitter, but I wanted to keep it at 10. I guess I’ll have to write another post!
