The second time I did the same… I “tried,” then went home.
I was embarrassed and nervous, and I really didn’t think I’d get any value out of going to that meeting.
The third time, fortunately, was a charm. I got there, went inside, introduced myself, and the rest was history.
I needed to be there. I really, really needed to be there. Why?

I learned at least three major things, which I put on the post. I also linked to Job Hunt’s that helps you find your own local network meetings.
Read the entire post here. And for Pete’s sake, stop “trying” to go! Just go, and immerse yourself!!
