When we become business owners, we become marketers. We learn how to get our brand out there, tell the world about what our business does and what it has to offer.

When we talk about marketing, the first thing that comes to mind is advertising on various platforms, but what about networking?

Networking tends to be on the lower rung of priority when it comes to the myriad of things that we, business owners have to do as it’s often put in the ‘too hard’ basket.

But what if you learnt how to create a network, harness the power of that network, understand the important part that you play in it and more?

Pauline Fetaui, Director of ACS Innovation Labs shares how creating a network does not need to be hard if you start with an authentic place of connecting and helping.
