Networking with dogs - continuation of the startup adventure.

November 13th, 2013, 8pm

It was 5°C with few clouds. The breeze was gentle.

It was one of those days that having a dog made some time scheduling complicated. After having a long day of good work done with my new intern (or well, this amazing girl that wants to help me with my business for free ;)) I raced back home, tired and hungry, to let Tjido out for a walk.

I was pretty much dragging my feet, when we met a neighbour and Tjido’s lady-friend the Jack Russel puppy. I see our neighbour pretty much every week, but for the first time we deviated from dog-talk to what’s-your-job talk. Turns out his company helps entrepreneurs and startups!!!

He liked my business idea and I gave him my website and info. He mailed me not much later with some great info and promised to keep an eye out for restaurants in need of advice!

So when I came home home with a grin plastered on my face, I had to take a picture (even if pretty dark) of my beloved dog and his social skills! What a great way to network!
