TAKE IT OFFLINE!
So, there is this new thing called “networking face-to-face.” I know it seems like a super foreign thing, but in this day and age things are progressing quickly! (cue sarcasm.)
But seriously. There is this event called Take It Offline on Thursday night, and the coordinator has given me 2 tickets to give away!
It’s pretty self explanatory, but for those of you who are terrified at the thought of being disconnected from your phone for more than 30 seconds, GET BACK TO THE REAL WORLD. You come without your cell (or check it at the door) and ACTUALLY NETWORK. Play games, talk to each other, hold hands if you like.
For those of you who have forgotten what it’s like to actually communicate in person, I’ve come up with a few “break the ice” questions/comments to get things rolling:
- Wow! I really love your (insert a piece of clothing you like here)! Where did you get it?
- Hi! My name is (Insert name here). What’s yours?
- Wow. Your butt looks great in those jeans! Do you squat? (this one gets mixed reactions. Use at own risk)
- Did you see that ending of the (insert TV show you like here…. but I’d personally use “bachelor in paradise”)? WASN’T IT THE MOST DRAMATIC YET?!
Really anything you would tweet as a question, only ASK IT IN PERSON and for the love of God don’t real life hashtag.
HOW TO WIN:
Ironically, I am giving away 2 tickets via a twitter contest! All you have to do is tweet any article from smartsnobs with the hashtag #takeitofflinesmartsnobs and connect to @alixemthorne. That simple!
Winner will be announced Thursday at noon! Randomly selected with http://competitionagency.com/tweetdraw/
