Prior to founding Melissa Forziat Events, an event and marketing consulting firm based in Seattle, Washington, Forziat was an athlete with her eyes on a professional sports career. When that couldn’t happen, Forziat turned her passion for sport into a career planning events for the Olympic Winter Games, Rugby World Cup, and US Olympic Committee. This same passion eventually led her into corporate event planning and marketing.

“Building credibility is critical all along the way, and on two sides: if we don’t believe we’re credible, nobody else will,” said Forziat. “It’s something that’s been part of my story the entire way.”

Brown and Forziat discuss networking strategies that shaped their careers, including how every small business owner can leverage their own ingenuity to grow their enterprises without spending a fortune. Other tips include:

· Figure out pain points and tell prospect how you can solve them
· Identify ways you can insert yourself into a situation before there is a need
· Be prepared to take advantage of creative opportunities

“People are always looking for a magic bullet, and really it comes from within and from being savvy,” said Brown. “It comes from having the research and information to move your business forward in such a way that people will be compelled to do business with you.”

Forziat is also the author of the eBook, Small Business Marketing on a Budget, which is available on her website (melissaforziatevents.com).
