Know how to talk to busy people. As you continue to network, you’ll discover some of the most important people are the busiest. When reaching out to them, have a specific purpose. Be sure to ask the right questions and accommodate their schedule.

Take your to-do list with you
Whether it’s a road trip, weekend at the beach, or boating on the lake thanks to technology there’s so much networking you can do from wherever you are. Whether it’s sending LinkedIn messages from your phone or emails from your tablet, summertime networking doesn’t have to stop just because you’re enjoying the sunshine. Don’t forget your sunscreen and a waterproof case though!

Don’t get drunk – Especially at the more informal meet-ups, there is the chance they will be serving alcohol. Even though a little Dutch courage can help the confidence, appearing intoxicated is the worst thing you could possibly do.

First impressions count
First impressions are important as they are long lasting, so make sure that your first impression is a good one, and do not forget to follow up after the event. Remember that networking with someone is the beginning of building a long-term relationship.

Decide on who you want to meet
Sometimes, networking events will list who is going to be in attendance. Look through the list and decide on who you want to meet and prepare a plan to engage them in meaningful conversation.
If the list of attendees is not provided, then you may have to do some moving around to find the right people. Once you find one person in your industry, ask them if they know anyone else in attendance that you can connect with.

Remember Key Details and Follow Up
My favorite first question to a stranger is, what is keeping you busy?” People respond with both professional and personal examples that give a window into what their interests are, and what they care about. By building upon that, you can identify shared interests and develop a familiarity and comfort level with the person. Always remember to capture important info (kids names, hobbies, etc.) to add to a followup email so they know you were listening! –

How did the Fourth of July become a national holiday?
For the first 15 or 20 years after the Declaration was written, people didn’t celebrate it much on any date. It was too new and too much else was happening in the young nation. By the 1790s, a time of bitter partisan conflicts, the Declaration had become controversial. One party, the Democratic-Republicans, admired Jefferson and the Declaration. But the other party, the Federalists, thought the Declaration was too French and too anti-British, which went against their current policies.
By 1817, John Adams complained in a letter that America seemed uninterested in its past. But that would soon change.
After the War of 1812, the Federalist party began to come apart and the new parties of the 1820s and 1830s all considered themselves inheritors of Jefferson and the Democratic-Republicans. Printed copies of the Declaration began to circulate again, all with the date July 4, 1776, listed at the top. The deaths of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams on July 4, 1826, may even have helped to promote the idea of July 4 as an important date to be celebrated.
Celebrations of the Fourth of July became more common as the years went on and in 1870, almost a hundred years after the Declaration was written, Congress first declared July 4 to be a national holiday as part of a bill to officially recognize several holidays, including Christmas. Further legislation about national holidays, including July 4, was passed in 1939 and 1941.
