Pick one (or more!) conferences from this list and make it a goal to attend. Do your homework, connect with other attendees before the actual event, and have an open mind.

You can only achieve so much by sitting behind a computer screen. Make the effort to travel to an in-person event and bravely approach strangers. It may feel awkward at first, but everyone is in the same boat.

After all, we’re all looking to make connections.
