My first life-changing experience with networking

Through networking, I found my passion and purpose in life and since that day I am always happy no matter what problems come my way. When I was a teenager, I was always trying to find my passion and purpose by trying different things that interested me like boxing, basketball, soccer, cybersecurity, software development, and many other things. (How strange that I didn't want to be a firefighter too😂🤣) Anyway, none of that was something I really wanted to die doing, so I kept moving towards different professions. I am very introverted and I never liked talking to strangers, working as a team at school, nothing that involves the people around me. Until that day at school, there was a special activity with others from the school to network and share with other students, I was very angry. I did not want to participate but it was mandatory. I meet 3 strangers, I just sat looking at their faces talking to each other, and exactly 30 minutes later they start talking about entrepreneurship and that immediately caught my attention and I asked them several questions ... What's that? Where did you learn about it? How can I get more information about it? That day I found my true passion and purpose and since then I love meeting others, working with teammates because I realize that teamwork makes dreams work. I start after learning everything I could in those days about entrepreneurship to look for business connections. But I was wasting my time and energy, I couldn't find someone with the same interest and vision, they were all negative and professional people who were lying about themselves. I tried to find a solution, but none works for me. For those reasons, I am actually working on a networking platform to provide online networking opportunities to help entrepreneurs make connections and increase results without waste their time. Because I really believe that one or more connections can change someone's life as it happened with me a few years ago.
