Halloween is my favorite holiday; I’m not going to lie. I have fond memories of dressing up in fabulous homemade costumes and going door-to-door trick or treating, the goal to get as many goodies as possible. Every kid had a mission, and together we strategized to hit up as many houses for the best candy before it was time to go home. I’m beyond my trick or treating years but I have realized that nothing much has changed.
For example, many of us have traded in our fairy princess and cowboy costumes for “business professional”. Instead of going door-to-door asking for candy, we go to networking events and gather business cards, but the concept is still the same: we go in with a goal, strategize and gather as many “goodies” as we can before the event/night is over.
