How to find friendly people

I’ve been blogging for about a month, emailing people in the craft beer industry, having twitter conversations with other bloggers, etc. and I’ve come to a realization…people in this industry are friendlier.

Why is that? Well first, they’re all probably three or more beers in when I start talking to them. That helps a lot. But second, and more important, I think they’ve figured it out. They’re doing something they enjoy whether it’s for money or fun. That sense of fulfillment they receive from this is something I’ve been missing before starting my journey. Since starting though and changing a couple other lifestyle habits, I’ve felt much more satisfied at the end of the day. This is something I plan on growing on.

What’s next for me? This month I’m planning on continuing my reading and getting educated and start homebrewing. I hope to meet face-to-face with a few folks in the industry and pick their brains. And I’m getting my first opportunity to showcase my knowledge at a craft beer dinner/tasting I’m hosting at a local restaurant.

I don’t think I would have these opportunities or the drive to still be writing this blog if it wasn’t for the helpful people I’ve gotten the chance to interact with. Here’s to y’all. Cheers!
