Dark Joseph Ravine is the founder of the online business Kindness for Success, a social media influencer, an actor, and a Guinness World Record holder. Ravine enjoys meeting new people. He values networking and making connections with others. Ravine is genuinely interested in people and enjoys getting to know people better. One of the ways he meets new people and makes connections is by attending gatherings and events.
Events can be an exciting way to meet new people and to have pleasurable experiences. Ravine says, “It is always nice to go places, get to know people I haven’t met yet, and to learn about their backgrounds and customs. One important highlight about events is that they often attract people who want to learn new skills because these events usually offer an education to those who attend.” Gatherings are places where people can forget about their daily life stresses while helping them find new opportunities.
Of course, people should practice boundaries when it comes to attending events, according to Ravine. He says, “There can be such a thing as attending one too many gatherings. One should be selective about which gatherings are most important to attend. Crashing gatherings where one is not invited to is a no-no. If the gatherings are for the public, then no invitation is necessary, but showing up where one is not invited could result in problems during the event. Another mistake many new entrepreneurs make is treating every event as a business opportunity. People may oblige them at first but will soon grow tired if every gathering becomes a promotional campaign.” Although we want to attend every gathering or engage in self-promotion, Ravine believes placing limits on oneself is the answer.
Ravine notes that events should offer more than just an education. Although education is important, people should also be provided the opportunity to have a pleasurable experience. He says, “I have personally hosted giveaways for followers sometimes when I have had an in-person event. I have held contests to make people’s experience a lot more enjoyable and to give back.”
Ravine is a motivational speaker. His favorite motivational speaking topics are kindness, morals, life lessons, and self-improvement.

Events can be life-changing and help build connections between people, which is why Ravine enjoys them.
