Networking for Fun and Profit
Let's face it, giving speeches in public, writing articles, or doing
anything else out of one's comfort zone, including networking, is not
easy, comfortable and/or fun for many people. Just like anything else,
knowledge is power, and practice makes perfect. Once you learn, practice
and eventually master a few basic techniques, you will realize
networking can be fun and even very profitable!
There is a certain 'art and science' to networking.
If you are a business owner or a salesperson, it is imperative to learn
how to network effectively; your financial success may depend on it! You
don't have to be a natural-born extrovert or even an expert in your
field to be able to approach a stranger and make a connection!
We could learn much from children. Some children tend
to be fearless; they simply do not know any better. They usually do not
have any inhibitions or insecurities that prevent them from doing or
saying things. As we get older, experiences, assumptions, and fears
creep in and prevent us from accomplishing our goals.
Let's get back to the basics
(clean slate) for a moment, and simply forget all you have learned or
thought you knew about networking. Humans are social creatures by
nature. At our workshop, you will practice how to socialize and network not only
to grow our businesses, but to also become better people!
Consider the following quotes (Please share this and pay it forward!):
- Networking = Hospitality = Success
- Best business is personal business. Give and you shall receive.
- Perception is reality. You only have one chance to make a first impression.
- The key to success is not what you know, or who you know, it's who knows you!
- A little courtesy goes a long way. Golden Rule - Treat others like you would like to be treated.
- The main purpose of any business is to grow.
