“A Successful Job Search: It's All About Networking” That was the headline in a story by NPR. Entrepreneur Magazine’s headline reads, “How Networking Can Increase Your Business' Net Worth”. The bottom line: learn how to build an effective network. This is a tool, a business skill you must master.
In today’s world, it’s not about who you know, it’s about who knows you. Your professional network should be the first place to go if you are looking to grow your business or develop your career. We often hear “you have to network”, but what do you actually DO when you arrive at the event. (And events cost a lot! Money, travel, and time away from work and your family).
The webinar above will give you the Science of Networking. Watch the video, take notes, and apply them TODAY! Get an accountability partner, someone that will not let you settle for less than the best you. If you are reading this, you have been invited to this page, and you have a solution the world needs - you solve problems. The problem is, do they know you? You can’t help them if they don’t know you and what you have to offer.
You could advertise. Post your resume to a job board. In fact, you’ve probably tried that and it did not work.
Building a professional network is the most cost effective business tool. It’s a troubled world out there, and they need your help. We can prove this right here: has someone you know contacted you asking for help? Were you able to help them? If you answer yes, then you have just proved the benefits of a network.
It’s probably true that you have also reached into your network to find a solution to a problem. You were able to reach an expert that you needed or made a referral for a friend that needed help. That’s what networks do…and they do it the best. When you have a strong professional network, you become more essential. When you help others solve problems, they trust you more. And we know, people do business with those they “know, like, and trust”.
In the webinar I give you the strategies of the Science of Networking. I also offer an opportunity to request a spot on my calendar. We would get together for a 45 minute call to discuss your network. In that call we will get clear on three things: 1. What’s important to have from your network; 2. What type of network you need to build; and, 3. How you will go about building your ideal network of advocates.
I don’t make this available for everyone. I work with those: who solve problems, are “coachable”; willing to try (and perhaps fail on occasion); willing to put in the hard work to build a network; and, willing to be accountable. If this sounds like you, apply to get on my calendar! Don’t wait - I only have limited spots available.
