Networking Tips

The Golden Rule of Networking - Help others first!

Yes my friends that is the golden rule. Everytime you meet someone, think to yourself how can I help this person? The best networkers are the people who think " who do I know that this person would benefit from meeting"? When you put other peoples' needs ahead of your own you will always benefit in the end.

Blue Tooth

Unless you are part of the Secret Service remove your blue tooth ear piece when you are networking. Your blue tooth doesnt make you look important it makes you unapproachable.

Does your Mother know you do that?

Today’s Networking Tip – Does your mother know that you do that? I have found that many people never take the time to make sure that their family understands what they do for a living and who a good referral is for them. Remember your referrals will come from people who know like and trust you so don’t miss out on a great source of referrals tell your family how they can help you grow your business.

Stand out from the crowd

Today's networking tip - When was the last time you sent somebody a handwritten note to thank them for meeting with you? This simple gesture will leave a positive impression with your potential client.
