Networking Secret Revealed!
You don’t realize it yet, but in the 2 next minutes you’re going to feel a sense of relief! Think back to when you were a child on the play ground at the age when everyone was your best friend. What were their qualifications to becoming your “best friend?” There really wasn’t much except that you both were there to play, have fun, and enjoy the time outside on the playground!
Have you noticed yet that we as adults have lost the ability to just enjoy time hanging out with others at networking events? Wouldn’t it be amazing if we left the class room / the office in their buildings and came out to play and just have fun with like minded business professionals!? Go to events where you can make friends instead of worrying whether or not they can help you on your next spelling test? Just suppose that you shift your mindset and think, “let’s have fun and connect with cool business minded people that I can play the business game with,” instead of only talking to them because they are an expert at spelling supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and can help you get to the next level!
Now, we can almost hear your mind saying, “That doesn’t work and I need to see the value or an ROI on anything I do when it comes to business networking.” That is a fair statement when it comes to analyzing quantitative date, but these are relationships that we are building. When it comes to people and developing long-term business relationships we first develop a new “best friend” instead of someone that can help us pass our upcoming spelling test.
The fact of the matter is that people will do business more often with their friends and the people they have developed a relationship with than someone they have only meet once at their most recent networking event.
When you attend a Gains Through Giving Social Hour you will discover why so many people develop long-term business relationship and tell their friends about us! It’s because our focus is to associate and attend events with like minded business professionals that want to play and do life with. Out of that come newly created business deals, referrals, introductions, and long-term strategic alliances.
We look forward to meeting you and getting to know you at our next event!
