Networking 101 | Coffee is for Closers
You’ve always heard that it’s not what you know but WHO you know. Of course, the best relationships are two-way streets.
That is the goal of in-person business networking. You establish real-life connections and create win-win situations. And I had a big-time win-win happen for me at an event a few weeks ago.
It was an event called Secret Knock. When I got there, I ran into a young man named Eric. I started a conversation, thinking that I’d make a new connection and share my expertise. We started chatting away and hit it off.
I had mentioned I’m looking for unique guests for my podcast, Success Unfiltered! He knew Kevin Harrington, a Shark Tank original. I figured I’d try my luck at connection, as I knew he’d be a perfect fit for a guest spot on my podcast.
But I had no idea what was about to happen…
I mentioned that I pitched on Shark Tank. He asked me if I knew Kevin Harrington. Turns out my new friend Eric was a friend of the famous former Shark. So I asked if he’d introduce me.
Not only did Eric say YES...he also said, “Let’s do it right NOW!”
So Eric shot a quick selfie video so I could say my “hello.” Then he texted the video to Kevin Harrington himself, and copied me on the text.
Not only did I meet my person of
interest, I got his cell
phone number. All
because I took the time to chat with someone new in the spirit of
service and connection.
And guess what? This past week I got my interview with Mr. Harrington himself!!
Networking is priceless. You never know who you might meet. And that one person that you casually strike up a chat with just might change your business!
But what if you hate the idea of trying to make a connection in a room full of strangers? What if you’re so freaked out about real-time convos that you always stay home?
Don’t let fear cheat you out of making a potentially life-changing connection! On this episode, I show you how to make a plan, perk up your courage, and get out there with confidence.
