The best thing that has ever happened for the networking introvert is Zoom! It saves getting sweaty palms when walking into a roomful of people you may not know! (Maybe it’s MORE than sweaty palms; perhaps closer to nausea followed by abject terror.) “Good grief!”, you may think! “How am I ever going to build a new business when I don’t like being in crowds?”
Relax! Some famous introverts have built amazing power relationships and success: think Bill Gates, Meryl Streep, JK Rowling, Steven Spielberg, Elon Musk, and Eleanor Roosevelt for starters.
But networking can open lots of doors, not through being in front of a lot of people, but by gathering in small groups and building continuous deep relationships…. which is, by the way, exactly how I built my business that has supported me for over 3 decades so it works for more than just introverts.
I became involved in having breakfast every week with some high quality local professionals who were committed to helping me succeed, and I made the same commitment to them. They have been responsible for creating as much as 70% of my business at one point. They also kept me together through the Pandemic.
I have an invitation for you below to join me for one of those breakfasts and see how it works – and you don’t have to be an extrovert!! I am going to be speaking on Thursday December 2 at 7 AM PST about “Purpose, Passion, Performance!” It’s all about lighting your fire for best results!
You may have heard of BNI – Business Networking International which has recently passed 9.8 million referrals which resulted in more than $162 billion in business – and you can be one of them!
Join me as my guest on zoom the day I present – it costs nothing just to check it out – and get some passion talk!! Just pre-register at https://bit.ly/3kH073M to be my guest, and I’ll forward so they’ll send you the zoom link!! I’ll follow up with you as well.
And great good is what I wish all of you this season.
