Networking at it's finest - 1 Simple Tip

Networking at it's finest - 1 Simple Tip

 

 

Last weekend we decided to have an impromptu pool party and BBQ on Sunday. I called 5 sets of friends and all of them happened to be free on Sunday. Yea!  Party time!  Everyone came,  swimming suits & towels in hand around 4:00. Everyone brought a side dish or munchie along with a beverage.  Within minutes everyone was in the pool floating around on noodles and sipping on Gary's famous margaritas and chatting away with each other. Fun!

 

About an hour into the party somebody asked me how I met one of our guests. That's when it occurred to me that I had met them all at a networking group and had known all of them for many years. We all looked around with amazement.

 

 

 

WOW - networking really is FUN somebody shouted out!

 

We all met at the same networking group - just not at the same time. Several years back I dropped out of the group but continued to keep in touch with some of the members that I had really connected with and were like-minded. We all continued to refer clients to each other and using each others services. 3 of them became my clients, selling and/or buying homes and one will soon be working for me.  We all became good friends with each other along the journey.  And it doesn't get any better than that folks...

 

 

1 Simple Networking Tip

 

When you connect with like-minded business people get to know them - and I mean GET TO KNOW THEM. Find out about what makes them 'tick' and how you can help them with their business. Ask about their families, their dreams, their passions.  Make it about them - not you. Trust me on this - it works - if you take the time to care about others. Once they know you are sincere and genuine is when the magic begins...
