Tips For Networking

Today I wanted to share a few tips on Networking.

Why Networking?

Well it’s no secret that well connected people are usually the most successful when it comes to building or running a business online or offline. I won’t try to explain why in this post today but instead wanted to offer some tips that will really help you build a large network.handshake

#1. Attend Event

Attending local, regional and national events and seminars is one of the best ways to meet and interact with people in your niche. You may consider attending a local event that you find on Meetup.com . There are many many local groups that hold weekly and monthly meetings you can tap into. Also look for larger events in your area or across the country. “You Never Know” is one of my favorite sayings and when it comes to attending large events…ya never know who you are going to meet or what connections you will make that will have a huge impact for you in the future.

#2. Network On Facebook

Second to attending events is networking on Facebook. This tool has really opened up the whole world to all of us. Make sure you are following and having positive interactions with people you meet. Remember Facebook is not a place to push your business on others. I prefer to do genuine networking and then make the proper invitation at the right time if it makes sense.

#3. Keep track of everyone you ever meet

One of my mentors taught me a long time ago that you should take note of everyone you ever meet or interact with. Record their names and important information like , email, address, birthdays and make a note about how you met them. Then any time you have contact with them you log it. You will be amazed when you do this how fast your network will grow because you are actually keeping track of them. This will be your MOST valuable asset in your business going forward. You don’t have to be perfect at organization…just keep track.

#4. Have regular contact with your network

Make sure that at least 3 to 4 times a year you have some kind of contact with your network. Birthday cards, Hand written notes and gifts, Phone calls just to see how they are doing, emails and facebook messages just to say “Hi”. This is a super important step as you want to make sure you nourish your network.

#5. Connect your network together

One of my mentors suggested this to me and it works wonders. Once or twice a week I always try to introduce people in my network to each other. I try to find people in the same niche or business and just make an email or Skype introduction. It just takes a few minutes each week and it shows that you really care about the people you interact with. It also has a side benefit… many people you do this with will also introduce you to their network!

If you want to start or grow any type of business, networking is really an activity that you want to work on. In fact it may be the MOST important activity for a long term business. You never know when things will change in your life. If you build a large network, you will always have something to help you out of the hard times or inspire you to greatness.

Are You Filling Buckets Or Building A Pipeline?

Take a close look at your life right now and ask yourself this important question:

“Am I filling buckets or building a pipeline?”

What you ask am I talking about you ask?bucket

Think of it this way. Say you discovered oil on your property. Wow you are rich right? Not yet. You have to move that oil so it can be sold and in fact lets say you have to move it 5 miles from where you are at.

How To Get The Internet To Make Your Mortgage Payment

Do you have a mortgage or rent payment? Most of us do. I’m sure the favorite part of your month is making that monthly payment right?

Ya right!

Doesn’t it seem like those payments are always just a little more than we would like them to be and by the time we write that check there is not much left? One of my mentors tells the story of how he could never save more than $200 in his bank account between paycheck to paycheck…the idea of not having a house payment was really a dream to him.house

Did you know that most bankruptcies could be prevented if people had just an extra $200 to $300 a month?

There are a lot of programs out there that teach you how to save money. These are all really good but there is one way that trumps all of these money-saving programs. Continue reading

What Millionaires Are Really Like

Is Doubt Holding You Back?

Have you ever wondered why certain people just seam to attract success in their lives? Not just financial but all so many other areas such emotional, spiritual and just genuine happiness?

There are several factors that contribute to this but one very important trait is usually found in most successful people…thinking-man

They don’t let “Doubt” hold them back or get in the way.

Know Your Big Why?

As you’re working your home business, there will be times when you’ll wonder whether what you are doing is working. Sometimes you’ll get immediate results, but most of the time it won’t happen that way.know-your-big-why

Having the Right Attitude for Success

Having the Right Attitude for Success

Your attitude is vital to your business success. In fact, I would almost say it’s even more important than learning the skills.

Obviously, you need to learn the nuts and bolts of your business – how to write a blog post, how to market that blog post, how to build your email list, and develop a relationship with those on your list, etc.Having-the-Right-Attitude-for-Success

But without the right attitude, these things are just tools lying unused in the tool shed.

The attitude is what will help you put those tools to work.

So, what kind of attitude should you be focused on? Continue reading

Why Invest In Yourself?

People are sometimes strange creatures…

 We many times invest in:

- Watching hours and hours of TV
– Play mind-numbing video games
– Education to get a college degree in something that doesn’t help our career
– Gambling
– The Stock Market (Can be another form of gambling to a point!)
– Drinking to excess

There are many things we invest in over our lives and I’m not trying to knock any of the things I mentioned about, but many of those activities, if spent a lot of time on can really make your life miserable and get us into a lot of financial problems and debt.You

What does it mean to INVEST IN YOURSELF?

Here is what I think… Continue reading
