If you've been thinking, "I need to do more networking" but aren't sure how to get started, now's your chance to get support--the kind of support that will make all the difference.
In October, I'm starting a 3-teleseminar series, Networking Naturally Program: Less Stress, More Joy, Better Results.
We'll meet for three consecutive Tuesdays over the phone (or listen over the Internet), 75-minutes each time. Here are a few tips to give you a taste of what you'll learn in the program:
It's been a ton of work over the last few months to put all the pieces in place (systems, staff, process). At times, I forgot to have fun. I wondered if I had gotten myself into an endless do-loop.
This week, I remembered why I'm doing this work. I received a call from someone who had participated in the pilot of this program, last April. She started off by saying, "I didn't want to email you. I felt like I wanted to call you instead. I just want to tell you that things are falling into place for me, and it's all because of networking!"
We talked more and I could see that while this person had "done her homework," participating in the Networking Naturally Program made the difference between showing up, or going through life waiting for a tap on the shoulder. This woman decided to show up. She connected with others who could make use of her gifts and offer up new opportunities.
I forget that for many, it's hard to "put yourself out there." That's why your attitude about networking makes such a big difference. If connecting with others is about giving and being of service, it's a heck of a lot easier than if you've got a Gremlin saying, "Who would want to talk to you?"
Give first before asking for anything. That's just one of the principles that I'll be teaching this fall in the Networking Naturally Program. I hope you'll join me. Early registration ends on September 25, so don't delay.
BTW--this work is the reason I've recently been absent from this blog for weeks at a time. I miss having time to write, create, and ponder. I'm hoping to re-connect with my muse in the coming weeks....
