Three Things We Learned
Stick with old-school principles
We’ve all heard sayings about giving something to get something. The reason these phrases have stood the test of time is because they’re still true to this day. When networking, lead with value. Go into interactions with the intention to give value of some kind. Your actions will be rewarded if you use this approach without expecting anything in return.
Change your mindset
Negativity is the main thing holding most of us back. Change your mindset and make yourself believe you have what it takes to be successful. Until you change your mindset, you won’t be able to progress.
Get the “old guard” on board
When you’re starting out in a new industry, it’s a good idea to approach those who have been successful in the business for a while. Study them, and find out what they’re about and what they need. They have the power to influence others in the industry, so leave a good impression.
Networking is vital. If done correctly, it has the power to help your business skyrocket. Lead with value, make connections, and enter with no expectation of reward. Know yourself and what you can bring to the table. Remember: you’re capable of delivering. Tell yourself you can, and start taking action.
