Happy New Year! Here’s to a successful and stupendous year full of love, laughter and many wonderful moments.
Just about every person I have spoken to over the last couple of months has commented on just how fast 2011 came and went! Why is that? My theory is that we are all so overwhelmed and time-poor these days that we simply don’t have the time or the energy to enjoy it!
I have been running a network, talking about networking, and training people in how to network for the last 13 years and it amazes me how many learn the skills, make the initial plan and then run out of time to do anything about it! I know this only too well as I have battled the time monster for many years myself!
Life is easier, slower and much more enjoyable when it is filled with authentic, valuable and respected business and personal connections. We are sociable creatures who thrive on support, acceptance and encouragement from others. Build a strong network and save time in the long run by having a support, referral and friendship network at your fingertips. Be a connector and know instantly who to connect with who when they need it, or at the very least know where to go to find the information you need. You’ll become the go to person for information and also be top of mind to a wealth of referrers of roles, staff and business. Not only this, network from the heart and you’ll have a great time in the process! Remember, people do business with people they like so we may as well collect people WE like!
I am thrilled to launch Networking Mentor. I just know it will help so many of us make sense of it all. It has certainly worked for me! Check out the details at www.networkingmentor.com.au and let me know if I can help you in any way 🙂
Until we connect, enjoy January!
