This week next level entrepreneur, and son of a physician, Mr. Brandon "the Network King" Alexander and I chatted about the Art of Networking this episode.
Highlights from the conversation:
-Networking is all about having a conversation
-Sometimes as introverts, we steer away from networking b/c it feels overwhelming or like it will be draining, but with specific intention, you can avoid that feeling
-The key is setting an intention and a strategy before the networking event
-Many times we are so in our heads about saying the wrong thing, we forget that everyone else is likely feeling the same way.
-Taking action is the only way to overcome the inertia
-Taking action can be as simple as saying "hi" and making some small talk to break the ice
-Focus on commonalities in the beginning to get related
-Get to the point, and invite them to connect outside the event.
