On Fridays, I bring you the best work and life tips and tricks I found this week. And we call it Four For Friday. Welcome! Let’s talk about networking. I go to networking events at least three times a month – I’m a leader for Rising Tide’s Pasadena Tuesdays Together Group. Even though the business world today seems like a digital one, the most productive interactions are still done face to face. Plus, it gets you out of the house! Here are the four best tips I found this week to enhance your networking experience:
The Revolutionary Club: The 7 Networking Commandments (That No One Talks About) – Not everyone is…great about talking to strangers. These are great tips to keep in mind the next time you step into the room. Commandment #6 will change your life. And probably your business.
Misha Yurchenko – How I Used the 80/20 Rule To Get the Most Out Of Networking Events – That’s 80 percent listening, 20 percent talking. Find out how to make that work.
The One Thing We’re All Afraid Of
Peg Fitzgerald – How to Promote Yourself Without Being A Jerk – Using the rules of social media to translate into one-on-one encounters and vice versa. I laughed out loud when I read this headline!
Networking isn’t about collecting contacts. It’s about building relationships. – Falon Fatemi
