Networking for Mutual BenefitWhat is Networking for Mutual Benefit

  • “Networking is finding, developing & nurturing Relationships that Mutual Move People forward thru life”
  • Focus on the other person & their needs first. Give & you’ll get permission to ask or talk about yourself
  • It’s not about sales or business, it’s about life, career, business, community, friends & family

How did I develop this?

  • Hired by a guy in WS
  • Dale Carnegie, Sandler Sales Training, Keith Ferrazzi, other great successful people I know and have met

Why is it Better

  • “Grip & Grin, cold calling vs building relationships and getting the people who trust & respect you to help you connect for opportunities”
  • Build relationships for life despite your current career path or business
  • Giving with no expectations is a great feeling
  • When you get permission to ask, the other person wants to help you

How to do it

  • Strive to meet someone new every day
  • Don’t network with the intent of finding business
  • Focus on getting permission to ask 1 question – “Who else do you know that I should meet?”

Who to connect with

  • Start with people who already trust & respect you
  • Weak Ties
  • People who are different
