Number 5: Be Helpful
Although it may come as no surprise, it is always important to remember just how beneficial it is to be helpful to those around you.
Your network will grow positively because of your ability to be a benefit to them, and the best part is, this relationship works both ways too. By becoming a resource for your peers, colleagues, and those within your network, your brand will remain at the forefront of their collective minds.
Talk about a win-win relationship!
Number 4: Remain Visible
Mystique is a thing of the past.
What really helps you grow your network, and subsequently your business, is your ability to remain visible to the world around you. In 2022, no one has the time to go digging for who you are, what you do, and how your business or brand might be of benefit to them.
When we connect today, we’re looking to trim-the-fat of the conversation and get to the bottom of what we can do for one another. Remaining visible by maintaining a strong social media presence and connecting with your network as often as possible are surefire ways to make a lasting impression for good.
Number 3: Start the Conversation
If you’re looking for a seat at the table: take a seat!
Everyone has a story to tell, and yours won’t tell itself. By being your own advocate, you allow yourself the ability to grow at a pace you desire. Meet new people, introduce yourself and your brand, and most importantly, tell your story on your own terms.
Number 2: Take Risks
Ask yourself how you got here in the first place. Remember those risks you took in starting your business that you second guessed at the time? Good.
We do ourselves no favors if we never try. Taking things one-step-at-a-time and remaining open minded is a great recipe for success in all endeavors. Allowing ourselves to potentially fail opens up an endless opportunity to succeed.
Courageous connecting is infectious!
