  • Partnership – Buddy system; Show Up, Find Events that you can be present at; share info with each other; find someone to go with to open houses, attend networking events, et.
  • Remember Seven Points of Contact; 1st time meeting a person is to get to know about them.
  • Forgot person’s name – Okay to call yourself out if you don’t remember their name; be honest;
  • Two questions should always ask:  How can I help you?  Who are good referrals to send your way? Who do you know that would be good for me to meet with?  Expand our networks.  
  • Be more interested in the other person, than you are interested in telling about yourself.
  • Open Houses – Have a Brand Ambassador; wing people to talk about your business
  • Build relationships with people; don’t try to sell something
  • Prepare, go into networking events with a plan; make genuine connections;  get 3 business cards from people; have 3 conversations with new contacts.
