Networking Tips

The Golden Rule of Networking - Help others first!

Yes my friends that is the golden rule. Everytime you meet someone, think to yourself how can I help this person? The best networkers are the people who think " who do I know that this person would benefit from meeting"? When you put other peoples' needs ahead of your own you will always benefit in the end.

Blue Tooth

Unless you are part of the Secret Service remove your blue tooth ear piece when you are networking. Your blue tooth doesnt make you look important it makes you unapproachable.

Stand out from the crowd

Today's networking tip - When was the last time you sent somebody a handwritten note to thank them for meeting with you? This simple gesture will leave a positive impression with your potential client.
