Whether you’re a businessman, entrepreneur or a student in college, one of the most important skills in life is the ability to network. No matter where you are in the world, networking will allow you to navigate to new heights. The benefits of networking are endless, but in order to reap them, you must start with a change in mindset.
If you are an entrepreneur, I challenge you to follow in my footsteps by accepting a challenge that will ensure that you build a large network of connections within the next month. I will personally guarantee you that upon completing the challenge, you will have obtained over 1000 useful connections within the next year, that will help grow your business. The challenge? Meet 2 new people everyday, for the next year!
This doesn’t mean go up to random strangers and introduce yourself, but instead meet relevant people. Meet people who share the same mentality as yourself. By doing so, you open the doors for endless business opportunities and connections. Ideally the people you meet will be on the same level or doing much better than yourself and will aid you in achieving your goals and biggest ambitions.
There are several ways to go about meeting people that will actually provide value to your life. There is one particular method that I find works best. Get involved in your community! More likely than not, there are frequent assemblies that are dedicated towards the gathering of people doing the same thing as yourself. By finding out where these people meet, you will have the ability to network in person, which is much more effective than through social media! Regularly attend these events and get your name out there. Networking never fails to nourish a business.
