Three Of Our Favorite Tips:
- If you’re introverted, re-frame networking in a way that works for you. Instead of worrying about working an entire room at a networking event, focus on finding just one kindred spirit you can connect with.
- Networking is not about sales. Instead, build a relationship. Focus on networking and establishing a partnership. It all starts with trust — not hard sales.
- When you’re out in the world being social, you’ll eventually reach your breaking point where you’re reading to go home. Train yourself in graceful ways to exit social events when you’re ready to leave.
