You’ve probably heard the following question more than 100 times in your life: “How are you?” Well I bet you haven’t heard an answer to that question like this one, from my guest Cami Baker – “I’m fabulous, fearless, and on fire!” Because wouldn’t you agree that an answer like “fine”, “good”, or “ok” simply doesn’t create a memorable impact on the other person, or even on ourselves? If you say you are fine, then you’ll be just fine, but if you say you are on fire…then you’ll definitely start feeling like you are on fire, like your invincible and ready to take on the world!
Because when it comes to networking, one of the top secrets is that your energy will precede you – meaning if you get pumped up before an event, you’ll be more lively and energetic and attract more people to you. But if you come into it scared, insecure, and timid, you’ll likely end up in the corner scrolling through your phone. But hey, we are all human, and guess what – another big secret we discuss in this episode is that everyone else is just as nervous about networking as you are, so don’t be afraid to make the first move!
Here are some great tips from my interview with Cami:
Tuesday Tips to Thrive:
1. Networking opportunities don’t just occur at scheduled events. Network when in line for Starbucks or at a PTA meeting, because I never know who I might run into.
2. Identify who I want to be, and surround myself with successful people in that field. When I go into a room with those people, listen and learn.
3. People love to talk about themselves. Keep this question in my back pocket for networking – “What are you working on right now?”
