Legacy Club Members at our Medford Village Country Club Networking Event from September 2020.
Building Professional Relationships – Networking is not about making small talk with strangers. It is about regularly engaging with contacts and finding new opportunities to strengthen the connection.
New Ideas – Have you ever heard of the expression “two heads are better than one?” Your network is a great way to gain new perspectives and ideas you may have never thought of on your own. Many of us as business owners have faced unforeseen challenges in the COVID-19 pandemic. With that being said, it is even more of a reason to rely on your network to discuss these challenges & how you could potentially benefit one another.
Gain Knowledge – Your network is great way to stay informed and share valuable information that can help your career or business grow.
Be Visible – An essential part of building your career or business is being visible and getting noticed. Whether you are attending events virtually or in-person it is so important to regularly show your face. Be sure to share your expertise/ideas, remember names, and don’t forget to follow up!
Build Confidence – Get out of your comfort zone! True growth does not come from always staying in your comfort zone. By putting yourself out there & socializing with new people will build your self-confidence and communication skills. The more effort you put in to actively networking then the more you will get out of it!
