So many people put the cart before the horse: 1) Meet people, 2) Get business, and they 3) have a lower value on opportunity to learn. Steve from Lisa Sasevich Speak To Sell Training shares how he came to the event to 1) Learn new ways to succeed and 2) came away meeting people 3) having the bonus of people wanting to do business with him!
Steve realized there is a lot to learn when it comes to making connections. It all began with his determination to to learn and to get information about how he can grow his own business. What he learned was that making connections with other business owners is pretty useful since they also want to take advantage of the service that he provided and vice versa. It is an eye-opener to what the possibilities are really.
A lot of people approach networking as a way to get business and then they end up learning. In Steve’s case he came for the learning, the professional development and the information. Because he focused on that big picture, he had the side benefit of people being magnetized to get to know him and want to do business with him.
