Networking, truly is your Superpower!
Networking has truly been ingrained in me from such an early age. Think about it, starting a new school, new activity or even attending new churches! My grandmother would say, “Tell them your name and something about you”! I’ve never really had a problem saying hello and making new friends, it was something that just stuck with me! I’d watch her, she’d light up any room with her presence! I always wanted to be her and exude that confidence. She knew her power was within, not characterized by the worlds standards, and that’s the mark she left on my life! She always showed us how to carry ourselves with confidence and pride, so when I show up today, I carry her with me! I’m forever grateful!
In June, 2015, I attended my first ever 3-day Leadership Summit, hosted by Dress for Success, Worldwide, in Scottsdale Arizona! It was an all-inclusive leadership development trip that changed my life forever! There were women from all over the world, Hawaii, Spain, Columbia, Canada, and Ireland to name a few! I connected with so many leaders, speakers, authors and ladies who had decided that they wanted more from life. I related to that, there was a seed planted in my heart then! I’ve never stopped watering my seeds and gifts! Today, I’ve learned to say Yes, to me!
I’m still connected to many of those ladies, almost five years later!! Here’s what has worked:
- Find a common ground (stay true to YOU)
- Connect on social media and stay in tune by following, commenting and engaging
- Share topics, tips and tools that help inspire others
What are some tools you use to connect with and stay connected?
Be on the lookout for my new book, Networking, it’s your Super Power..it’s coming out in the next month!! I’d love your support!
