Ignore Mom’s Advice & DO Talk to Strangers – How to Overcome Your Fear of Networking & Build Strong Relationships for Business Success

Fortunately or unfortunately, networking and building relationships goes along with the territory when you’re on a mission and looking for your next opportunity. So it’s important to overcome feeling intimidated and uncomfortable. It’s easy to think (or hope) you can skip in-person events and simply build your business through online relationships. But in reality, you live in a world with other humans. And humans are still wired to connect inter-personally. Which means your business success depends on you managing your fear of networking, going out and having face to face conversations as you develop relationships with those other humans.

In this session, participants learn
• What networking is and is not
• Why online networking/marketing is not enough
• 3 tips for feeling more comfortable at networking events
• The most common networking mistake business people make, and how to avoid it
• How to convert conversations into continuing connections

Lori Saitz, The Quiet Girls (a Zen Rabbit company)

A networking strategy coach and speaker, who helps other “quiet girls” (and guys) get past their fear of networking so they can find success in their business lives.
