1. YOU ARE THE FACE OF YOUR BUSINESS
· IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF OR YOUR BUSINESS, NEITHER WILL OTHERS
· PEOPLE CONNECT WITH YOU BEFORE THEY CONNECT WITH YOUR BUSINESS
· 1ST IMPRESSIONS ARE EVERYTHING
2. LOOK BEYOND BUSINESS AND REFERRALS AND FIND OPPORTUNITIES
· ITS NOT ALWAYS ABOUT BUSINESS. LEARN THE VALUE OF RELATIONSHIPS
· LOOK TO COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS
· BE OPEN TO CHANGE
3. MASTER YOUR PITCH
· PRACTICE EXPLAINING YOUR BUSINESS IN 1MIN, 30 SEC, 10 SEC
· YOU ARE ONE PERSON AWAY FROM YOUR BREAKTHROUGH, DON’T MISS IT BECAUSE YOU CANNOT PITCH YOUR BUSINESS EFFECTIVELY
4. GET OUT YOUR COMFORT ZONE
· BE WILLING TO WORK WITH OTHERS OUTSIDE YOUR CIRCLE
· DIVERSITY IS THE SPICE OF LIFE
· LEARN TO SWIM IN VARIOUS PONDS
5. FIND WHAT CIRCLES WORK BEST FOR YOU
· FIND A REGULAR NETWORKING GROUP TO CONNECT WITH THAT FITS WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND WHERE YOU ARE TRYING TO GO
· FIND A GROUP THAT YOU CAN GROW FROM, BE VALUED, AND LEARN
