You Don’t Have to be Alone!
As we spend so much time on-line these days it’s getting more and more easier just to speak and network with people on-line and leave it at that. But I hear more and more people struggling as they feel alone or they haven’t anyone around them that understands their challenges, yes they spend time with clients / customers and have business meetings but in general they spend most of their time on their own building there business or making connections on-line.
All of this is perfectly okay but we must, you MUST take time (I’m not saying hours) to meet people off-line too, take those relationships to another level by stepping away from the laptop and meet face to face it’s so important to build up a strong network around you who you can turn to in a time of need and by “need” I mean those that are going to lift you up, those that will give you HONEST feedback when you need it and you of course can give them any support they need to – I’ll add you can hire a business / life coach or join a mastermind group they are great but you also need those that you can go for a coffee with or those that you can call upon on the off chance they are free.
It’s the same when you go to a networking event connect again with those that are not only going to be beneficial business wise for you but connect again with those that you have “clicked” with too.
So I’ll end with saying you do not have to be alone take some time to build up a personal business network, you will make some great friends for support and I’m pretty sure you will get some business VISIBILITY out of it too, I’m not saying you should expect it but friends like nothing more than recommending their friends to others….well I do anyway 🙂
So today make plans to step away from the laptop and start to build a personal business network around you, you can also join one of my Facebook communities for business join Business Visibility – Be Social, Be Visible! or for light hearted fun and support join Hustle & Juggle – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly! or why not join BOTH!
