One Thing: Day 773: How Not To Suck.
Day 773: How Not To Suck.
Yesterday, I gave you a ten-step process to get massive contingency payments from your high-end coaching clients as well as explained what happened when Dangerous Dave’s new girlfriend asked him to go upstairs.
Speaking of Dave, here’s a conversation between us…
Dangerous Dave: KB, what’s wrong you seem distracted.
Me: I am, my daughter told me when she grows up, she wants to be a skydiver.
Dangerous Dave: Doesn’t she forget her backpack at school most days?
In other news…
Marry the person that says ‘you can do this’ / ‘dont stop’ / ‘you got this’ / ‘keep going’ when you’re battling and take a hard pass on the one that says ‘are you done yet’ / ’haven’t you done enough’ / ‘what about me’.
Your One PROFIT ACCELERATION THING Today Is:
‘How to Not Suck at Networking’
Networking is a critical skill of being uber successful in business.
Not the lame BNI style name badge on your chest and speak for 2 minutes when it’s your turn while meeting broke people distracting themselves from hard work.
Networking will help you:
– Find prospects
– Find clients
– Find referral partners
– Find partners
– Find key relationships
– Find value
– Give value
– Think bigger
– Expand what’s possible
Here’s the key to sucking at it:
It’s clinically proven that people don’t want to spend time with boring people… and when they do, they require compensation.
That’s what the study (The Society of Social Psychology) concluded.
KB, how do I not be boring you ask?
Here are some powerful and creative high level networking tips:
– Use the frame ‘what can I GIVE’ versus what can I get
– Be genuinely curious
– Be genuinely interested
– Be interesting and entertaining (don’t over do it too quick)
– Don’t be weird
– Tell great stories
– Provide interesting unknown facts
– Ask interesting questions
– Be Santa rather than The Grinch
– Be different
– Talk about your hobbies / interests / passions
– Talk about their hobbies / interests / passions
– Talk about popular current events in an interesting way (not a lame opinionated
way which is French for ‘talking at them’)
– Know / understand macro topics
* I talked about Elon Musk changing the face of Real Estate on my podcast this week. Elon is a very popular conversation piece right now but this point of view is well outside the scope of current narrative.
