How to Network with Dream Connections - Rule #1
You just don't know where networking can take place, or what it entails.
I can only tell you that you must do it, consistently, because the moment will come.
You'll be in the company of someone with the power to elevate your game ...
... but if you don't understand how networking works, you'll miss the moment.
Don't be the guy or gal who doesn't know what to say.
Rule #1 is Focus on the Farm Team.
I'm elevating this to the top rule because it leads to all the others.
If you do this for average, everyday people you meet, you'll be ready for bigger fish.
How it works: you become a scout, a publicist and a therapist for people you meet.
The scout finds opportunities, new connections and resources people want.
Much like a talent scout goes looking for talent, you keep your network on your radar.
When you hear of people, opportunities and things you know they'd like ...
... you connect them, and let them pursue those gifts further.
The publicist uses their connections, platform and hustle to make others look good.
You can do podcast interviews, on-site film tours, favorable write-ups or
recommend and nominate people for awards, roles and recognition.
The therapist asks the "Three Big Questions" of anyone they meet:
"What's going well for you lately?"
"What's not going so well?
"What are you looking forward to?"
They make mental or handwritten notes of the answers, because they can
leverage their networks to transition into being a scout or a publicist.
Proverbs 30:28 says that "A lizard can be caught with the hand, yet it is found
in kings' palaces." Be like a lizard - nimble, agile, willing to part with appendages like
your tail, moving quickly when you see an opportunity. Lizards get into kings'
palaces because they know all the nooks and crannies of the
building; they know who to talk to, how to approach, the right time to
appear and the right time to disappear.
We're looking for people who want to end up in rooms they have no
business being in. A great place to start that is the Influencer Networking Secrets
