What are some of the biggest complaints I hear from sales people and entrepreneurs about getting out there and going to a networking event? They often come down to the words…
What am I going to say? How do I start a conversation? What if I get stuck in a conversation that I can’t get out of?
And worst of all…what do you do when that awkward silence kicks in?
So fear, dread, and assuming the worst things that keep you from getting out there. And possibly meeting the person who might change your business. (Or even your life!)
Here’s the truth: you don’t have to have the perfect opening line. You can make connections just by being yourself. You can gracefully exit awkward conversations without offending anyone, and you can set your focus to naturally draw in the right connections.
And of course, you can do all of this without scripting a single word!
On last week’s episode of Coffee Is For Closers, the ever-awesome Shameca Tankerson and I share how to slay your next networking event, with no “stage fright” or stress required!
Sure, there’s a strategy to it. But at the end of the day, networking is less about what you say and more about how you show up.
It’s about making genuine connections without worrying about forgetting your lines.
Let us show you the way to genuine, stress-free networking so that you can get out there starting right NOW! Because you never know who is out there, just waiting to change your business…don’t let them down by not showing up!
Check out this episode right here:
Up next on Coffee Is For Closers, we’re diving into the next big thing that we entrepreneurs resist like a trip to the dentist…the elevator pitch.
It feels over-rehearsed and fake. It feels “pitchy.” Your pitch sounds like everybody else’s–boring… And seriously, who ever meets anybody on an elevator, anyway??
If you hate the tired idea of the “elevator pitch”, then this episode is for you! I’ll show you how to create an authentic one-liner that catches their attention without sounding over-rehearsed. A tagline that you can use everywhere with ease and confidence (no elevators required)!
