Radical Networking PLUS a Fab Freebie!
Networking can be tricky. Most of the time, people will judge you within the first couple of seconds of meeting you and once they form an initial opinion of you, it probably won't change. This is why making a good first impression is so important. You only get one chance…why not make it a FAB one?
There a few ways that you can make sure people see the best of you and judge you accurately. Your goal should be to give people an authentic impression — it's easy to spot when people are being fake.
Make a Game Plan: Before you head to the event, think about what kind of people you want to meet and the kind of relationships you want to build. Are you looking for business partners? Investors? Friends? Focus on your goal and the kind of energy you want to give off during the event. Like attracts like.
FAB-u-lous! This was packed with some great pointers, all spelled out for those of us (guilty) who *think* we are good at remembering things! I need to make a plan, definitely. And also try to figure out my own cluster! I admit I’m not great with the clustering thing, esp since I’m all about alternate options, which automatically makes me a card-carrying member of Over-Packers Anonymous… But with these helpful hints, and plenty of time to plan, I think I can effectively tackle this! Yes, YES!
