Networking these days is becoming more and more important for career related advice. It can be done at any age, any time. Networking should start with an elevator speech. The idea of an “elevator speech” is to have a prepared presentation that grabs attention and says a lot in a few words. What are you going to be saying? By telling your core message, you will be marketing yourself in a way that will make people want to know more about you.
If you want to network with people in a specific field, go to events where you think they’ll be – make your own luck. Opportunities to network may arise from planned events or spontaneously at on- and off-campus functions.
This week on The Networking Diva Hour my co-host will be Kathleen Saltmarsh-Voss, owner of Sip And Splatter – Social Art-working with a Heart. Every Sip and Splatter painting party is a fundraiser that raises money for worthy causes and 30% of the proceeds goes directly to your chosen charity!

Host Lori Wilk welcomes I.R.A. Electric CEO, Ira Kornberg to Successipes to talk about how the service industry is embracing social media networking as a pathway to building more clientele. We are going to learn from other business owners who have years of business experience and how they are taking steps to be involved in Social Media which can expand their reach and influence. http://www.IRAElectric.com. We know that people are connected and the efforts of others can help us. One cool fact I learned about Ira is that he is also a talented multi-media artist. Some of his artwork can be seen at the Clay Glass Metal Stone Gallery located at 15 South J Street, Downtown Lake Worth, a non-profit cooperative of local, 3-d artists.You can e-mail the studio as cGMSGalley@FlamingoClayStudio.Org .
Renee Wilbur is the founder of ReciProty.com. ReciProty is a ground-breaking resource exchange and trusted networking hub that combines the best of business networking, community support, and social media into one robust platform.
ReciProty was inspired by one woman's ability to overcome devastating physical and emotional abuse, serious health issues of loved ones and the untimely deaths of several family members. Additionally, within the business spectrum, she had to learn how to be a top sales leader, a successful small business owner, and one of the best entrepreneurs and visionaries. Through it all, Renee Wilbur would not give up. ReciProty was borne from those struggles, and Renee was re-born as a result. The word "can't" isn't in her vocabulary.
Renee realized that the worldwide web was lacking a premier online global community and networking platform comprised of people who actually know one another on a local level, yet who can connect to the trusted connections of others on a global level. So she created one.
She believes that people naturally want to help others overcome challenges by providing immediate goods or services. ReciProty does this – and more – by quickly connecting members to valuable community or business resources.
Its foundation is composed of interdependent users who touch the lives of others to benefit our children and our future environment. Today, ReciProty includes thousands of members around the globe. ReciProty members connect with each other to share their resources, innovations and trusted business solutions. Members no longer have to flounder for the help, support, resources, marketing and business opportunities they need. With ReciProty, there's no such thing as can't. The impossible becomes possible.
