    Think Outside The Box/Julie M. Davis/Transformational Speaker

    in Entrepreneur

    This week, on The Networking Diva Hour/ Thinking outside the box is all about changing your perspective and slipping into the role of another person can support you thereby. You don’t necessarily have to slip into the role of your parents, friends, colleagues and neighbors, as most of them might have pretty similar knowledge and opinions about the world as you have.  By slipping into a new role you can change your perspective and the way you think about things drastically. You can feel free to take yourself some minutes to let your gaze wander through your environment and to discover all the new things you didn’t even noticed before. If you are sitting in your living room you could pick up whatever looks interesting to you and discover the item all over again. You might even notice something about this item that you haven’t known until this moment

    Attitude Of Gratitude !/Terza Ekholm/The TerZa Factor

    in Entrepreneur

    This week on The Networking Diva Hour-Adopting an Attitude of Gratitude practice takes you out of problem and toward a solution. It removes you from complaining mode and into a best-outcomes mindset. That’s a skill you need in your life and in your business decision-making. Whole companies and industries have been created from seeing solutions where others only saw obstacles. What will your contribution be?


    For something to change in your life, one of two things has to happen: your life changes, or you do. Waiting for life to change is a pretty passive solution. When you’re stuck in a problem mentality you miss out on all the opportunities for solutions that are knocking on your door every day, simply because you don’t even hear them or see them.


    My guest host this week is Terza Ekholm with the TerZa Factor.  Terza is a long time resident of Colorado Springs and a Gratitude Coach, Artist, and Real Estate Investor. Gratitude: Not Just for Cards Anymore.

    Stop Networking and Start Making Money

    in Business

    I'm talking about "networking." Sure, I've been hearing all about networking for years. I've even used the word myself!

    But when you get down to it, networking is cold, sterile… And it seems self-serving: one person trying to form a web of contacts whose sole purpose is to do something for him.

    That's not how I want to do business.

    . I think of it as "What can we do for each other and each other's communities?" instead of "What can you do for me?"

    When I focus on these goals, deals follow. And when a deal is made between two people (notice I did not say two businesses) who have connected - as opposed to "networked" - money usually follows.

    Making a connection does require a bit more "work" than simply shoving your business card at a potential client. But the extra money you can make and the new opportunities you can open up to your community are well worth the extra effort.
     



    There was no "Hi, how are you?" Nice to see you again." Or even "How are your children?" It was just the typical "WIIFM" approach


     


    My first thought was - do you really think this kind of behavior is conducive to me wanting to do business with you? But what I said was, "Yes, Sue, I received the email on Thursday. I left for LA (this event) on Monday. I was planning on returning your email later in the week."

    This is a wonderful example of why many people do not end up with business from networking events. They have not mastered event etiquette.  Nor have they discovered the best way to make lasting connections.
