Lifelong business relationships don’t happen with just one encounter. They are forged over a series of meaningful conversations. Networking is a great tool for prospecting but the real gold is found in networking conversations.
Carrie Perrien Smith wrote a book on the topic: Currency: Striking Networking Gold in a Relationship Economy.
In this show, she shares secrets to successful networking: leading conversation, crafting a 60-second commercial, strategically building your network, finding the right places to network, and making a confident first impression.
This is Episode 3. It originally aired on May 7, 2012 on my old network. I am re-broadcasting it to share my older episodes with my new BlogTalkRadio listeners.
