TIME-STAMPED SHOW NOTES:

  • [00:27] Today’s Topic: The Introverts Guide to Networking
  • [00:48] Eric is an introvert, so networking was a struggle.
  • [01:18] Eric and his friend had no idea what to do at their first event. Then they realized that other people were just as introverted.
  • [01:40] At future events, they just introduced themselves to anyone in the room they wanted to speak with. It was a simple opening to future connections.
  • [02:08] Storytelling is an important way to connect with others.
  • [02:15] When people feel that they know and understand you, they will connect with you.
  • [02:40] When people feel a commonality, they are more likely to work and connect with you.
  • [03:00] Don’t force connections, just find truths and similarities that can facilitate a bond.
  • [03:35] Don’t be the person just throwing their business cards at every single person.
  • [03:55] Start with building ONE strong relationship.
  • [04:20] You can throw dinners for like-minded people (Mastermind Dinners).
  • [05:01] It’s not how many people you meet, but the quality of the connections.
  • [05:15] Drinking isn’t necessary, but it loosens people up.
