It is Springtime and the eyes are on you. You have so many networking events to attend. If none are on your calendar you want to add as many as possible. Remember you want to dig the well BEFORE you run out of water. In other words you want to spread the news about your business BEFORE you need the clients.
1- Be sure you have a clear message. A message your audience will understand in less than one minute. You may not have too much time to explain your offer. in a networking setting, so have your elevator speech prepared.
2- Be sure you are joining groups that will benefit from the expertise you bring. The groups that already have collected the people you solve a problem for. Once you join a couple of these be a regular at the events they share. Get to know people at these events before you “verbal vomit” all over them about your business. You will get better results if you ” drip” on them a little at a time about your business
3- Show up to serve more than showing up to GET. People can tell when you have $$$ signs in your eye and not really concerned about them at all. Show up participate and be helpful.. Build some relationships.
4- You also may consider some of your own events such as conference calls, one day seminars or gatherings. The goal is to keep your name in front of your audience. It builds credibility and trust. When you share even when they are not buying when they NEED what you offer they will buy it from you. This is not wasted time it is invested time that brings back HUGE rewards.
5-This the other major factor in how your business is affected, yes, YOUR APPEARANCE. For men a good hair cut, manicured nails and a nice dark suit makes a big difference. There are specific business looks for men such as business, business casual and casual that you want to keep in your closet. For women it is just as important to get your hair done. Invest in the time and money it takes to look your best. Then you will attract the best..If you wear a weave visit www.aspoiledbratshair.com.

There are certain things like a good fitting black skirt every woman should have in their closet.
6- Pay attention to the IMAGE you are putting out there. It will determine who you end up attracting to your business.

7- It takes time to get where you want to go.. Put together a game-plan to get there. Every decision you make takes you further away or closer to your desires. Be patient with yourself but have goals outlined. Then take the steps to achieve them.. It is possible to live the life you design for yourself and those you love.
