At our events for 'The Art of Active Networking', you get to state your case in a clear and concise manner at each and every event, but so many of you fail in saying much of anything at all. Helping people find what they are looking for, and living in their passion in a connected and powerful way is my goal! Finding what you want to do in life, or shifting to what you want is a part of that. In the last 10 days I have met at least 30 people saying, "Mark, you know everybody, can you help me find a job?" As always I say, "Happy to help if I can, what do you want to do, or who do you want to meet?" and they say, "I don't know, anything/anyone I guess, I'm good at a lot of things!"

I'm sorry, I just don't know what to do with that, I have know where to start and no one is going to hire you to do what you don't know you want to do! 

Sound confusing? IT IS!

If you want to work as a product marketer or meet people in a healthcare company, doing events, don't say you want to work in marketing or meet people in healthcare! Instead say I want to meet or be a part of an extraordinary healthcare marketing team doing events that will change people's lives!

If you want to work for an airline as a pilot flying 777's for a major US airline state your case! Then we don't have to ask: "Oh a pilot....what type? Military, small planes, private pilot, commercial like FED X or a major airline? Ok, now what airline? If you say you want to be a pilot, be specific people don't care what you want to do, they hire for what they are looking for, and they can connect you with those they know doing that or close to it! 

Of course these are extreme and specific examples, but my point is STATE YOUR CASE. When you do, we can help, hell, we'll probably 'try' to help you anyway, that's what we do, but throw us a bone here. This all of course applies to anything you are asking for in life!

We can't wait to return to San Francisco this coming Monday October 20th at the Box SF then our return to Los Angeles on October 27th, this time at PYRAMIDO Restaurant, at 4907 Lankershim Blvd. North Hollywood, CA 91601 and then to Vancouver BC with a very special join venture and performance. 

Tickets are always available for each event on our website until 6pm day of the event, or are available for 10 dollars more at the door until 7:30 pm. Please take a look at our Website; read the reviews; join our groups and social media pages on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter; and share this with others at: http://www.TheArtofActiveNetworking.com

The power of us working together is greater than anything we can accomplish alone!

Be Well, Be Creative, Be Great!
