WHETHER IT’S THE FIRST TIME I AM MEETING SOMEONE OR THE 100TH, I AM ALWAYS EXCITED FOR THE CONVERSATION!
Now let’s get clear, I don’t like or enjoy networking or networking events. So why do I run a networking organization?
You see I need business like you do but I am rarely pushing that.
I certainly don’t need more connections, I’m pretty set.
I don’t need new friends, I like all the ones I have.
I don’t really date so that’s not the reason.
I do my events and travel all over the world not because I need anything, but because I am curious about people. I love hearing your story, I love connecting you with the massive network I have, and I love meeting others. If I can in someway help them to do a little better or to find what they want I am in! I don’t like the events where we stare at name tags and toss business cards about blindly, I don’t have empty conversations.
I created GIVE 4 last year and I practice it daily. I ask those I meet to also practice GIVE 4 which means to give at least 4 hours a week in one or all of the following 4 ways:
I give of my ideas and talent to help others.
I give money as often as I am able.
I give of my time volunteering for many non-profits and to help others struggling.
Finally, I give of my network and referrals.
And I spend at least 4 hours a week doing so.
I think it is important to help others and I believe it is critical that we work together.
My next event is Monday, March 16th in Vancouver BC. We already have a great crowd coming, I hope you will join us and meet those in my network.
So if you want to meet extraordinary people for the right reasons, we’ll see you Monday night!
Tickets are available for this event on our website until 6:00pm 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!
