Let Your Smile be Your Calling Card

Bet You Haven’t Thought of These Networking Opportunities

Have you considered networking opportunities other than events? If you agree with me that networking is one of the surest ways to expand your horizons wouldn't it make sense to look for networking opportunities beyond the norm?

Always be Helping — Help Networking

So, what is help networking? There was a saying when I was learning sales, always be closing. The way I was taught the ABC’s of selling didn’t make sense to me. When I was always closing, I wasn’t listening, learning, and helping clients solve problems. I made a lot of sales, because I was overbearing [...]
