Be Interested, not interesting !

When you are in a networking setting trying to get more referrals, or prospects, we tend to try to make ourself seem more interesting.

Although it will work sometimes, most of the time it doesn't work. Usually others will be pretentious in listening to you. There is an easier way to network and that is to sincerely be interested in others.

People by nature love attention, they enjoy to be listened to and will most often share more information if they feel more connected to us.

If you can be sincerely interested in them they will appreciate you and could potentially spark a powerful friendship

I think Sales should be fun and if you put in your mind that your customer is really your business friends, you will enjoy your life more.

Best of luck to you, and thanks for tuning in.


Light the fun in you!
