Leadership Business & Networking Events

Are you networking offline and driving traffic to your online blog, personal website, business website or Facebook page?

Networking events can be a fabulous way to get yourself out in the local area to meet up with other like minded business people and Network Marketers.  They are very open minded about business because they are in business!

Yes you will meet people who have a business already and they will most likely want you in theirs too or of course want you as a customer and that's ok!

First and formost present yourself as a professional.  The best thing to do is walk into a networking event or meeting with the idea of helping and connecting other people.   When you show a genuine concern for others and find out how you can help them they are going to be more open to what you do too!

Make it about THEM!  Find out all about their business, what they do, why are they doing what they do and how's it going for them.  What sort of clients or customers are they looking for?

Recently I had an opportunity to attend a Your Local City networking event here in Austin.   First thing I did was make sure I had plenty of business cards.    The entire room was buzzing with activity.  People  were very open to greeting and networking.

Here's a few networking tips!

When walking in have a BIG smile on your face and look people in the eye when speaking with them.    Put out your hand to shake there's and take their business card and ask them about their business.  If they have a drawing sign up for it!   Let them tell you all about their product or service.

Give them your card.  Some people will immediately reciprocate and asked for your card first after you've taken the time to ask them about their business and express an interest and have taken their card and/or information and if not just hand yours to them.

If you do not have the funds right away to set up your own booth at a fair, networking event, health fair - there are a few things you could do.  

1 - If you 
have a local group within your own team or even cross-line you could go in on the cost of the booth together as a team.

2 -Attend the event yourself and network with the vendors, always request THEIR business card FIRST and then hand them yours.   Call them later to find out how they did at the event.  Start the conversation out something like this -  "Joe we met at such and such event last week and I wanted to find out how the event was for you?  Have you done many of these type events?"  "Would you do it again?"  Ask them about their business and who would be a good referral for them?  They just might return the favor!   

When you get home be sure you put all of your business contacts in your contact data base and send them a nice to meet you card, or an email letting them know you enjoyed meeting and hearing more about their business and to please let you know how you can help them in the future and you look forward to seeing them again at a future event or whatever conversation or connection you may have had with a particular person.

Be sure you look them up on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn,  and connect with them there.

Keep the focus on them while there because it's their booth!

To Your Networking Success!

Focused on Leadership and Business Topics



There are many elements that go into making a business successful. If you are looking for a time-efficient way to build your skills and knowledge, this is a great opportunity for you.



This program, featuring Randy Mayeux, has been highly successful in Dallas. We are excited to bring it to Austin. It's the perfect program for leaders - and those who aspire to be.


One of the books we discussed was -

'Multipliers' How The Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter'


Excerpt:  Some leaders make us better and smarter. They bring out our intelligence. We call them Multipliers.

Some leaders seemed to drain intelligence and capability out of the people around them.  Their focus on their own intelligence and their resolve to be the smartest person in the room had a diminishing effect on everyone else. These are Diminisher's.

Diminishers appear to believe that really intelligent people are a rare breed and I'm one of the few really smart people. They then conclude, other people will never figure things out without me. 

Multipliers hold very different assumptions.  Multipliers have a rich view of the intelligence of the people around them.  They assume: People are smart and will figure it out.  Multipliers expect great things from their people and they drive people to achieve extraordinary results.  Multipliers operate as Talent Magnets.  They attract talented people and then use them to their fullest.
