RECAP Oct 8 Grand Connection Business Partner Networking Event With Chella Diaz, Steve Gaston and Blaney Teal

Friday’s joint partner event was the place of inspiration, connection and collaboration.

“Collaboration Requires Connection” – Blaney Teal

Starting us off all was Blaney Teal of MBX. Blaney who shared her top 3 steps for making the connections necessary for building our success…

2) Go into a connection with an abundance mindset – There is more than enough to go around and the truth is not every potential client is going to be a match. Connecting with people in the same niche creates more opportunities for referrals and the widening of both your networks.

3) Use LinkedIn to make new connections – This is the perfect place to research exactly who people are. It is a great option to find new speakers for your event and widen your network reach.

All of a sudden we go from knowledgeable to questioning everything we thought we knew. Asking ourselves questions like; who’s going to listen to us and why should they even bother?

The reality is our audience no matter who they are or where we are presenting to them don’t care if we have it all together inside. They are there to learn and gain valuable knowledge and insight from us as their teacher in that moment.
