Hello all my beautiful friends! Just want to remind everyone that while this will be a social event, keep your eye on the prize -- it's all about making money in a positive way, and having fun while doing it. There will be incredible networking opportunities tonight, so please make use of your time in a productive way. Let's not just connect with people we are familiar with. Feel free to approach unfamiliar faces -- ask questions -- listen -- connect. When giving your elevator pitch, make it juicy. If you are asked, what your business is, manifest your pride and let them know that your service can help them with a problem they may have. For example: "Do you know how people give up everything they own to live their dream, but they find they're constantly struggling, and that dream is beginning to lose its appeal? WELL, I'M THE ONE WHO BRINGS REALITY BACK TO THE DREAM. I have done X for so & so, Y for so & say and as a result of my help, so & see has increased his/her bottom line ___%!" (Something to that effect.) Let people know you believe in what you're doing. (That is -- if you do! If you do not, then just stick with us; you'll get it. :)
The name of the excercise is NETWORK TO GET WORK! :) The people you will meet at Nest tonight are potential clients or friends or mentors and lessons learned.
SEE YOU TONITE! EVERYONE -- ENJOY YOURSELVES!!! (Don't worry -- I'll keep my Converse in my bag for a bit.) Hee hee! :)
I TOLD YOU WE WERE GONNA HAVE FUN, AND WE'RE JUST GETTING WARMED UP!!! To all the members of the Money Makers Club who attended the Business Plan Writing Workshop, this is the event our co-host, Tony Herbert shared with us. As part of the Money Makers Club mentorship, I advise all of our members to join The Professionals Network Organization. (It's free for the time being.) There are sooo many benefits to joining and these hi-end, quality networking parties alone is a perfect reason to join. Friendships are created, DEALS ARE MADE while vibing and relaxing with professionals from a plethora of industries. I've been VP of Communications for The Professionals Network Org for over a year now.
