How to connect and network with people Anywhere
Are you connecting with people? Is it easy for you? Are you talking to the right people?
If you want to create a lifestyle doing what you really love, do you practice networking?
As I was speaking for the Women Economic Conference in Portugal (WEF, Tomar), I realized some important facts that are the result of my connecting skills.
You can watch this video below, taken at a beautiful location, where I share my experience and insights about how connecting can help you.
Make sure to continue reading for the details on what, why and how.
‘’It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.’’
Some believe strongly in this saying, or even have evidence of this thesis. Others may argue that ‘’It’s being in the right place at the right time and saying the right things to the right people.’’ or ‘’The future belongs to the competent’.
Connecting or Networking, What, Why, How?
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, networking is defined as the exchange of information or services among individuals to cultivate productive relationships for employment or business.
The definition of connecting is to establish a relationship in which a person or thing is linked or associated with something else. A connection is a relationship that occurs as a result of successful networking.
When you google ‘’Why networking’’, you’ll find endless information related to career and career growth. If you want to climb the career ladder, here are some of the key networking benefits:
Strength business connections
Advance your career
Get access to job opportunities
Interconnected business contacts resulting in more knowledge
Get career advice and support
Get an answer to every question
Find a job you love
What if your goal is to QUIT that career and create the life YOU WANT???
CONNECT, CONNECT, CONNECT!!!
Take networking to the next level.
In my video you have seen how connections have impacted my life, my actions, and my surrounding tribe in the most beautiful ways.
Humans are social animals: We crave feeling supported, valued and connected.
The feeling of belonging anywhere in the world is a wonderful outcome that starts with creating connections everywhere I travel to, and evolves in friendships. For me, these are the ingredients to live a balanced life, which was the topic of my speech at WEF (my speech start at 1:07:24). You’ll hear me speak about the benefits of FRIENDSHIPS and the term ‘’Friendfluence’’.
Research has also shown the benefits of social connection including:
- Increased happiness. A key difference between very happy people and less-happy people is good relationships
- Better health
- Decreased loneliness
- A longer life
- Emotional support
- A source of advise
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem,
- MY ALL TIME FAVORITE: lifelong FRIENDSHIPS
Start a conversation, ask a question, ask for a direction, talk about a similar interest. Meeting new people can happen in the supermarket, on the train, sitting on a bench, a tour bus, in a dance class or at the gym. You can choose to connect with locals, expats, travelers, and through social media, or meetups.
