Things That Require Zero Talent!

Things to keep in mind:

GET COMFORTABLE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE-If you want to grow, you need to take on challenges outside of your comfort zone. If you find yourself very uncomfortable networking/talking to strangers...then you need to step up your game...push yourself! 

(Growing up you heard parents tell their kids: "Don't talk to strangers")  This may still be true today, but when it comes to networking...NO ONE GETS ANYWHERE ALONE! SO THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A MINUTE.

  • If you connect with a connection on LinkedIn...take the high road and respond to his/her In-Mails. If you can't take (60) seconds to acknowledge an e-mail...then GET OFF LINKEDIN!
  • Being on time.
  • NETWORK, NETWORK, NETWORK...Always look to build real relationships with smart, innovative, vibrant, bright people.
  • Minimize negative comments/Don't backstab anyone!
  • Making an effort/always be prepared to talk about the value you bring to the table.
  • Over prepare...know your wheel house well.
  • Know your worth, but understand that you are not entitled to anything.
  • Power of persuasion "Win Your Case"
  • Be a team player.
  • Lead change..agent of change/be accountable.
  • Be organized and responsible.
  • Having a positive attitude.
  • Be high energy and over perform.
  • Being passionate.
  • Stand up for yourself when you want a raise or promotion.
  • Be a leader and a driver.
  • Say so by eagerly accepting any assignments.
  • Avoid the drama...try to stay clear of any nonsense & stupidity.
  • Be proactive...and keep your excuses to yourself.
  • Take constructive feedback and learn from it.
  • Speak not be professional but use your voice.
  • Using good body language.
  • Doing a little extra.
  • Being prepared.
  • Having a strong work ethic.
  • Be on time getting back to peoples request/If you owe them FAST and QUICK...and don't blow them off.
  • Don't assume you are the smartest person in the room... 
  • Don't play and use people...this is a good way to get burned!
  • Don't connect with people...only to reach out to them...when you need them! This is at best...VERY weak. Stay in touch with your network always.
  • It is a small world...treat your network with great respect!

About Me


The power of connecting and networking is huge. Having a well-established network has become an important part of our lives. It's often said that networking is where the conversation begins, not where it ends! 

How can I help you? 

Networking leads to lifelong friendships- Keeping to yourself and not mustering up the courage to utter that "hello" can lead to dire consequences such as missing out on a business opportunity or a friendship...or a job opportunity of a lifetime. Go ahead and give that "hello" a shot and see for yourself!

Pay it forward- Look for opportunities to provide value to those in your network. The value you provide isn't limited to the workplace; this could be anything from a restaurant recommendation, to an introduction to someone in your network. Sometimes the best way to network is the small talk...NOT serious talk...amazing how far informal chatting can take you.

And remember this-(No one makes it anywhere alone!)

Networking Tips:

Building your connections can provide you with invaluable opportunities to exchange information, get advice from peers, and in many cases achieve your career goals.

  • Don't be afraid to small talk. Small talk helps to break the ice.
  • Don't hide behind technology and avoid face-to-face networking.
  • Attend casual meet-ups with people in your field- 1:1 time is key and can go a very long way...however, please do this in a public setting...a safe setting! Safety first!!
  • Become a connector- You don't always have to gain something in a networking relationship. If you can introduce people who can benefit from one another, it's just as effective. You can build a stronger rapport with multiple people and it makes you very good.
  • Send out LinkedIn connections...get connected.
  • Attend industry events...and trade shows/events
  • Fight your fear- If you are an introvert, you may need to push yourself to be more outgoing. 
  • Ditch the sales pitch- Networking is building connection at a time. Just be you..
