You have heard that referral marketing – networking – is the most powerful way for entrepreneurs and small business owners – like you – to build business. But you just can’t bear the thought of all those meetings, all those strangers, all those phone calls.
Join us for a six-week teleseminar with Kent Blumberg and learn the secrets of networking for the shy and the not-so-shy. Learn why you might want to become a Comfortable Networker. Re-frame the goal of networking from Get to Give. Gain five key networking skills, learn how to bring your strengths to the party, practice spotting and using personality styles, and make it all happen in real life. Try out your skills in a safe class environment, and then put them to work out in the world. Turn your fear into Excitement about networking. Learn to Initiate encounters, rather than just respond. Move from “could do” to “am doing.”
This class is designed for folks who know they need to network to build business or make a career transition, but who dread showing up in a room full of strangers.
A teleclass is like a face-to-face workshop, but you don’t need to leave home to attend. All you need is a telephone. This teleclass meets for six consecutive Tuesday evenings for one hour each week. Class starts at 8 pm Eastern time (7 pm Central/6pm Mountain/5 pm Pacific) on the following Tuesdays: February 10, 17, 24 and March 3, 10 and 17.
