Are You Keeping Your Company A Secret? Shh...

By Jodie Andre
It doesn't matter if you're the best artist or writer in the world, if no one knows about you or what you do. You may never be able to make a living at what you do best. We all want to sell more and work less but if people don't know who you are that will never happen.
That's where networking comes in to your life. What is networking? Definition: Networking a

supportive system of sharing information and services  among individuals and groups having a common interest. All it really means is people are getting to know who you are and what you do. Don't be afraid of the word "networking."

People like to do business with people they know and recommend people they trust. Getting to know people and being known by them is a deep subconscious need that's filled by networking. It opens doors of opportunities and fulfills a need for social interaction. It gives you a feeling of being in control of your career.

When you network, you will learn about new products/services, new ideas and ways to do business. You will learn about your competitors and how to excel from talking with other business owners and professionals.

It takes time - Rome wasn't built in a day - neither is your company. As time passes and your contacts grow, so does your business. Always be prepared to network with everyone you meet. You never know how many people will become your best customer, your best cheerleader or your best friend. It's imperative that people know who you are. If you don't have time to network, hire someone to do it for you! Don't keep your business a secret any longer. Give people a chance to purchase your product or service.
The most important thing to remember about networking is to make it FUN!
