I asked the question, “How do you break the ice at a networking event,” and I posted this on various networking sites such as Motor City Connect and then then I posted to Linked IN Groups that I am a member of that are used for networking. I learned a lot and I feel that these videos emphasize what they are trying to come across.
Plus, combine this with what Shauna Nicholson, of Biznet, stated about Social Media. I am utilizing a lot of different methods of social media.
Anyways, I liked his story and I feel that finding a Mentor and Networking are essential and since I have TROUBLE with the “ASK,” and the, “What do you do” question this gave me a better idea of what I should do. Plus, I should note, that I also have trouble asking for CONTACTS and getting business cards. I can talk, and try and help with the problems, that I can solve. I just need some fine tuning.
Here is another video.
What are the skills that you feel benefit you in the business world and how do you network with them? How do you hand out your business cards with out LOOKING like a “deuchebag?”
