Growing your business through connection is a skill that can be learned.  Not everyone needs to be a extrovert to be successful.  It is more important how you connect rather than how many you connect to.

Overlooked Necessities for Growing Your Business

Each great connection opens you and your business to the other person's network, resources, and knowledge.  Learn to connect the right way and watch your business opportunities grow as a result.  

Limitless Potential within Your Network

Your time is limited as a new entrepreneur, therefore you have to be wise with your time.  What is often neglected is time to connect.  We get too busy trying to find customers we often neglect the one glaring resource at our fingertips- our network. 

Within your network is countless referrals that can turn into business-to-customer and business-to-business opportunities.  Usually networking is free but has the potential to grow your business exponentially.  But you must connect with people the right way to grow your customer-base, network and business. 

Course Overview

We begin the course with understanding the importance of networking for business growth and then dive into recognizing the difference between a customer and a supporter (client).  You will learn the following points: 

  • Partnering with your client for business growth
  • When to ask for the referral
  • How to ask for the referral

Then, we dive into the basics of networking the right way.  Yes, there is a right way and wrong way to networking.  The right way will grow your business through valued-relationships.  You'll learn the following points: 

  • Winning people while networking
  • Quality over quantity of connections
  • How to develop those relationships

Finally, we close with one of the most important relationships for a new entrepreneur- the mentor.  Not every mentor is equal, but finding the right one for you is essential. You will learn the following:

  • The right mentor for you
  • Starting a mentorship relationship
  • Developing a mentorship relationship

Who is the target audience?
  • New entrepreneurs or people transitioning from work to entrepreneurship.

Business Empowerment Coach

I empower people to start businesses regardless of their situation.  I believe that personal development is the key to becoming the person you want to be.  You can learn from books, programs, seminars, or through networking. Your only limit is your belief in yourself.  

I've been in business for over 7 years.  I have 4 companies (Glad Health & Fitness, Glad Health Transport, The Simeon Group Publishing, and Coach Glad) in four different industries.  I didn't have any experience in either but learned through personal development.  Now, I encourage others to be unstoppable when pursuing their goals.
