About This Course

Published 11/2014 English

Course Description

In my life, I've achieved a variety of personal goals thanks to direct support from a professional network of great people who have helped me along the way. From getting my private pilot certificate to starting my own business, I couldn't have done it without the connections I've built. I believe wholeheartedly in Proverbs 15:22 that says "Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed." When successful people say that they didn't do it "on their own", they're only half-right. Sure, many people helped them on their way, but those people didn't magically appear. YOU have to find the right people and then YOU need to connect with those people.

This course takes you through process for targeted networking success:

  • Step One: Identify the right people to connect with.
  • Step Two: Contact those people.
  • Step Three: Keep and grow your network.

I pledge to teach you what I know. I’m not going to pretend to know something when I really don’t. Everything I tell you in this course is from what I’ve learned through experience. I used targeted networking when I was in high school and I still use it today as I am currently in college. As millennials, we are at the beginning of our professional careers and it is important to start networking smart as we build the connections that will shape our future. Whether you’re just getting started in high school, or just graduating college, targeted networking is an extra weapon in your arsenal as you strive to reach your goals.

As you take this course, please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions! I truly believe the methods and ideas you get from this course will benefit you in the long-run. Some of it may seem like common sense, but you’re sure to learn something new or find a spark of inspiration! Have fun, be creative, good luck, and God bless!

Instructor Biography

John T Hill, Entrepreneur

I'm 20 years old and currently studying economics at George Mason University. I've been working in the aviation industry since I was 16 and received my private pilot certificate from the FAA at age 17. In early 2014, I co-founded Mason 3D LLC, a 3D printing service. We're currently members of the Mason Enterprise Center, which is basically a business "incubator" with a whole lot of networking opportunities. I'm currently involved with another start-up involving a mobile app for GA airports and I'm also planning to produce a documentary in the near future. I was recently listed as one of the top 5 college entrepreneurs of 2014 by Entrepreneur Magazine. I'm also a writer and radio show host.

I don't want you to read all of this and think "wow, this guy is impressive", because honestly I couldn't have done any of it on my own. Without the blessing of God and the help and support of other people, I wouldn't be where I am today. I think most "successful" people will tell you the same, they couldn't have done it on their own. It takes a lot of support, advice, etc. And that support comes through connections which come from "networking". That's the word that immediately brings an image to your mind of awkward situations and handing out business cards. I don't think networking should be hard...actually, I know it isn't. Anyone and everyone can do it. And that's what I plan to teach as my first class on udemy, with many to follow.
