In my YouTube video this week I discuss the pain points most of you ladies have which include career blocks, difficulty with men, and struggles to develop and maintain relationships. You’re great! You are a good person, with a good heart, and good intentions. Yet; that doesn’t always reflect in the relationships you’ve built over the years that may or may not have been fruitful or didn’t last long enough for you to find out!
The thing is, we can’t shy away from having relationships with others. All these quotes like “I hate people”, “I’m antisocial”, all point to one thing—emotional immaturity or a lack of confidence. Lack of confidence and the inability to connect with others will not result in you receiving the keys to your wildest dreams. The bottom line is, people need people.
My definition of networking is establishing, maintaining, and nurturing relationships with individuals, groups, and organizations to give and receive information. I share a story of how networking helped me get into places I never thought I’d have the opportunity to be in from jobs, to paid internships, to the inside scoop on locations and provisions I could have for my events. But what got me there? Was it just the fact that I knew these people? Absolutely not. It was my continuous ability to SHOW UP for myself and PROVIDE SUPPORT for others! It was literally like people wanted to help me. I even had strangers donating money to me online to support my endeavors.
