Long Game

Stop treating networking like a transaction…a lot of people go into networking event like hunters. They’re trying to close a deal. They’re trying to pitch to make the big pitch. What about just saying,” Hi. How are you?” Don’t treat people like an ATM. Get to know their interest -what they love, what they hate Ask yourself, How do I nurture this relationship? How do I turn this stranger into a genuine friend? Don’t try to close the deal right away. Plant the seeds today for a relationship that you’ll still have years from now.
