Networking Tip: Be a Giver and/or a Connector.  When you focus on "giving" and being helpful to others, the "getting" will come later...and it will come in unexpected ways.  Foremost to remember, is that no one likes a person with a "taker" mentality.  When you are generous, people will notice and repsect you for your kind nature.  And, people generally do business with people that they respect, trust, and like.  Act like a host at every event you attend by connecting people.  This can be a simple act of introducing 2 people to each other or as elaborate as giving a testimonial about 1 person and their services to the entire group.  All of these acts allow you to focus on the "other" and grows your social capital in the room.

Business Tip: As a Christian and a family focused entrepreneur, I believe that faith is a key ingredient in small business success.  In this current economy, the people of God must remember that if you honor God through your business he will direct your path.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

Learn something every day.  If you only lean on your own knowledge in your business, you will not be able to grow.  You must grow yourself to grow your business

Networking Tip: Identify the most influential person in the meeting and have someone introduce you to them. Then ask them this question: What is the most unique USP (Unique Selling Proposition) they have ever heard?

Business Tip: Establish a program and commit to it that will help you find two qualified prospects a day. A qualified prospect is also known as the M.A.N. (They have the Money; Authority to buy; and the Need, and will make a decision within 30 days).

Networking Tip: Instead of trying to connect with "everyone" at a network meeting, focus on connecting with 2-3 each time. Than make sure to develop the relationship through timely follow-up.
