Networking for me, is one of the most powerful words, for my business. It conjures up meetings with new people and that always gives me the perception of new business and an abundance of new opportunities.
Networking is where I meet people who are like minded, who share the same goals as I do and who are serious about business.
Remember though that Networking is something that you have to do on a continual basis and not just when you need new or additional business. It’s easy when you are busy, not to Network, but that is when you need to Network the most – that is how you stay ‘busy’.
Refresh/Rebirth/Revitalize/Re-invent – whatever word you use to describe what it is when you change or add to what it is that you do in your business is also a very important word. Looking back on my business I can see that it has morphed into something similar, but also very different to what it originally was and that’s not a bad thing. You see as Entrepreneurs we have to move and change with what the market requires or needs from us or we will wither and die. Being able to change, quickly and often in a completely different direction is an Entrepreneurs greatest strength. It ‘stretches’ your mind, it makes you ‘think’ and it makes you ‘see’ and become aware of all the different opportunities and options that are available to you.
Next time we will have a look at the final two powerful words, until then remember to have fun!
