Although we spend most of our time in front of a computer, through my own research and working with my clients, I have noticed that the true connections that can help you succeed in your personal life, in your career, and in your business are the face to face interactions in your day to day.
Many people think networking is going to a 500 people event, talking to some strangers, and maybe getting their business card.
True networking is about making connections. Honest, deep connections with those around you.
I could spend all day writing a blog post about the top ten networking tips or some other "mental snack" article that you read and completely forget about in 5 minutes.
Instead, I'm going to challenge you and myself.
I'm challenging myself by teaching you in 3 days all I know about networking, connecting, and turning those new connections into opportunities for you in a way that is honest and even fun.
I'm challenging you by asking you to use these new skills at a networking event this week!
The goal is for you to have actionable skills that you will use.
The Charisma Challenge Course is 100% FREE.
For the next 3 days, I'm going to show you the steps you need to know to start building your network one day at a time. You will learn how to choose the right networking event for you that fits your personality and your career goals. You will know how to approach strangers and you will know how to start and end a conversation. You will know how to follow up.
And most importantly, you will know how to do this in 3 days.
Every day I will publish a new lesson that will build up your networking skills. Each new lesson will also include a Daily Charisma Challenge that will push you out of your comfort zone and help you grow your Charisma and Confidence Muscles. Like that extra set of pushups, it may hurt right now, but it'll help you get better and stronger.
Your challenge is this:
You will use what you learned and apply it at a networking event this week.
Do you dare take the Charisma Challenge?
