Why It Pays To NOT Be A Go Getter – Networking Tips

Networking Tips

You’re ready for whatever. Focused. Driven. About to take the next big step in your life.

What next?


In this live event audio footage I share a story with a group of Upward Bound high school students about what it means to change your mind-set from being self-serving to serving others. You’ll like the terminology used that I got from my friend, Dan. You’ll also learn about one of the ways that I expand my network to meet other like-minded people, which is how I met Dan – the star of this story.

You can check it out in this youtube audio clip.  To jump to the story about Dan and not being a Go-Getter, go to 2:27

    •  Learn how to get others to want to do things for you without convincing them to.
