Josh: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?

Donna Fisher: Business Networking is business people sharing information, ideas and contacts with one another to help support the success and growth of one another’s businesses.

Josh: Donna, can you share one idea that someone could put into practice that would help them to improve their business networking skills?

Donna Fisher: Connect with people. Don’t just meet people, connect with them. It is easy to meet a lot of people. It is more valuable and fulfilling to connect with people.

Connect with people by giving people your full attention, being present with them in the moment, showing an authentic interest in who they are and what they need to be even more successful. Connect with people by looking them in the eye, calling them by name and providing them with contacts and suggestions that can help them grow their businesses.
