Josh: How do you define Business Networking and why do you feel it is important?
Meghan Wier: Business Networking is making and growing business relationships – and it is important for every business, and every business person in order to succeed.
Josh: Can you share one idea that someone could put into practice that would help them to improve their business networking skills?
Meghan Wier: The best idea that I can share is to think of business networking as a part of your job. Allocate time to it, set goals, and do it every day. That means sending and returning emails to current and past clients/vendors/friends/coworkers – even if it is just to say hi.
Invest in some nice note cards and send an old-fashioned hand-written note whenever you meet someone new. Keep track of birthdays and send out cards. Set meetings with new acquaintances and meet them out for coffee – just to network.
Make networking your job and it will be a lot harder to put it off — and a lot easier to be a success!
