It’s Time to Connect!

If you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together”.

This African proverb is so appropriate for the trying times in which we’re living. It’s true-you have a choice.

You can choose to work as an individual, build and birth alone. Or you can choose a team and leverage those relationships for multiplied power.

But as we are working and building relationships with others, and networking for success, what are the rules?

What makes for a successful friendship, networking or partnership venture versus one that is doomed to fail?

I’ve asked these questions of myself quite a bit in the last year as I have both led my own groups and stepped into new groups, while also partaking in various networking meetings.

While I enjoy going to all of the events and groups, I’ve learned that they aren’t all for me. Each has a personality and purpose all their own.

We only have a certain level of capacity and time in the month, so before connecting, it’s so important to understand your values and why you want to connect in the first place.

One of the criteria I found in networking, both socially and for work, is that I enjoy being with like-minded people that love sharing with one another.

This sharing values the time each puts in as well as the effort and experiences of the other person. There is mutual respect, responsibility and care for what the other person needs in relationship.

I also learned I love personal development, to study the Bible, books and talk about deep things. So, I enjoy groups that do those things.

I also like to have fun. Some groups in your life should simply be for laughing more, easing stress and building in more recreation.

Now, it’s your turn. Take a moment and reflect:

  • Are you a woman in business who hasn’t found her tribe yet?

  • Have you become discouraged when you go to networking groups and events and notice people are only out for themselves?

  • Maybe you are a part of a lot of really great groups, but you’d like to go deeper with people who are like-minded and safe for you?

  • What are the values, ideals and habits of a networking group you’d like to join?

Would you like to lunch together? Serve together? Play pickleball? Go on retreats and trips? Exchange leads and clients? There are so many opportunities, and while you can’t do them all, perhaps you can home in on what matters most to you in this particular season of life. Remember, some people are in other seasons of life, and they will have more time freedom or financial freedom than you. Don’t get discouraged if you miss out on something you’d really like to do just because you don’t have the freedom you need right now to do it. Instead, stay focused on your own goals, content and prayerful about right where you are. There is no scarcity and God will always open the right doors for you!

We are talking about building 24-Hour Champions this year and we want you to thrive in all areas of life. Relationships and community are a huge part of that. Determine what you need most, assess what you’re willing to give and don’t forget the season you’re in. The right connections will come your way!

I’d like to invite you to our May 7 Lunch & Learn, “It’s Time to Connect.”

Come do networking a different and generous way, in a manner that will yield you the best results in life.

Lori McCaghren has been an ally for my business for over a decade. She has promoted me, introduced me, referred me and been my client. She has partnered with me in leading a women’s small group at our church and has served as one of the advisors on my advisory board. And she has done it all with the purity and creed that is closest to my own heart, - Zig Ziglar’s philosophy- “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

Lori has not only done this for Brand New U Coaching, but for countless other small business owners and friends, serving others everywhere she goes. She is an inspiration to me!

Come hear Lori’s own personal story of how an introvert whose weakest strength is “Winning Others Over” has succeeded in sales for almost 25 years.

Lori will give us practical and personal wisdom you can apply-on what to do when you get to a networking group or event, being interested in others, forming real connections with care, and creating a community that makes a difference together.

Lori’s VIP system will help you once and for all, create and lead in community that helps each other succeed.

This May, I pray you are able to rest from the frenzy of the school year, relax in relationships, recreate in what gives you joy and allow the authentic you to keep showing up everywhere you go. Click here to learn more and register.
