If you’re unsure where to start when it comes to networking, join the club.
In response to this need, we’ve developed a 6-step funnel for networkers to follow for an awesome networking experience; watch out for the next 5 steps later!
Step 1: Identify Yourself
In other words, identify your interests, passions, and needs.
Ask yourself these questions to complete the first step:
Interests: What do you find interest in? What did you enjoy learning in school? How do you spend most of your free time?
Passions: When was the last time you felt motivated? What gets you up in the morning? What do you love to do?
Needs: Where are you located, or, where are you willing to move to? What kind of compensation will you need to live your lifestyle? How do you want your work-life balance split?
Once you’ve done a thorough job of answering these questions, you’ll have the foundation necessary to move through the next 5 steps of the networking funnel.
