I was out at 7.30 am this morning walking the fields around junction 4 of the M1..of all places. But the sun shone, the birds sang and Kintish had time to think. What did I think about today?
FORMULA FOR BUSINESS SUCCESS
As I start my 7th year in business as a presenter,trainer and consultant on all things relevant to effective networking I believe the answer is
1 Be passionate about what you do
2 Be visible. Do some business development every day. Hey why not accept more business-related invitations…and turn up?
3 Be reliable. Do what you say you’re going to do and do it when you say you’re going to do it. When you do that on a regular basis you stand out from the crowd.
4 Be persistent. When you spot opportunities always follow up in a professional manner. Don’t be pushy, or get accused of pestering. Know which median is best to use, know the time intervals and know when to give up
5 Become a life-long learner. What have you learnt today?
That’s what I’ve worked out in 6 years as an entrepreneur
