Kindness goes a long way.
I think many people think you can just turn on networking and bam! You got connections.
But I think it’s much deeper than that. Every interaction, every possible meeting is a chance for growth.
You have to build that warmth and kindness as part of who you are. I’ve seen so many stories of people from your past popping up to help at the last second.
People might not remember what you said, but they will remember how you made them feel.
I talk a lot about community but what does that word mean really?
To me it means building friendships not just for yourself but for others.
Being a connector.
Act like the host of a party at any event.
Introduce people to each other.
Ask people questions that show you care.
Take notes and send a short email after.
Offer everyone mints. 😂
