Building an online platform is hard work, like any business. But the good news is that there is a wealth of great information from people who’ve already done it. And one of the best places to learn is at conferences, such as Jeff Goins’ Tribe Conference, which I attended recently. Here are some of my key takeaways.
Have you ever had a job you hated? I mean REALLY hated? Are you in you in it now? Well in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about how to leave a job you hate using the power of a great network.
In today’s episode, our guest and I talk about:
- Power of building a network
- How to use projects to change your life and world
- How to get out of a job you hate
Take a moment to answer this question: Who have you always wanted to connect with? It’s probably someone you admire like your favorite author, entrepreneur, or business leader. The problem is that those people are very difficult to connect with…until you know how.
We all have people we look up to and wish we could connect with. We read all their books, watch all their speeches, follow them on social media. and listen to every interview they give. We know their stories and we feel a connection to them.
But the question remains…how do we connect with them?
Let’s get this right out of the way: The amazing, crucial, and top secret key to building relationships with the VIPs and influencers in the world is this…you introduce yourself. Blog post over. Wisdom dropped. Lives changed. Commence with the rest of your day.
But seriously, that is the key. It’s the hurdle most people aren’t willing to jump over. They aren’t willing to stick their neck out, risk rejection or possible embarrassment (which is rarely the result) and try to connect with someone who could change their lives.
My own struggle
I struggled with those fears for years. Even today, when I am about to hit send on an email or pick up the phone to call someone I admire, I am like a 13-year old boy calling a girl to ask her on his first date.
How is having a powerful network like being able to skip the lines at the movies? Well, today’s guest knows better than most, because that’s exactly what he gets to do.
In this episode, we have our first return guest, Mark Sieverkropp, and he’s here to tell you how you can skip the lines of life, just like at the movies.
Plus, we’ll talk the upcoming Networking with Purpose LIVE event. There’s still time to register, so click here to sign-up. Mark and I preview some of the topics of the event and discuss a few of the most asked questions we’ve received about the event.
Have you ever worked in an environment so toxic, you just knew you had to get out? But you couldn’t get out…because you needed the job. I’ve been there. Most people have. But there is something you can do about it.
Have you ever said, “I can’t afford to lose this job.” You stayed in a job you hate and it made you absolutely miserable. Maybe that describes you right now. Well, if that is you, I’m here to help.
The fact is that when you are stuck in a job you hate, it is almost impossible to fulfill your purpose and do what you’ve been called to do.
