Today’s episode is all about Networking! How to do it and how to make those relationships last!
“Your relationships are you greatest resource”
It’s important to have friends in business and a network of people. This includes hairstylists, brands, distributors, etc.
A lot of networking is done at hair shows and online. It can be hard to go to these shows and get out of your comfort zone, and you need to have an elevator pitch. Elizabeth had never been very excited for these types of events. She found herself comparing how she acted to those around her, and always left with a ‘yucky’ feeling.
It all changed when she started to “stay in her lane.” She evaluated herself and looked at what she was good at, and what she was comfortable talking about. Once she focused on her business, and got out of the competition mindset, and instead let those conversations happen organically, everything fell into place.
Last year, we were in Morocco, and at our mastermind we talk about Human design and personality. Our coach, Kinzie Madsen explained how to figured out your manifestation type.
Elizabeth realized that she wasn’t aggressive in her marketing and instead focused on relationships.
She does her best when other people approach her and from there she can form a relationship.
So Elizabeths #1 suggestion is to find out how you communicate and HONOR the way you do it.
