What’s the secret to meaningful networking?
- Service and kindness rule!
- Start with a question that’s not “so what do you do?”
- “What’s something fun you’ve done in the past week?”
- “What are you passionate about?”
- Or lead with a sincere compliment “Love those shoes!”
- Respond to the cold call emails–meet them with kindness and graciousness.
- Don’t undervalue conversations that are just about “how are you?”
