Networking is a must for entrepreneurs to help build those connections and relationships within our industries, but the thought of networking can also bring up images of cheesy networking breakfasts and collecting business card papercuts.
In this episode, Dave Delaney of Networking for Nice People joins the show to rid us of that mental image and dives into the topic of nice networking, the stigma attached to the word ‘networking' itself and how to do it the right way.
Dave and I also talk about the fear of asking, our takes on how to handle business cards, what he means by a ‘no agenda coffee' and what you should be looking for (and watching out for) when it comes to collaborations.
Dave shared some great insights into how to make meaningful connections that I know you are going to appreciate and apply during your next networking opportunity, so tune in and enjoy!
