If you take 10 people and ask them all the same question–I bet you most of them will have a different story to tell. Yes, there will be some base similarities, but each story will ultimately be specific to the individual telling the story. This is why networking (THE RIGHT WAY) is so valuable, not so that you can hear someone’s story and attempt to mimic their path–step by step, but so you can absorb all that you can, TAKE IT ALL IN and decide what’s right for you. Slowly applying the pieces that speak to you and that resonate with you , to create your own journey.
I consult with people all the time wanting to know step by step what they need to do to master this business. My response? There is no exact way. There is no exact science to mastering this business. With there being so many ways for you to achieve your goals in this business, your options are limitless. There is no box. It’s more of a flow chart. As long as you are taking steps, you will move to the next phase in YOUR journey, detours included. Sometimes you may even have to take a step back in order to move forward:)
Stay tuned for a more detailed post on networking the right way!
