It’s no secret.
If you want to learn how to create unlimited opportunities for yourself, you need to master the art of building a quality network.
Whether you’re looking for a new job, travelling to a new city or just someone to hang out with on a Friday night you, you reach out to people that you know first.
That’s why you have to be deliberate about growing your social circle. The bigger your network is, the more fulfilling your life is going to be.
Here’s what shy guys ought to know about building a quality network.
Define What Matters To You
Mutual interests is the foundation of any great relationships.
It’s so much easier to spend time with someone if both of you have lots of things in common.
Before you build your social circle, you have to get clear about what type of people you want to meet.
Take a moment and define your values. What are things that are important to you?
Remember, you become the average of the people you spend the most time with. You have to be intentional about who you keep close to you.
Show Up At The Right Place
Now that you’re clear about the type of people you want to meet, where do you think they hang out?
This could be both offline and online.
Find relevant events in your city and communities on your preferred social networking platforms and be a part of it.
Be an active member and start to get to know other people.
Organize Your Own Events
Remember, the host of the party has the highest social value. You want to become that person.
Take the initiative and bring people together. It doesn’t have to be anything complicated. It could be as simple as just organizing a dinner party.
Be a good host and ensure you make everyone feel welcome. Mention something interesting when you introduce people to each other so they have something to work with.
Provide Massive Value
Nobody has it all figured out. No matter who you are and what you do, people are always struggling with something.
Be a connector.
Pair people up based on what they have and what they need. People like to do business with people they like.
Do you know someone who only reaches out to you when they need something?
It’s annoying isn’t it? Don’t be that person.
Great relationships develop organically and happen over a period of time.
Take a moment out of your day to reach out to someone and just see how they’re doing.
Thoughtfulness really does go a long way.
