Why networking sucks, and a better way to make connections
Does the thought of networking fill you with dread? Visions of those 7am meetings, holding a cup of coffee listening to pushy sales pitches?
We heard from Giselle Galper in 31. Career & Money with Giselle Galper how networking can increase your income. There must be a better way to connect with people who can help you, and who you can help? Even make friends?
Nicola Peake joins us, she is the Queen of Connections to progress your career and business, in a way that feels comfortable.
Nicola shares with us some really easy first steps to take when trying to build new business relationships. She also has some great alternatives to 7am meetings in non-descript hotels. Wild swimming, spa days, and her innovative networking session for the “quiet ones”.
Home alone, bored of doing the same things every day and she was missing seeing people in real life! She knew she had to build a community, Peakes Private Members Club.
She runs the Business Growth Studio, which is for those working towards building their business to 50k.
