St. Patrick’s Day is the day we celebrate our Irish Heritage (I’m 25% Irish). Having visited Ireland a number of times representing Leads Club and traveling with my father, I learned the importance of a welcoming spirit.
The Irish people are Warm, Welcoming and Inclusive.
How does a welcoming spirit pertain to Networking? Just think about the last time you were at a networking event…. Were those that expressed these traits people that you gravitated towards? For me, yes.
How can you be Warm, Welcoming and Inclusive in your Networking activities?
Warm… In other words sincere. A sincere, warm greeting paves the way to build a relationship with those you meet. Welcoming…Learn about their world. Who are they, what do they need and want. How can you help them? Make it all about them.
Inclusive...Include them in your sphere of influence. Think about who you can refer them to that can help them.

How can you create the best opportunity to build a successful business? Have a Plan! Did you know that a business with a plan is 70% more likely to succeed? Does "plan" conjurs up visions of a thick document full of charts and graphs? This may seem overwhelming. Many plans do contain these items, but a plan can also be simple and brief yet still be powerful. Listen to our podcast on the Power of Planning.
