Anyone Can Network Successfully...
Hi, I'm Sarah Westcott.
I’m an introvert. And a nerd. I’m shy. I HATED the idea of networking. Those awkward meet and greets where everyone stands around making small talk and exchanging business cards. Those boring functions where you get trapped with someone with whom you have nothing in common. And don’t get me started about those aggressive networkers just waiting to pounce and try to sell you their latest and greatest product or business opportunity! It all felt like such a bunch of uncomfortable, inefficient, wasted time.
In 2008, when I launched my (second) career as a Wealth Coach, I naïvely believed what many rookie entrepreneurs assume: “If you build it, they will come.” I got an office. I paid for advertising peddled by a nationally known spokesperson. I shelled out monthly for a weak stream of cold leads that went nowhere. And I waited. And waited. And waited.
Finally, in desperation, I braved the networking scene.
I attended the ubiquitous open networking events, trying to introduce myself and explain what I did over and over again. I attended the structured networking events where everyone got an individual opportunity introduce themselves to the room – and it wasn’t pretty! My face was red, my hands were shaking, and I was sure everyone in the room could see the wet spots under my arms from sweat and fear. I tried emailing and cold calling other professionals who I thought should be able to send me clients – and got nowhere.
Those were the early years. But a funny thing happened over time. I got GOOD at networking. I started learning what worked – and didn’t work – for me. I reframed my expectations about what networking could be and should be. And over time, I started sharing these principles with other business professionals like me. When my life turned upside down in 2015, leaving me as a single parent with 4 teenagers, the years invested in networking activities proved themselves solid gold.
Today, I run a thriving wealth coaching practice built entirely on the networking principles we share with you in this course. And, because I got GOOD at networking, I now also support other professionals in their networking efforts, locally responsible for generating millions of dollars in “thank you for closed business” annually.
These principles work, and I’m excited to share them with you. Enjoy the journey!
