Your network is your power! Building a powerful network requires work, creativity, and tenacity. It means putting in the effort to develop lasting relationships and adding value to every connection without asking for anything in return.

Networking is all about the long-game! It does not happen overnight and you need to be able to develop trust and credibility with your network. Exchanging business cards in a single meeting is not going to get you anywhere and can’t even remotely be considered networking. And you need a CONFIDENT ATTITUDE! Think about it…when you are surrounded by high caliber people, you up your game! You are a reflection of the people you surround yourself with.
