Thousands of people go networking and a key reason is to get others who know like and trust them to refer others. But these people don't make it easy for others to help them.
'I am looking for new clients; do you know anyone is not happy with their accountants?'
'I am looking for any businesses within 25 miles from here who need a sign writer.'
I don't know about you but if I hear these questions, my mind goes blank.
When someone in my breakfast networking club say'Does anyone know anyone at Trowel & Co I either do or I don't.
When you want others to introduce you to 3rd parties make it easy for them -name names. The more specific you are the easier it is for them
