I’ll never forget this…
One time, after I spoke at a conference, a guy came up to me to introduce himself
He said, “Hi my name is…” and then he shoved a business card in my mouth.
Yes, IN MY MOUTH.
At first I thought maybe I had something in my teeth. Then I thought, “is this guy SERIOUS?”
I took his business card, dropped it on the floor, and walked away.
What’s strange is…
…While I was annoyed with this guy in the heat of the moment, it’s really not ALL his fault.
You see, networking today is borked.
Conferences, networking events, and the places you’re told to go to “Meet people,” are unnatural and fake.
What ELSE was that guy supposed to do? He was told he needed business cards, and that he should hand them out.
He did it wrong. And sure, there’s a right way to meet people at events, but to me, it ALWAYS comes off as unnatural and fake.
(Wouldn’t you agree?)
And that’s why I filmed this new video.
I share how I build my network and lasting relationships with people.
No business cards. No sleaziness. No networking.
