Learn and get ready to apply three ways to move prospects from “I don’t know” to “Yes, let’s get started!” How to create urgency without creating pressure. Learn how to know when to move on and regain your time and energy for those prospects that need your help!

Create Stronger Networking Connections

Be Prepared to create stronger networking connections.  Be Prepared is not just the Boy Scout motto.  It’s the way to get the most out of your networking efforts.

Whether you aim to do personal or professional networking, Meetup.com is a great site for enlarging your network.   Here we’ll share a couple of tips to use at Meetup.com and other networking sites to help you make stronger networking connections.

Before you go to your networking event or Meetup, take a look at who else will be there.  At meetup, just click on their names and you’ll be taken to the profiles of attendees.  Make a list of two or three (or more) who you’d like to meet.  Have a question or two in mind for when you meet them.  Include “I noticed on your Member profile that your ideal prospect is “X” – can you tell me more about that?  Or, your profile says you’re also a Member of “X” groups; how do you like them?

The first time I shared this tip with a member of Wisconsin Business Owners, just before a Meetup, she was looking at the list of attendees online and exclaimed, “Welcome, Theresa” as the new member who’d registered walked through the door.  Theresa was pleasantly surprised to be so warmly greeted by name, and a light bulb clicked on for the member who greeted Theresa.  Both got off to a strong start for the day.

Of course, if you want to be recognized, do your profile with a picture of you.  This allows everyone to learn more about you and your business before and between meetups.  We have a 5-minute video for doing your Wisconsin Business Owners Meetup Member Profile at https://www.meetup.com/wisconsin-business-owners/messages/boards/thread/49868680

A few of our Members, great advocates of helping others create stronger networking connections

5 ways to create stronger networking connections

From TED at Work:

In a tech-obsessed culture, it can be difficult to build genuine relationships with people, especially in the workplace. Robert Reffkin shares his tips and tricks for establishing authentic connections on the job.

Robert Reffkin is on a mission to help everyone find their place in the world.

Why you should listen

Robert Reffkin was inspired to enter the world of real estate by his mother, Ruth, a longtime agent who now proudly works at Compass, the real estate company Reffkin cofounded in 2012. After completing a bachelor’s at Columbia University in less than three years, Reffkin worked at McKinsey, Goldman Sachs and as a Fellow in the White House before returning to Columbia for his MBA. He ran 50 marathons in 50 states to raise $1 million dollars for charities — including for New York Needs You, the non-profit he founded to serve young people living below the poverty line who are the first in their families to go to college. Reffkin lives in Tribeca with his wife Benis and their three children.

WisOwners Lunch & Learn: Introduction to Blockchain – February 22, Brookfield, WI

INTRODUCTION TO BLOCKCHAIN
By Dave Rebro

-Have you heard of the “Blockchain”, but wondered what Blockchain is?
-Are you wondering what the difference between the Blockchain technology and the Internet?
-Curious how digital currencies (like Bitcoin) and the Blockchain are related?

You’ll be ahead of the curve if you learn now how the Blockchain will impact you and your business and your life.

Are you ready for Your Beginners Guide to Blockchain?

During our time together, you’ll learn why Blockchain isn’t a fad and how it’ll have wide-reaching implications in every aspect of your life and business.

We are amidst the early stages of a historic transformation which in the near future will impact every aspect of you conducting business!

If we don’t become familiar with Blockchain, at least on a basic level: how it works and its terminology, it will be much more difficult for us to assimilate it into our businesses and lives.

Come join me and other like-minded business owners and professionals who are seeking to understand the purpose of the Blockchain in a fun, interactive, and simple fashion! You’ll walk away with a foundational awareness of the Blockchain technology to advance your life and business.
