Mickey Griffith joins Dr. Misner today to share his tips for making connections when you’re new to an area and don’t have an established network. He just moved to Sacramento after 20 years in Sonoma County and has used all these tools himself.
- Trust in the system. Join a BNI chapter in your new region and follow the program.
- Network. In addition to BNI, join at least one other network, such as a chamber of commerce or rotary club. Make sure they are groups that you’ll be able to contribute to.
- Aim high. Ask for a one-to-one with your regional director and other people in the “upper echelons” of business.
These approaches aren’t just for people who’ve just moved into a new area or a new field: they work for everyone.
Do you have something you’d like to add to Mickey’s list? Leave your suggestions in the comments on this podcast.
