Y’all know I love me some networking.

And I wanted to understand why more people didn’t love networking the way I do. 

We all know that we need to network, but there’s a resistance that we hit and that we push against when it comes to networking.

So I started talking to my clients and paying attention to the fear that surrounded the idea of networking.

Today I want to go through all the fears and objections I hear about networking. I want to help you rethink some of these objections. 

Let’s do some mindset work today friends!

Come with me as we bust some fears and objections about networking!

[6:20] The #1 reason we fear networking – We’re worried about what people will think [11:07] We’re scared to keep the conversation going
[12:47] We’re fearful of the responsibility if someone says “yes”
[14:12] Anytime you say you’re “not something”, you’re literally putting that on yourself – You say… “I’m not a networker”, then guess what? You won’t be!
[16:10] We have a fear of rejection
[18:26] We give up because we tried it and it didn’t work
[22:19] Strategy is KEY to networking
[26:21] The #1 question you need to ask yourself to help overcome the fear of networking – “What’s the worst thing that could happen?”

Listen here.

Action Steps to apply to YOUR journey:

  1. Listen to the podcast episode.
  2. Figure out which excuse you identify with and write it down.
  3. Write down the tips I give to get over that fear.
  4. Start working on reframing your mindset!

I’m rooting for you friends!
