Let's say that you want something in your life. (It doesn't matter what it is, specifically—whether you want to move to another country, start a business, publish a book, find a new hair stylist, or whatever, that's neither here nor there.)
The problem is, you know absolutely nothing about the thing you want.
You don't know anyone who lives in Cambodia.
You don't know anyone in the publishing industry.
You don't know how Becky got her good hair.
When you want something in your life, but you're stuck, suffering, and alone, what do you do?
You shorten the curve with a simple, two-word strategy: Reach Out.
The Fastest Way to Get What You Want in Life
The fastest way to get what you want in life is through reciprocal relationships. Yes, as in you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.
We build these reciprocal relationships by reaching out to (i.e. "networking with") like-minded people who have the knowledge, connections, or other cachet to help us along the path to our Audacious Lives.
The issue that most people take with the idea of networking is that it's sleazy, it's self-serving, and others just want to use you. They fear that underneath every interaction is an ulterior motive, which cheapens the conversation.
I won't lie to you—some people do approach networking with a selfish, sneaky, slimy, kill-or-be-killed attitude.
But if you're looking for a kinder, gentler, more genuine and authentic way to network, I have a solution for you.
Introducing the Reach Out Initiative, the Sleaze-Free Way to Network Your Way to the Top
The Reach Out Initiative is a free, 5-day group challenge to get off your butt and meet purposeful, assertive, AMAZING people to grow your personal and professional network.
So that you can
- get a new job
- meet joint venture partners
- enter new industries
- sign new clients
- build your social life
Essentially, the ROI helps you have a wider range of opportunities to accelerate your Audacious Life.
How the ROI Works
The ROI lessons are all delivered via email—so if you have an email address and an internet connection, you're already ahead of the game.
Starting on July 25, 2016, you’ll receive the day’s lesson in your inbox. Each day has a theme, such a Coffee with a Colleague or Hey, Big Shot!, and comes with suggestions, scripts, and contact methods for each theme.
How to Get Started
To get started with the ROI, follow these simple steps:
1. Sign up to receive emails
Enter your name and email address in the fields below to receive daily ROI emails. (You’ll also receive regular weekly emails from me, from which you can unsubscribe at any time. You’ll still receive your lessons until you opt out of them.)
2. Confirm that you’re in for a week of network-building
We fully believe in being fully committed—and if you say yes twice, we know you’re serious. When you confirm, you’ll also receive immediate access to our exclusive Reach Out Guide, better known as your Miss Manners for Networking.
3. Reach out to someone who you think will like this challenge
If you have a friend or colleague that you think is up for the challenge, send them this post. I encourage you to use a personal touch, such as a phone call, email, or DM, to start stretching your reaching-out muscles.
4. Get social
Post it on Facebook or tweet it out, the choice is yours. However you choose to share, harness the networks you have to create the network you want.
