This is why your networking isn’t working!
Do you have a network? A bunch of people who you can call on if you need an introduction to a new job? People who would jump at the chance to support you? Help you grow your new business? Because let’s be honest — social media and posters isn’t going to grow it — but 5 people spreading the word like wildfire such as heck will! I’m going to tell you the #1 problem with the way you have been approaching networking.
Which one of these networking experiences sounds familiar?
- You don’t know where to start…so you don’t do anything
- You stick with people in your industry. Attend events or listen to speakers who are familiar to you or just are relevant to your current role
- You keep networking with people you know personally or just people in your company (but you also know that people who are close to you — don’t want to work for you or with you!! That would be weird!)
And all of these are FINE, but they won’t get you the kind of network you really need. You see — you have a BOUNDARY problem. Networks should cross boundaries, industries and should connect you to people more senior, more junior and who come with their own set of people. You need to get to know them personally.
But… that is REALLY HARD. Unless someone does it for you…
So, guess what? I did. THE COLLECTIVE is a group of 100+ women who are going to be your new network. They will cheer for you, mentor you, help you grow and bring you into our network.
We are going to get open about work, find mentors, grow our business, find a new job and be held accountable — while having a REALLY awesome time (sounds too good to be true? It’s not — I promise). It is also helpful to have a hyper connector. Someone whose network spans continents, industries and career stages. So, I would like to introduce you to that person — OH WAIT THAT IS ME! I got so fed up with watching people struggle. I was tired of women not getting the support and expertise that they deserve — so I made this space just for you!!!
COME AND JOIN US! WE CAN’T WAIT TO SUPPORT THE CRAP OUT OF YOU.
