E113: Modern Networking For Creative Extrovert's AND Introvert's
2020 was a challenging year for networking especially for those where their creative is tied to events. I want to go over some ways both types of interaction personalities can connect with more people. To run a successful creative business or get the best out of life I believe in meeting new people with fresh perspectives as much as possible. In this episode we cover some techniques and strategies I’ve seen or used personally to meet people online or in person in the fields I work in but are applicable to what you do too. There couldn’t be a better time to network. We speak through principle components to keep in mind when networking in any manner to get best results, new and existing social and content approaches to connecting with others, and get specific on what may work for extroverts and introverts to play to their strengths. No more saying “Introverts can’t network” that’s BS! If you’ve been listening to the show and haven’t approached me yet shoot me a DM @davewakeup or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to network with you. Let me know what you thought and if this helped you or what works best for you!
