Whether you’re new to networking or a seasoned networker, one of the best questions that you can continuously ask yourself is how can I help other people? The famous sales trainer, Zig Ziglar once said, “If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want.” This is a pivotal part of networking success, and the more you help others, the greater the reward. Your circle of influence is everyone you know, or you’re connected to in some way. Focus on your circle of influence to see how you can connect people and help them get referrals. Look even further than your business contacts. Often it can be linkedin, education institutions, associations, past connections, friends, relatives, organisations, groups and social media where the best opportunities are found. Use your full circle of influence to generate referrals for others and focus as your goodwill boomerangs right back to you, like good karma, to help you leap-frog your business.
