Now that you know how to get rid of the fear of networking events, here is the surefire evidence it’s working.
When we find ourselves…
- Having fun.
- Smiling or laughing.
- Asking questions and actually listening to the answers.
- Arriving early and leaving last.
- Approaching strangers.
- Giving compliments.
- Feeling a connection with a person before swapping business cards.
- Either during the event or looking back at it, having moments of appreciation.
Remember, with networking events or any event in life, the real enemy is the fear. To release it, all we have to do is be aware of when we’re afraid, know the choice to stay in it is up to us and then to decide to let it go. Then pay attention to the results.
