That’s why this week, I wanted to shed some light on some simple tips that can jumpstart your networking skills and make sure you walk out forging the relationships that can be mutually beneficial along the way.

Not only was it an incredible time… and a pretty packed house, but I was able to meet some amazing people, including actors and other industry decision makers. You never know who you might be talking to at a party, so be sure to know the right way to do it!

They are ready to make a greater impact, which looks like building communities of collaborators, creating their own opportunities, and developing residual income streams.

  1. These are GREAT tips – so many people network poorly by being all about themselves or just collecting information. A great network comes from long-lasting relationships. Approach each relationship with how you can help or be interested in the other person. Awesome video Ajarae!
