Creative, Painless Networking
by Peter Trombetti
Peter Trombetti, founder of The Oficio Group located in Rhode Island, knows the importance of
networking which is essential to creating relationships in business.
Networking can Seem Like a Chore
Its tough meeting new people!
You constantly have to repeat your credentials!
Without structure people tend to congregate in groups.
You Can Make it Less AwkwardSkip the formalities - think about it as making friends.!
Dont just focus on how they can help you - be genuine !
Think of ways you can help them - Connect!
Dont hide behind your phone - Social media is a supplement, not a replacement!
Bring a buddy - talking to strangers is easier with a friend - they can also introduce you to new people
