Business Owners Learn to Connect

First and foremost, be genuine. Whether you’re learning about someone’s company or explaining your own, be genuine in all of your efforts to connect. People can smell a con artist a mile away, particularly investors and those who have worked with several start-ups. Over time, you begin to experience people who are just after you because of where you work or who you associate with. Make sure you smile, listen attentively when spoken to and ask questions.

Help people. Not everyone will ask, but if there’s something you can do to help someone out, make yourself available. Helping someone is the best way to make a lasting impression. You can’t guarantee they will help you in return, but that shouldn’t be the mentality going in. Look at it as an investment for your business and your place as an entrepreneur connecting with others in the industry.

Pay attention to what’s happening around you. You can connect people who might click or benefit from each other and for this, you could be handsomely rewarded. Paying attention allows you to see just how easy it is to connect with everyone interested in your project.
