This week’s guest, Christine Clifton is author of “You Don’t Have to Shout to Stand Out” and owner of MindfulBusinessMatters.com. She is a self-described “SsurThriver“: a southern woman living in a northern land; the only girl in a family full of boys; an articulate and social introvert; and a practical spiritualist. Introverts unite! We too, can get out from behind out screens, make human connections, network like a pro.
Christine shares her process for connecting, reaching out to arrange a call and how to plan for the interaction you want to have during the call. As Christine puts it, You never want to be salesy on this first call, you never want to be icky! But if you can reframe the call to being a solution for them and ask great questions to find out what they need, what their issues are.

If you want to learn how to bring our true selves to a meeting and make a real connection, or just because networking gives you the heebie jeebies, give this show a listen!
