Upping the importance of your network
So, how do you start traveling in the right circles? The good news is that it’s way easier than you may think! During my career, I changed industries five times and made 11 major job changes from sales to audit and everything in-between. How’d I do it? It wasn’t magic, it was my network.
For those of you already in the Career Winners Circle, you understand when a fundamental shift in thinking happens and you become the CEO of your career. You go from treating your network as an afterthought to treating it like a blood source. It is the fuel that keeps your career alive. When you have this shift in thinking, you start to intentionally build your network versus picking people up along the way.
Let’s face it, most of our networks are made up of people we pick up along the way. We hang onto the good ones, get rid of the schmucks, and move on with our busy lives. We then wonder why our network isn’t there to serve us when we need it most. I want you to think about building a community with purpose and intention, one that is designed to help you make the impact that you want and have the influence that you need to reach your career goals.
