What’s on your mind?

I love what I do, my job. I enjoy helping friends move ahead in business through the fraternity. People like to do business with real people. It’s also one of the reasons why I’m enjoying the publishing industry a whole lot more these days. People are making themselves a much more accessible.

Real people.

It’s easier to connect now, isn’t it?  Social media brings us a much broader world, that’s easier to connect. We can ask for help, we can connect, reach-out, find a solution, respond, blag, influence and much more in the big wide world, through small deeds, just by reaching out for support.

Not so for everyone though. Some find reaching out is just not an option, they stick to the familiar working routine, and if that’s predominantly their own company they’re keeping, finding satisfaction in business, let alone the pay-day, is tough.

By reaching out we learn more. We earn more.

You know this one as well … if you don’t ask … you don’t get.

It wasn’t always like that for me. I was brought up to ‘keep my nose out,’ or ‘don’t offer until advice is asked for.’ I didn’t heed that advice long, because through sharing I’ve become more comfortable  offering experience and support to my trusted community.

I enjoy the business I’m in because I’ve embraced change. By simply being available … and listening … I’ve become credible and so I’ve become more passionate about my offer.

For me, to help others find their footing, their true niche, to ultimately help friends identify their passion is even better when that person I’m supporting actually ‘gets it’ and they, in turn, begin to leverage their skills and work with others.

It’s easy these days to ask for help, it’s acceptable, it’s at our fingertips and still, the opportunity to offer support eludes some.

The opportunity eludes them?

When we’re depriving our greater contacts the opportunity to show their suppor, that’s not good business sense …

One of the many benefits of networking is the opportunity to help others. Today, more than ever it’s smart sense to embrace the change around us, show the emotion, declare our needs to those we spend time with. Because by doing so, we make ourselves available for that same opportunity.

People buy from passionate people.

I love the coast and in particular, the area in which I live, the North East of England. 30+ years experience in publishing and personal development is what I bring to individuals looking for advice, direction or simply an independent listening post. My passion is the person, hence my interest in structured networking and the magic that happens when like-minded people engage. engage, develop, grow ... with Go!
