Marketing myself

The only way people will sponsor NHWIB is if they get to know me personally (or close to it). So I spend time on FB, my website (the old one), and emails to let people get to know me. I also network like crazy. Someone suggested I interview myself on my show. Not unless I want to bore people to death. Once people get to know me, if they like me, they are more likely to be interested in sponsoring NHWIB. Because they are buying me.

My husband calls it yogurt

I spent an hour with Karen Kenney from Quest Yoga of Chichester this afternoon. She has agreed to be on the show, so we thought it would be a good idea for me to experience yoga first hand. She suggested we do some Thai Yoga Massage then some group yoga classes.
So today was the Thai. I was excited to have someone work on my muscles since I have been going to physical therapy for muscle tension in my neck and back. Karen did an excellent job finding out about me first, then explaining what she was going to do. Thai Yoga Massage is different, because the instructor moves the student into stretches and positions for relaxation. I will admit it is difficult to not "help" move your arms and legs around. Once we were done, I was able to lie there for a minute and relax before I went home. Karen really took her time to explain the importance of maintaining the benefits of yoga. I am looking forward to attending group classes and having Karen on the show.

Epsom rocks!

Today we had 26 (26!) people at our Epsom Networking group. I can't get over how excellent that is. We enjoyed a great presentation, introduced 6 new people, and connected with some friends. I love meeting new people and learning about what they do outside of work, because that is who they really are.

Later today I did another interview for NHWIB that will be on 2/13. Allison from Tutor Doctor. She has become a good friend in a short time.

Can't wait to see everyone again tomorrow in Chichester.

Networking works!

Who says networking doesn't work? I get more calls from interested parties from networking events than I do in 100 cold calls. Not to mention the fabulous people you meet, most of whom become your friends.
Got three calls this week from almost complete strangers who I met either at an event I was at or I was recommended by someone I met at a networking event. You can't put a value on that. Correction. That is priceless!
