FEATURED LISTENER: Anthony Witt at The Champion Entrepreneur podcast. Thank you for your iTunes review.

Marcus Whitney moved to Nashville without knowing anyone. He went from serving Nashville technology leaders as a waiter to becoming a recognized thought leader himself.

It’s easy to get motivated when you have kids and no idea of how to pay your bills.

Open your mouth and share your story.

Just show up. Don’t be the invisible person in the back of the room.

Find meet ups and groups to network with.

Preparation always helps people feel more confident.

Be more outgoing by preparing your story before attending a networking event. Know what you want to be known for.

Bring your business cards.

Networking is really a form of personal marketing.

It’s an impression game. How many times have people seen you and your name? What is the quality of that impression?

Marcus’ TEDx Nashville Talk.

You’re going to have to lie to yourself to get over the bias that limit you from doing things your heart tells you to do.

It’s pretty hard to listen to your heart when your mind is telling you the ways you will fail. Tell yourself you’re already the thing you want to be.

[Tweet "Tell yourself you’re already the thing you want to be. @marcuswhitney #nbnradio"]

marcus whitney nbn radioRemember something that was really great on your down days.

Failure is just part of the process of developing mastery.

It’s not always about winning. It’s about growth, reflection and awareness of how you’re moving towards mastery.

Down days are just days. Days in months, months in years.

On Moontoast.

Marcus is an avid LinkedIn stalker.

Networking Tips
1. Get good photography.
2. Pay attention to your LinkedIn profile.
3. Get your pitch together.

He ended up $250,000in debt before being inspired by Seth Godin.

Mastermind Talks was a huge success, so he did it again.

Bryan Kurtz ran Board Room dinners once a month for 30 years.

Jason is trying to move away from dinners and move into experiences like cooking classes and axe throwing.

jayson gaignard nbnradioHow to research people to invite to your dinner.

  • Everyone needs to share a commonality.
  • Ask your network
  • Use a list of top businesses from a reputable source (Profit Magazine in Canada)
  • Determine “anchor tenants”. Get the big fish and others will come.

Be sure to grab a copy of Mastermind Dinners.

[Tweet "Everybody has a deep yearning to be connected. @jaysongaignard"]

Record your networking tip or audio comment at speakpipe.nbnradio.com.

Clay's first Kickstarter client was Gold Star Children by Mitty Griffis Mirrer.

Clay has worked on over 100 crowdfunding projects.

Tons of media exposure for your crowdfunding project won't necessarily help you as much as your network will.

The average crowdfunding campaign creator needs 500 - 1,000 backers.

Make a list of the 100 people you need to reach out to first.

Mike Delponte and the Soma Kickstarter campaign.

Hacking Kickstarter from Tim Ferris' blog.

Segment your personal address book into different groups and compose emails for each group.

If you want to know who your most important people are review your text messages.

Build a share page to make it easy as possible to your core 100 people.

Create personal emails, it’s not about blasting people (or blasting their eyeballs).

Clay has shared the stage speaking with people like Seth Godin, Tim Ferris, Pam Slim and James Altucher.

Wake up and figure out how to help other people each morning.

Helping other people has been the most useful and powerful connection tool I have ever used.

Most freelancers need to be better at positioning and selling what they do.

Tell the story of who you are and include testimonials.

Networking is one of the most important things to help your business.

Reinventing Your Personal Brand by Dorie Clark

Dorie shares her thoughts about changing your job or career and repositioning yourself.

She sold her bicycle on Craigslist to a copy editor at Harvard Business Review. This led to her opportunity to write for HBR, but she had to ask.

My interview with Jason Saddler about fear of asking.

 

When reinventing yourself be clear on your own narrative. Take control of it. Highlight the strengths you gained previously and how they will provide value in your new position.

Dorie shares some personal pitch tips.

How to find mentors.

Try to build a mentor board of directors. Find people with areas of specialty that can help you specifically.

Talking about Stand Out.

How to become recognized as a true expert in your field.

Become a connector and organize an event. Check out Robbie Samuels’ Socializing For Justice.

Dorie recommends Contactually as a great CRM tool to manage your relationships (so do I).

Make it easy for people to connect and find each other at events. Use name tags with “I’m looking for…” for attendees to fill in the blank.

My interview with Contactually’s Zvi Band.

Content creation and inbound marketing is important.

Wait for seeds to sprout.

It’s 100,000 times more powerful for people to come to you, than for you to come to them with hat in hand.

Read a bunch of things and become knowledgable enough to write about it. You can also do interviews about the topic and write about those. Do it in a way that adds something new to the dialogue.

Your network will build itself, once you’ve built the content that shows people you are worth it.

The first step is to start with your own blog, “establish clips”.

Start by creating your own blog. Here’s my ten minute tutorial.

Use the ladder strategy to move up to better publications.

The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users

Self-proclaimed social media experts.

Check LinkedIn Recommendations and Twitter Lists of social media consultants before engaging (or ask me).

Guy speaks 50 – 75 times a year.

We discuss the need for an assigned person to run social media at conferences and events.

A big mistake is not posting enough to social media.

If you’re not pissing off a few people on social media, you’re just not using it right.

My CRM tool is “work your ass off.”

Guy uses social media as a marketing tool. He’s not using it to make friends.

 

guy kawasaki interview on NBN Radio with Dave DelaneyGuy would start networking again by using LinkedIn and Slideshare.

People (more or less) have to be who they say they are on LinkedIn. It’s a much more serious network.

Google+ is a fantastic place.

Calvin Lee @mahemstudiosused Twitter to network his way to Guy Kawasaki (the story is in my book)

It’s not how you get in (to a job) it’s what you do once you’re in.

In technology it doesn’t matter where (your position) you get in.

People (in Silicon Valley) do not care about your background.

Enchanting people requires that you are likabletrustworthy and competent. How you communicate that has radically changed because of social media.

We talk about writing and traditional versus self publishing.

Behavioral analysis. Four temperaments: Mad, Glad, Sad, Scared.

Steve talks about our six part decision making pattern.

Myers Briggs encompasses how people think internally about the world around them.

DISC assessments tell you how people will do things.

How online personality assessments stop short after you get your results.

There are two types of people:
obtainers who are more aggressive and outward focused.
maintainers who maintain order and are more laid back and passive.

Me-me conflicts. I don’t get in the car unless I’m driving it.

When it comes to networking and our behaviors, they can work for us always, but they can work against us if we have desires that are not in sync with the behaviors that we possess.

Steve was a housepainter for 18 years. During this time, he would spend hours helping the homeowners with their businesses and personal problems.

He wasn’t doing what he is, he was doing what he could to earn money.

His wife told him he needs to get paid to talk to people.

Steve went through the process to master personality analysis and trained with a mentor. He is the most successful student with clients in over eighteen countries.

He discovered his niche at 38 years old.

Steve provides advice for people who are making a career change.

Statically, people change careers three times on average in America.

Sit and think about what you’re doing and what it is you want to do. Keep your ears open for the door of opportunity to knock.

Never leave on a negative.

Take baby steps.

You only have one go of it. Don’t sit on your deathbed with a bunch of shoulda, coulda, wouldas.

We become what we think we need to be in order to be successful in front of other human beings.

Religion and human interactivity. Do we perform for the gods or for others?

Steve shares thoughts on self-publishing.

Tim was a radio and television broadcaster before venturing into podcasting.

The majority of his guests are successful, self-published authors like Hugh Howey.

He wanted to know about the writing and publishing process of each author.

His listeners are budding authors who want to learn how to promote their books, and fans of the authors he features on his show.

Jason and I begin by talking about the Mashable Mixer in Atlanta.

The Social Fresh Conference was created because there wasn’t a conference focusing on social media and marketing.

Jason worked successful advertising agencies from 2006 to 2008. He became the social media go-to-guy, but was frustrated that his ideas never got off the ground. People didn’t trust social marketing yet.

He started his own agency, sold it, and he began consulting about social media.

Social Fresh was supposed to be a one or two-time event. He made enough money to roll it into other conferences across the country.

In New Business Networking, Jason said the number one thing he has learned about organizing conferences is the value of partnerships.

We discuss affiliate marketing for conferences.

Jason shares how he finds great speakers for his conferences.

Learn to listen to people first. Give value before you ask for it.

Pick one thing people can help you with and talk about that one thing when networking at conferences.

Follow up is key.

Keep notes through a conference. Write down your "ah ha" moments from the conversation you have, about the people you meet and what you learn from the presentations.

Set reminders to check those notes again in the future.

Jason makes a great point about saving your Twitter direct messages to your email, so you can search them later. Do the same with LinkedIn and Google+.

Volunteer with local organizations to jump start your networking.

The death of Facebook marketing is coming.

Facebook and Twitter are the fastest growing systems for people targeting and mobile advertising. Google is worried.

Long form content is back. People are investing in blogs that take much more time.
