Hi Amazing People!
Here's a friendly reminder to grow your networks! Last week I had a wonderful opportunity to attend the The Financial Diet book release party where I got to meet and talk with Chelsea herself and other great personalities. At first the space felt huge and I wanted to hide in a corner but the better part of me took over and I pushed myself to speak to other people. Among all the people I spoke with two of the girls told me about travel abroad and talked about their jobs. I don't want make this a long story so I'm going to cut it short. By the end of the night, I walked away with 3 LinkedIn connections and two Instagram followers/friends (which is a huge deal if you're trying to be a lifestyle influencer). And last night I received a message from one of girls from Starcom( Marketing company) asking me out for coffee and an offer to tour the office. We are definitely going to stay in touch and she already wants me on her team. None of that would've happened if I let my anxiety and fear keep me from networking. I not only have connections at companies I want to work at but also have new wonderful friends! With that, have a lovely week!
With kindest regards, Sumiya!
