I used to be afraid of networking events...

My first experience with networking was when I was a wedding planner at a hotel. And you guys - I was so scared of networking with business professionals! 😱 I know, shocker, right?

I think I felt like I didn’t belong in the room because I was just an event planner and not a super smart business person. Wow. There’s a lot to unpack in that confession! 😆 Anyway. Here’s the thing…

People often think I’m an extrovert because I’m outgoing and comfortable speaking in public. However, the truth is that I’m an introvert who rarely feels comfortable going up to new people and starting a conversation. I’d much rather have deep conversations or fandom conversations with people I know well. There’s no in between.

I’ve noticed through the years that a lot of leaders also struggle with networking. So that’s why, in the YES module of our signature leadership program called, RAYMA Foundations™, we added a principle called, “Expanding Your Connections.” We give you 15 action steps you can take to start networking better without letting fear stop you.

If this little morsel resonated with you at all, and you’re tired of letting the fear of networking get in your way, then you’ve got to get the YES course! Actually, get the entire RAYMA Foundations™ program as a digital bundle at 50% off on Black Friday!

It's time to step into the shoes of a leader who says YES to what's possible, and overcome your fear of networking.
