Welcome to episode 16 of Ask Mark, where I answer your questions about personal development to help you become the best version of yourself.
From interviewing people from all walks of life on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from my guests by answering any questions you have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner and help you stand on the shoulders of giants.
I love hearing from my listeners. If you would like to get involved and have your question featured on the show, please leave your question in the comments box or drop me a message on social media in the links below.
Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.
Today’s question surrounds the topic of what not to do in networking. You definitely don’t want to be the person going all around the room handing out business cards like it’s confetti.
If you are talking to someone at an event, listen to what they are saying. Build a meaningful conversation with them and don’t be scanning the room, trying to see who else you can talk to.
Another thing you never want to do is gossip about other people or the event. If you do this, you will come across as untrustworthy and people might think you will gossip about them.
Don’t try to feel that you need to talk to everyone, but rather try to build two or three meaningful conversations. Just be yourself but with a bit more energy, smile and have some questions prepared.
