Robert Kiyosaki, the author of the international bestseller “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, gave me an important piece of advice when we were working together a few years back.
“Business is a TEAM sport.”
Whether you are a solopreneur or you’re growing a team — surrounding yourself with the right people helps you grow your business faster.
Just this morning, I reached out to two of my connections to find a new supplier, and within minutes I had their trusted advice and recommendations.
That’s a whole lot of time and money, and stress saved.
Here’s the thing:
- Your business connections***.
- Your peers.
- Coaches and mentors.
- Your suppliers.
- They are ALL part of your business team as much as any staff you might have on your payroll.
The people I surround myself with are essential to my growth and development.
I know that naysayers or those who are only interested in transactional relationships are not good for me to be around.
They zap my energy and my confidence.
That’s why developing relationships and being connected with people who ask more of me than I do has been a cornerstone of my business growth.
Making the Right Connections is Like Networking without the “Icky” Factor
Sometimes, the right connection is that perfect referral, a new supplier, or finding an accountability group, a new friend, access to some vital know-how or technology, or even a new mentor.
When you’re connecting with the right people, all these opportunities become available to you.
We call HerBusiness a “Connection Network” because our whole ethos is about having the right people around you who can open up doors for you that are closed for everyone else.
Who are open to collaboration, and we put collaboration and relationships over competition.
As a business owner, you want to establish your connections in a way that feels comfortable and safe. You don’t want to feel like you’re compromising your values or who you are.
At HerBusiness, we’ve created a place for your relationships to flourish faster and easier than ever before.
In turn, you get a big boost in confidence because you no longer feel like you’re out there on your own and vulnerable. As a result, you’re able to talk about your business with clarity.
Every day inside HerBusiness, women connect, refer, and get to know, like, and trust each other. You can also achieve more by stretching your goals while feeling part of a big, supportive team.
