    If you want to succeed in your business, whether that’s a part-time Mary Kay gig or a multi-company empire, then meeting people who’ve already succeeded before you is going to be a huge help. In fact, this could be the sole difference between success and failure. But how do you network locally and at seminars? Learn from my mistakes… and from many years of watching these groups work. Of course, these tips hold true for online networking as well.

    I think it was renowned author and speaker Bob Burg, who said: “All things being equal, people will do business with and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.” All things not being equal, people still prefer to do business with people they like.

    If you want someone to share with you their success stories for building their business, then step number one is to build a friendship with them. Get to know them personally, and allow them to get to know you. Show a little vulnerability, as well as curiosity and interest toward them.

    Once you have a relationship, then talk business.
