    You have decided to go to a networking event.  You are a little nervous about going by yourself.  And you don't know what to say.  

    Most people start with 'so what do you do?'  There's nothing wrong with that question.  But it doesn't really CRANK UP the conversation.  

    Here are 10 killer opening questions from Vanessa Van Edwards (the Science of People):

    1. Tell me about you.

    2. What’s your story?

    3. What personal passion project are you working on right now?

    4. Working on anything exciting lately?

    5. How do you know the host?

    6. Have you been to an event like this before?

    7. What was the highlight of your day today?

    8. What was the highlight of your week?

    9. What was the high-point and low-point of your day so far?

    10. Is this your busy season? Is this a busy time for you?

    Try one of these questions as a conversation starter at your next networking event!

    Good luck and happy networking!

    Are you ready to reach all of the goals you have for yourself and your business?  

    Here are 7 tips to help with your goal setting (and achieving) process!

    1. Set a goal that will MOVE YOU TO ACTION.  You do this by setting a goal that excites you.  Always know the WHY behind your goals (because that is what will keep you working at it even when the excitement is gone).

    2. Put your goals in writing.  Putting your goals in writing has proven to be a key step in attaining your goals.  Write down the goal.  Write down the WHY.  And write down the date.  And GET TO WORK!

    3. Create action plans for your goals.  Is there something you need to do daily or weekly to make your goal a reality?  You need to break your goal into actionable items you do on a regular basis.

    4. Make your goals SMART (specific, measurable, attainable, realistic and timely). 

    5. Use visualization every day.  See yourself as already achieved the goal.  And visualize what you need to do every day to make it a reality.

    6. Stay positive.  When you are going after a goal, you will run into setbacks.  Know this is the case and know that at times you will feel frustrated or overwhelmed.  Just keep positive and keep pushing!

    7. Get an accountability partner.  Once you have your action plans, choose someone (that believes in you and wants you to achieve your goals as much as you do) that will hold you accountable to doing the activity required.
