Welcome to the This Shit Works Podcast! I am your host Julie Brown. I am Professional Speaker, Business Development Strategist, Networking coach and Author of This Shit works a No nonsense Guide to Networking Your Way To More Friends More Adventures and more success. I teach people how to create authentic business relationships through the power of authentic Networking.
People hate networking, mostly because they are doing it all wrong. And I can’t blame them, it’s no something we learned in school. I spent years laboring over the Pythagorean theorem and quadratic equations which I have used a total of Zero times since I graduated. But networking, a skill that has the power to change each and every persons career was never taught. So no wonder most people don’t know how to network, or have the tools to do it correctly, or think that they were not born with the gift of networking.
Creating Relationships and networking is one of the most fundamental methods to advance your career even a cause that you are passionate about, because, at it’s core networking is human communication 101 and that is what builds authentic relationships.
So how many hours do you need to dedicate to networking each week. Studies suggest about 6. Thats it, 6 hours!! 6 hours out of the 168 hours you have every week it takes to build a good network that can help you land your dream job , launch anew business, or increase the influence and success you have in your existing career. So you have no excuse to not do it.
We need relationships because everything and everyone is dependent on each other and all of the connections, assistance, referrals and other good shit you need will be unlocked when you network.
33% of people are expected to lose their job during Covid-19 Created. Without networking and a network of people around you it can be really difficult to bounce back and find a job. 74% of jobs are filled via networking and word of mouth and if you don’t have a strong network you your access to these positions will be extremely limited.
This is why I started this podcast, to help people realize that the people you meet can one hundred percent change your life. Networking is how you meet those people. Each week we will dig into my life lessons and that of others, so that you can create the future that you want.
All you have to do is spend 5-25 minutes every week and absorb the tools that I teach you and practice using them every week and I promise, once you get the hang of it it will come naturally to you.
This Episode is an introduction to the journey we will be taking together, making networking fun, accessible and career changing. Lets go.
