7 Ways out of the rat race.
4. Learn how to joint venture or strategically partnership.
One of the fastest ways to get out of your job, launch a business or simply make some money is to create a joint venture with someone.
Joint Venturing is a way to take either yourself or two other people who could profit from working together but simply did not have the relationship. You profit from making the connection.
For example you know a veterinarian
has a large practice with a list of over 700 clients. You also have a relationship with a new pet groomer in the city who is trying to increase his business.
You put the two together and every time the pet groomer gets a new client due to your structuring this deal you get paid. We call this mail box money. Money comes in your mail box whether you work or not.
5. Set up a written networking plan.
I am amazed at how much time and effort people will spend to find a new job. However, when it comes to designing a plan to exit the rat race they do it almost haphazardly.
You will be much more effective if you have a written plan. The plan does not have to be elaborate. Here are some of the basic things you want to cover:
b. Who do I want to meet?
c. What events should I focus on?
d. How often should I be networking?
6. Attend seminars and boot camp events.
Specialized knowledge is one of the keys to being successful in a home based business. When you attend boot camps and seminars you able to surround yourself with like minded people as well as learn from the experts.
However, if you really want to make these educational experiences profitable do three things:
a. Introduce yourself to at least 3 people and get their cards.
Ask them why they are there and what they hope to get out of the event. Exchange numbers and ask,
“What is the single most important thing you need help in making your business venture successful?”
When you ask this of someone else you will genuinely get to know someone and you may be able to help them. In addition, out of respect they will want to know more about you and a new relationship may be formed.
b. Go to lunch with someone you meet at the seminar and tell them the things you learned so far and will implement. There is something about speaking your goal out loud that will make it real.
If you immediately implement one single action every time you learn something the results will grow exponentially.
c. Introduce yourself to the speaker.
Sometimes this can be difficult if the event is large. However, if there is a book signing buy their book so while they are signing it you can ask one question.
My question is, “What is the single most important skill you contribute to your success?”
You might like my question or you can come up with your own.
The point is you have a great opportunity to network and learn from someone who is a master at their craft. Seize the opportunity.
7.Have a goal for every networking opportunity.
Simply going to an event and “working the room” almost never yields any measurable results. Before you attend any event know what you want your outcome to be in advance.
Are you going to meet specific person?
How will you insure your introduction? Make sure you have crafted out a plan and enlist support from someone to help you execute if needed.
if you want to meet someone ask the host of the networking event if they know the person and if they would be willing to introduce you. Your chances of success are almost guaranteed due to the nature of the event.
Networking is often an overlooked opportunity to find a way out of the rat race.
