Overall mindset

  • Do not network. Instead, try to empathize with people first.
  • Do not offer your product. It is preferable to act like you are having fun with new people.
  • You have to look approachable. Try not to use your phone, and avoid looking busy at events. 
  • Do not take yourself too seriously. Try to relax before attending an event.

Starting a conversation

  • Have an interesting object with you. This can be a hat
  • Try having a conversation with a single person rather than a group of people. You could ask questions about the event or simply say hello.
  • Do not be boring. Act as if you were already friends with a new person.
  • Find a common interest. continue the conversation with topics you both have in common

Always have something to say

To avoid running out of topics or ideas, use the F.O.R.D method. You can also ask about these lines.

  • F. family
  • O. occupation
  • R. recreation
  • D. dreams

Communication through physical touch

Communication through physical touch

Even though not everyone enjoys being touched, if they do, you can communicate with them more successfully.

By lightly touching the elbows, you can tell if a new acquaintance enjoys physical contact.

You should respect someone's personal space if they don't enjoy physical contact; you can still communicate without it.

Show your value

Show your value

If you don't show your value you will be overlooked and underrated, try this:

  • Use braggin modesty to show your value, casual mention all your interesting things.
  • Don't be afraid to tell a fascinating story about what you did, but be careful not to overdo it. See the facial reaction of the person if they are listening to you or just waiting for you to finish so they can talk; it is a way to measure if you are bragging too much.
  • Just give a bussines card when the other person ask for it, or only give it when there is a reason to do so.

Exit strategy

If you want to meet as many people as possible, don't spend the entire day talking to just one person. Before you leave a conversation, you can do the following two things.

  • Say goodbye. Don't lie about going to the bathroom; instead, stop asking questions and wait for the conversation to end so you can say goodbye.
  • Exchange contact information. Don't forget about it. Make sure you can contact this new acquaintance a day before the event.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
