The Secret to Networking

Bill Allen, Broker Associate October 29, 2015 : Bill's Blog

Many people believe networking is all about showing up and showing off at events. These people are not making the most of the opportunity, while possibly coming off arrogant and prude. The secret to networking, according to several networking gurus,  is to build and leverage mutually beneficial relationships.

 

Some important steps to take when beginning to network include doing preliminary research about who will be at the event and who you specifically want to talk with. During the event, it is more helpful to collect business cards than to give them out. When engaging in a conversation, forget the elevator pitch and find commonality. This will better help you connect with people, showing them how you can relate to one another and building trust. Another observation made at networking events is that everyone is trying to promote themselves. Stand out of the crowd by helping others. This good karma will not let you down. It is also a good idea to network with all kinds of people, not just your favorites. See how you can help them and the return will be worthwhile.

Of course, never talk negative about yourself. Keep the mood light and positive. These good vibes will stick with people and they will associate you with their positive experience, thus potentially gaining you more business!

Emission Free, Electric Cities in 5 Yrs

Bill Allen, Broker Associate October 29, 2015 : Bill's Blog, Uncategorized

A German architect, by the name of Werner Sobek, wants to make emissions-free electric cities within the five years. To accomplish this, Sobek has created a model he calls the B10. This home construction is the first to meet triple zero standards; requiring zero energy, producing zero CO2 emissions, and levels zero waste when dismantled.

This has tremendous opportunity for our energy demanding society and can start to help limit the reliance on non renewable energies.

What do you think? Feel free to check out the short article and reply. I am curious about your thoughts. Would you want to live in this proposed community and house style?
