They dread the thought of trying to make small talk with others, even though they know how important networking is. Many people are so shy that they have a hard time attending events. They simply can’t attend networking events.
Then, there are other people who are not good at networking at all, no matter how hard they try. Often, it can seem like the harder that they try, the worse it gets. Some come across as pushy, and are uncomfortable to be around. Many people try to avoid people who suck at networking, both online and off.
Here are three signs that you suck at networking.
It takes time to become more comfortable around people. With time, patience, and practice, you can become great at networking. You may even look forward to meeting new people once you get in the groove!
It is very important to start attending events every month so you can continue to grow your business. Learn to enjoy yourself and you start attending events several times a month. At events, you need to meet new people, not just hang around people that you already know--try to meet 3-5 new people. You also need to try to reach out to all of your potential clients that are online.
