Tonight I went to the Legacy Restaurant in Nashville to see Crystal P. (www.crystalpiscrazy.com) Crystal is a very funny and clean young comedienne. While I was seated at her table, I started to think about how I came to know her. My good friend Jonathan Slocumb (comedian) had a Cuss Free Comedy series and asked me to advertise the Nashville show last April. I did and Zannies was PACKED OUT!!!! Crystal P. was on that show. She and Marcus Harvey (theMarcusHarvey.com) took the time to “kick it” with me after the show. Now I was at one of Crystal’s shows! It started me thinking about how important relationships are in life. Me and Crystal laughed and talked like old friends during our second meeting because both of us made the most out of our first meeting. I have had the opportunity to meet may people at various events. Some of them are singers, actors, comedians, producers, emcees and radio/tv personnel. No matter what the job, I have established a relationship with them. This has been a blessing!
Networking is not just about what people can do for you, it is mostly about relationships. In fact today’s version of networking (social media) is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS! I am so glad to have the relationships that I have been blessed to create with a vast array of individuals. If you check my management site (www.N1SManagement.com) you will see great speakers, performers, producers and other professionals who are also my friends. Please check them out! I created a relationship with them and now they trust me with their careers and/or projects. Relationships can turn into anything!
Create a relationship of some degree whenever you meet someone and watch it make a difference in your life!
