The Networking Mindset: A Fresh Perspective on Connecting with Others

Rebranding The Word "Networking" | Flourish Careers Podcast


Does the word “networking” make you cringe?

It feels icky because most people think of networking as asking strangers for favors or a job. I agree, it will definitely feel awkward if you just call someone up and ask them for a job.

So let’s not do that.

Networking isn’t asking strangers for favors:

>> It’s about connection and building relationships in a comfortable way <<

Your approach to building relationships gets to be as authentic and exciting as the career you’re trying to create. You get to have conversations with people you like and respect on topics that energize YOU.

In today’s episode, we dive into:

✨ How to gather CONFIDENCE to move beyond your fears (no surprise that mindset is a HUGE piece of this)
✨ Learn how to CONNECT online in ways that are comfortable for you
✨ Turn your connections into CONVERSATIONS through informational interviews

Join me on my mission to REBRAND the word “networking” from icky to inviting!
