In this episode, Jake is talking with Joe Sweeney, New York Times Bestselling author.
Joe grew up in Madison, Wisconsin, as number nine of ten children. He attributes his knowledge of networking to his parents and his life growing up. His parents taught him that if you thought life would be all about you, you wouldn’t make it in this organized chaos of their family life. So Joe grew up learning that you that you had to watch out for other people. The great networkers understand that networking is a place where you give and serve, not just get things for yourself.
In his life, Joe learned that birth order has a huge effect on what kind of networker you can become. The youngest members of families often feel as if they’re not taken seriously and so they often spend their lives fighting to get the recognition they desire. This can drive them to become great networkers.
Listen in as Joe talks today about what drove him into networking and how you can improve your own networking skills to help you in your personal and professional life. Networking is not about you and what you can get, but what you can give to others. Keeping that in mind can help you build bridges between people and help you move in the right direction toward your goals.
