Isn’t it amazing how people surround you daily from all over the world? Different places, different faces and they all have a desire to get to know you! Welcoming people into your space can be challenging if you don’t know how to manage relationships. Being confident and secure in who you are as an individual helps when networking with people that you have not established a relationship with. I have realized that connecting and building a relationship with people from all walks of life can only be a WIN/WIN situation. You are who you are and only you have the power to change that. Once we accept our imperfections and our perfections (because we all have something that we do amazing well) it becomes much easier to approach people, shake hands, hug, and smile on a regular basis. All of these actions go into the category of “shining” and when you’re shining guess what?! You are attracting people to you! The brighter you shine a higher caliber of individual begins to place themselves in your circle and remain solid contacts. Celebrities were once average everyday people until they began letting people in to their world and managing their connections wisely.
