Introverts have to network too.

Fortunately, there are plenty of introvert-friendly ways to do it! Even if you’re not a showperson, even if the thought of “networking” makes you cringe, there is a way to make connections.

Best of all? You don’t have to wander *too* far out of your comfort zone.

Today, we share a few ways to network that don’t feel forced, fake, or otherwise unnatural. Introversion doesn’t have to hold you back socially or professionally. You simply have to work with what you’ve got — and what you’ve got is more than adequate.

MBA1784 Guest Teacher – Jon Levy – How to Quickly Earn Trust

The best way to be an influencer? Earn the trust of the influential.

Making a good name for yourself starts with trust. But too many people (and brands) try to earn trust in ways that are superficial, or too focused on demonstrating their value. 

Today’s guest teacher, Jon Levy, believes there’s a better way.

It’s less about proving yourself, and more about making meaningful connections. And surprisingly, what others can do for you is just as important as what you can do for them. 

It’s all part of the real psychology of trust.

Jon Levy is a behavioral scientist, speaker, and author of The 2 AM Principle and You’re Invited. With an analytical, but boundless approach, Jon helps people radically redefine the possible. 

Tune in, and learn what it really takes to make deep connections, earn trust, and become influential. Click Play!

Has your company been asked to sponsor an online event?

Once your business has a certain reach, online event planners will notice. They’ll come to you with offers to sponsor an online conference, seminar, or other event — and promise serious brand exposure for you.

Is it really a good investment?

It’s Q&A Wednesday Monday, and we’re talking to a listener who’s considering it. Our companies have sponsored multiple events, both online and in-person, so we know how promising it can seem. 

We also know what makes it truly worth your money.

We’ll discuss what makes a worthwhile sponsorship package, what to expect, and what to insist on. If you play your cards right, sponsoring an online event can be a huge opportunity.

MBA1781 Should You Outsource Customer Support

As your business scales, you’ll need more customer support. There are companies out there that can handle it for you. 

Easy, right? 

Just pay a fee, and let someone else answer questions, troubleshoot, and otherwise deal with your customers for you. But is it a good idea? By outsourcing support, do you give up something besides the workload?

We approach this issue a little differently in our company.

Today, we discuss the up-and-downsides of farming out your support. We’ll explain why some companies need to do this, what they get out of it, and what they lose. We’ll also share our own approach to support, and why it’s been so crucial to the success of our business. 

Listen in, and decide what’s best for you. Click Play!
