It's not what you know, it's WHO you know.

Goei Center Kindel Room / 5:30 - 8:30 PM

Create NEW Connections at our LAST In-Person Networking Event of 2021.


It's not what you know, it's WHO you know.

I am sure that you have heard the adage "It's not what you know, it's who you know" and from my personal experience it's been 100% TRUE.

Of course, you have to be able to produce results in your area of expertise, but the simple fact of the matter is that when you are connected to the right people, they will advocate for you, refer you, and offer you opportunities before they are publicly available.


Networking is a GIVE, GIVE, GIVE, and TAKE relationship. Ask questions, listen, find out how you can help them achieve THEIR goals. Always offer at least 51% more value.


One of our NXTWRKNG event attendees revealed to me that they setup FOUR meetings, and that at least ONE of them ended in a deal.


Now there are many factors that contribute to networking success, and everyone's results will be different, but the simple fact of the matter is that THEY SHOWED UP to MPWRDX NXTWRKNG, made a connection, followed up, and closed the deal.


It only takes ONE introduction to the right person,  to advance your career or business.


Let's connect on October 13th!
