Hot Networking – The National Business Experts!!!

TNBE

Where Networking Gets Hot!

I interviewed with Gia Heller and her networking group, at that time known as Arizona Women (AWN) & Arizona Men (AMN) Networking, more than 16 months ago.  I’ve watched it blossom in to something that is absolutely the best of the best; not just in Arizona, but quickly evolving in to The National Business Experts (TNBE) with groups starting in several states, rapidly becoming a nationwide force.

As exciting as that is, we are now helping women & men all over the world starting with “Empowering the Women of Pakistan” to stand and be counted among the independent business people of the world.  When a business woman in Pakistan looks on the Internet and finds Gia Heller and The National Business Experts, you know you’ve put your kite in to the right wind!

There are so many networking groups to choose from in every city.  We all need the feeling of connection and validation that comes from long-term real world relationships found only in being a part of something bigger than ourselves.

TNBE is the catalyst that has allowed those of us who are serious about our passions, like Becky Feola owner ofAssisted Living Advantage who helps people transition in to an assisted care home, Cynthia Knight, the East Phoenix Valley realty expert for “first time home buyers” and Christina Wagner, Marketing Director for KFNX 1100 Newstalk Radio , grow.

That is just a small sample of the varied group members & businesses that have learned how to shine through social media, like FacebookTwitter, and LinkedIn under the careful tutelage of Gia & her social media team of experts Social Media Masters, including Heather Dopson & Patti Knoles.  It is all a part of making yourself over from a small business, to one that people seek out and follow on a daily basis.

One of our newest members, Kimberley & Brett Noe of AngryBadger Studios w/Brett Noe Productions, researched all the networking options in the Phoenix area and landed with Gia & TNBE.  Listening to her and following all the instructions she gave them, they have been able to gain 35 new customers in less than 45 days.  That is absolutely incredible for a video/film company.  But they did listen – they did learn – they did grow.

You owe it to yourself & your business to check out at The National Business Experts!

Semiotics of Social Networking

You JUST found out you are UNEMPLOYED – Oh My Gosh – What do I do now???

What? – You get out there and you find places where people gather – Go online & find free networking events – Talk to people in the stores, in the bank lines, in the unemployment line – you NEVER know where your next opportunity is going to come from!

Take this time to look (not back) forward – See what it is you really want to do – and then MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Don’t sit for one minute thinking “oh pity me” – It will get you nowhere, but … drum roll please … unemployed.

Do you love to write – to cook – to introduce people to one another – Do you love finances – or management! – Are there free classes you can take that will help you with your social media so people can see the value in what you are and who you are?

There are so many things waiting for you – you just have to lift your head, kick back those shoulders, and stand proud!

Nobody ever moved ahead with their head down and buried in the sand…

Social Media Is Here To Stay – Are You?

Everything we do today in the Social Media world is here literally forever…It’s the in-thing to do for every age; old,  young, and the in-betweeners!  There is the blog, the Facebook, the LinkedIn, the Twitter and every one of them goes to every person with a computer and a net connection.  Will what you say today have content and context tomorrow?

What we feel today – will we feel the same tomorrow? – Is the anger you feel today going to be the same anger you feel tomorrow?  We must remember that the person we yell at in print today is the same person you may want as a customer, a friend, a connection tomorrow.

How do we control what we say?  By thinking two and sometimes three times before we hit send – it is the same with Social Media that we have grown up with in the world of E-mail.  Think and think again.  We can’t take back what we’ve said.  We all demand more and more of our “world” and those in it…
