About the Episode:

Have you been receiving a lot of connection requests on LinkedIn? 

Deep down, your gut knows most of them are scams. In the long run, it’s hindering you from connecting with people because you fear being labelled a scam. I understand you!

In the last episode, I shared how to build credibility. Today, I’d like us to put the credibility we’ve built to work by making connections. The journey to building connections on LinkedIn starts with building a network. You must create a group of people you want to surround you. These people can range from podcast hosts, CEOs, journalists, and others in your industry. Episode 205 expounds on the various relationships you need to have. I challenge you to make sure that you connect with five people weekly this year. 

As you look for people to connect with, I want you to refrain from playing small. Feel free to get in touch with influential people and work downward. Forget about going through the gatekeepers first. You’ll meet them somewhere along the way. For instance, you can connect with a CEO who connects you with his/her assistant for information or to book a meeting.

 Listen in to learn more about how to build LinkedIn connections.

Magical Quotes from the Episode:

“Networking/talking to people is what’s going to build your business. Nobody will invest in your highest ticket opportunities before they talk to you.”

“The beauty of LinkedIn is not the algorithm and the reach, which I get asked a lot about. It’s in the connections.”

“When I say to you start connecting at the top level, you have to feel and believe and truly understand that you are worthy of connecting with these the most influential people in your industry.”
