“When you invest in a high level through a networking group, you want to do well to attract others because that reflects the values of your organization.” — Ursula Mentjes (32:19-32:30)
There is a long string of opportunities that you can find in virtual networking. Even if that's something you're not used to, it's about learning to be comfortable with being uncomfortable. Take the time to investigate incredible opportunities for you to network online and seek out people who are potential power partners. Take advantage of the virtual meeting platforms that you can use for coaching sessions, or anything you think is going to be helpful in your networking process.

Moreover, you have to develop a good relationship and credibility when thinking about referring to the most important people in your life potentially to each other. If we listen to what the important people in our lives are saying, there are referral opportunities pouring out of their mouths. But we have to care enough to want to help them. And when you can become an invaluable resource to your clients, they're not going to leave you because even when your competitors are knocking on their doors.
“There are tons of great groups that are phenomenal to network.” — Ursula Mentjes (33:42-33:46)
Power partners are those that are related to your business, you're not in competition with each other, but you share the same type of client. They also provide an endless source of referrals. And when you build that right power team, it can be done within an exclusive category networking organization. And so, seeking out your best potential power partners and building the right relationships with them is a great way to build your network, and develop your opportunity to grow your business that way. When you invest in a high level through a networking group, you want to do well to attract others because that reflects the values of your organization.
