Recently, I ran out to some of the local businesses in our area to drop off receipts for advertising they had done in the program for our music school’s Spring concert. I debated whether or not to mail them and not hassle with actually taking the time to do it in person.
But I decided going in person was a chance for me to get out there and be in front of people again so they’d remember me better and be able to put a face to my name and business.
Well, it turned out to be a positive experience. Many of the business owners were very appreciative of me stopping by and told me to let them know if I do something like this in the future. Not only that, I may have gotten a new client out of it too.
If we want to rise above the status quo and do something extraordinary, we’ve got to get out there and meet other people. Yes, we’re in the digital age and you can do a ton online these days. However, many deals, collaborations, and opportunities take place after meeting someone in person.
Claudia and I experienced this after a recent conference we attended. Not only did we get to spend a couple of days with one of our mentors, we made new connections and new friends with some amazing people doing incredible things.
Have you met new people recently? Have you told anyone new about what you’re doing in a while? If not, I encourage you to do so. I think you’ll be met with success from some of those new relationships just like I was.
