There’s nothing like networking⁠ to get you on the road to success…. and provoke anxiety.⁠

I like to say that when I invite people to a networking event, people often have the same reaction as if I said, ⁠

“Hey! Do you want to go sit in traffic with me?”⁠
Traffic sucks. ⁠

So, let’s make sure that networking doesn’t feel like “work” ⁠…. or traffic.⁠


As a photographer, I used to go to tons of networking events in hopes of meeting other business owners in my industry, entrepreneurs who might become friends, and, yes, photographers, too.⁠

⁠But a lot of photographers weren’t really interested in meeting me. ⁠

They saw me as the competition.⁠

⁠⁠We’ve all been there, right?⁠

We’re trying to grow our networks, but we’re not always sure the best way to do it.⁠

So, I decided to break the system and District Bliss started hosting welcoming, collaborative networking socials. ⁠⁠

They were immediately popular.⁠

Clearly, I wasn’t the only person craving this type of environment where everyone can feel welcome, safe, and really enjoy meeting new people!⁠

⁠Today, I thought I’d share a few of my tips for networking that I’ve seen work time and time again:⁠

⚡Go into the event with an open mind.⁠
⚡Don’t forget that even people who you consider to be your competition may need to refer to — or hire — you at some point.⁠
⚡Don’t avoid networking altogether.⁠
⚡Ask questions, engage, and really listen to the people you meet. ⁠

Will we see you at today's Networking Social?⁠

Join us at 6:30pm ET / 3:30pm PT for some welcoming networking that is 🌟fun🌟⁠

Handling objections as a business owner — does that sounds scary, overwhelming, frustrating, and maybe impossible to anyone else out there?⁠ 🙋⁠

As a business owner, you will inevitably run into objections along the way.⁠

Sometimes, they will appear in the form of questions, poor reviews — or even lack of sales — and, sometimes they will be unexpected.⁠

We use these simple steps to remove the objections — and sometimes even convert sales!⁠

⚡ Neutralize the discussion. Start by saying something along the lines of, “thank you for bringing this to my attention.” Once you've brought the emotional reaction back to zero, it's much easier to move forward with eliminating the objection.⁠

⚡ Be direct, unattached, and concise. Use language that is not emotionally charged when acknowledging the objection.⁠

⚡ Take the high road. Regardless of whether or not their objection is legitimate in your eyes, you cannot remove an objection by telling someone that they are incorrect in feeling the way that they do.⁠

⚡ Refer them to the proper person to remedy the objection. If the objection is a public review, requesting that the person reaches out to your email address — or the email address of your customer service equivalent — goes a long way. It shows everyone reading the review or seeing the objection that you care and that you're taking it seriously. It also indicates to the person raising the objection that you've heard them and that you're committed to fixing the problem.⁠

Shout out to @csecoaching and @sproutcreativela for imparting some of this knowledge to me and always encouraging me to handle objections head-on, rather than hiding from them. 🙌⁠

We can't always avoid objections, but handling them in a professional, courteous manner goes a long way — and can even convert a sale if handled properly!⁠

What are some of your tips for handling objections? 👇⁠

I'm going to need a few lattes (can I just order a gallon?) after this weekend's Events that Monetize Bootcamp.⁠

It was awesome.⁠

Our guests went from idea 🤔 to finding their ideal audience⚡ to creating an incredible guest (and speaker) experience 🙌 to prepared to execute a profitable event! 🌟⁠

We had an amazing group and it was an absolute blast!⁠

And, now, I'm taking the day off. Because self-care is a thing and I need to recharge (and caffeinated 😂 )⁠
