If you’re not happy where you are career wise, then what will you need to do so that you can reach that level of professional happiness?
I talked to a good friend of mine about my obsessiveness over my career and I never realized that for me to get to where I WANT to be, I may have to sacrifice a lot; family, friends, lifestyle, etc. Am I ready for that? Is there another way?
Here are a few tips: Courtesy of HelloBeautiful.com!
Use Your Resources: If you represent an artists, company and/or not for profit organization, you should look to invite potential clients to an event your current client is hosting. I often receive invitations to listening parties, concerts and fashion shows as a perk of representing some of my clients. Bringing along potential clientele can not only open the door for new business for you, it can also assist with cross promotion and opportunities for your current clients.
Meet For Coffee Instead Of Cocktails: If you live in New York, one thing is for certain and that is the cost of an after work cocktail is the price of a small meal. An invitation for coffee is an invitation to sip slow and spend sensibly while conversing about upcoming projects and how you and your company may assist.
Attend Free Continuing Education Events and Receptions: If you belong to a professional organization such as NABJ, BESLA, BLSA, etc., they often times have free continuing education events and receptions. Pinpoint the person you would like to connect with at these events and make the connection. I subscribed to a legal list serve a year ago and started receiving invitations to free CLEs in re real estate matters. I immediately noticed that the sponsoring title company used these free CLEs as a means to get business from attorneys and attorneys used them to network with other attorneys for referrals.
