The right expectations of MBN meeting outcomes is critical for success.
Networking offers much but you must start with the right approach to get the most from your efforts. Networking at MBN is based on RELATIONSHIPS. In business people do business with people they TRUST its that simple. Once people get to know you, like and trust you - they will give and refer business to you, and the depth of your relationship will open opportunities that you can't foresee!
However if your approach to networking is to treat your MBN networking group like a VENDING MACHINE that all you need to do is come along and the group delivers referrals to you, you will not be successful. You need to think of networking like going to a GYM to get fit; you have to attend regularly, put in the training, put the effort in, build your strength and skills you will get the results you desire.
Reality is there are no magic get fit pills!
