BNI Elevate is a networking community organized to help our members make more money through structured collaboration and referrals.
Recently, we learned that we are sitting on a gold mine here at Elevate, and that we have to work hard mining tons of dirt to get our gold.
But quite often we spend our time trying to make the perfect mining plan to make sure we maximize our effort and get every last gram of gold out of the ground.
And when the first version of the perfect mining plan is ready, do you know what most people do next?
They start refining the plan instead of mining the gold.
The reality is that there is no perfect plan; there is no perfect time; there is no perfect situation.
And right now our businesses have been affected by COVID, but what can we do to ensure our future success?
We have a big advantage that most do not.
We are members of the premier networking group in the premier city in the United States and we have 90 top professionals that want to help us.
So how can we leverage this chapter better in this challenging time?
- Schedule more 121s.
- Attend every power team event this month even if it’s not your primary team.
- Follow up with every member you’ve done business with and get 5 star reviews from them.
- Attend MSP and get some additional tips on how to be a better networker.
- Send your weekly email to the group and ask for something to be shared on their social media.
The only thing that we can be assured of is that activity will breed success even if it’s far from perfect.
So your action item for today is to take action…no matter what that action is.
And then do the same thing tomorrow and the next day, and I guarantee that you’ll definitely make more money.
