Few realize these common "connecting" mistakes

 👇 Podcast:   Parenting Your "Nearly Grown"   JUST.   GOT.   EASIER.👇 

#99 There is a reason why networking is critical in your personal life. 

"Being likeable and interesting is not necessary" said nearly no one anywhere.  It is not only a crucial skill, but the rewards are many.  From investing in the lives of others you meet, to helping in your business or professional life as well, it's a skill that needs practice.   

With all the amazing benefits of being accomplished at personal networking, many  assume "i will pick this skill up as I go along".   The big heartbreaker in leaving it to "I'll pick it up as I go along" is a big life question.  What amazing relationships, connections, and even life friendships have been left unrealized?  It just doesn't have to be this way.  

Even more importantly, your child can and should learn how to be likeable and interesting early in life.  Of course, they already are both of these but do they know how to express it?  There are techniques we all need to know in order master this skill.  Things that are left to "by chance" learning can often take years longer than needed.  Years?  It's just not worth the risk of "I'll pick this skill up as I go along."
