New Training on “Ick-Free” Networking, February 10th at 3pm EST

Networking with Purpose Live

Let’s face it. If you’re reading my blog, you probably already know how important relationships are.

You don’t need me to tell you.

Basically, you don’t need me at all.

(Shoot, I’m just a little piece of arm candy, aren’t I? I feel so used.)

But more to the point… your career depends on your relationships and your network.

Your impact, your income and your influence depend on these relationships.

People invest tens of thousands – heck, hundreds of thousands – on their college degrees.

What does it get them? Not much. It gets you to “even par” with everyone else.

Don’t you think it would pay off to invest some time and money into the relationships which can have an equally big (or larger) impact on your career?

With the pace of change accelerating, this point is more important than ever.

After all, the whole point of developing relationships with others is because of the knowledge, expertise and connections which those relationships open up for you.

So…. let me ask you specifically:

  • Do you get tired of going to boring networking events like cocktail hours where you feel like you don’t connect with anyone?
  • Are you frustrated that your career isn’t further along at this point, and want to give it a kick in the butt?
  • Do you ever feel like everyone you know has a better job than you?

If any of these things resonate with you, then let’s talk.

On Tuesday, February 10th, at 3:00pm EST, I’ll be participating in a live online training event – Network with Purpose Live. I’ll be joined by two great relationship experts, Matt McWilliams and Mark Sieverkropp.

You can read all about it here.

This event is for you if:

  • You want to increase your income by connecting with people who matter – whether it’s someone influential in your local community, or someone who is world famous.
  • You dream of building your own business but don’t have the right contacts
  • You are stuck in a job you hate and don’t see a way out
  • You have world-changing ideas but no clue how to reach out to the influencers who can help

What we will be covering:

  • The mindset shift all great networkers make.
  • How you CAN make time for networking…and even do it well in less than 10 minutes a day.
  • How to start building your network (and your income) even if you don’t know anyone or feel like you have “nothing to offer”.
  • How to network face-to-face without being one of those annoying business card pushers.
  • How to use new technologies and social media to be a relationship-building rock star.
  • How to find work you love, get the right contacts for your dream job or business, and build intimate relationships with scale.

Let me tell you about my two co-hosts:

  • Matt McWilliams is a blogger, podcaster and business coach who has a crazy story … he was fired four times (twice by the same company and once by his own father), faced 42 years in prison, started two companies that “rose and fell like the Roman Empire.”  He’s crazy… like a fox.
  • Mark Sieverkropp was working in a job he hated two years ago… then he discovered the power of his network and landed in a job that he loved. His story illustrates how rapidly your own story can change when you do the right things at the right times.

They know their stuff – and that’s why I included both of them on my Forbes list of the Top 50 Professional Networking Experts to Watch in 2015.

We’re going to be doing a deep-dive training into the kinds of things you need to be doing TODAY (in 2015) to develop relationships, and turn those relationships into revenue.

Is it free? No. It it expensive? Heck no.

You know what is more expensive? Not doing anything. Waiting another 6 months or a year, frustrated, hoping you’ll magically meet the people who will create new jobs or new opportunities for you.

(Good luck with that.)

Use the code “REVOLUTION” at checkout and you’ll save 25%. That code is good until the end of the day Tuesday February 3rd, 2015. So act quickly.

I will see you Tuesday, February 10th at 3pm EST.



Q: What if I hate networking?

A: Good. We do too. Blech, who needs it. But we love connecting with people, and building relationships. Let’s just not call it “networking,” cool?

Q: What will I learn?

A: There is a detailed syllabus over at the Networking with Purpose Live page.

Q: What if I can’t attend live? Should I still sign-up?

A: Yes! After the live event, you can access the replay for 30 days. If you cannot attend live, we recommend getting the VIP package. Not only will you have access to the replay, but you will be able to choose from ten times to attend the live small group coaching call, which will be held at another time.

Q: Why is the number of VIP tickets capped?

A: The VIP package comes with a bonus small group coaching call that we are capping at 20 people per call. This allows everyone on the call to ask as many questions as they’d like and get more personalized attention. In order to fit all of these calls into a short window and protect the intimacy of the calls, we’re limiting the number of VIP tickets.

Q: Is John going to be giving out oatmeal raisin cookies?

A: Yes. You’ll be able to download your free oatmeal raisin cookies directly through the CD-Rom port in your computer.
