23: The 2019 Guide to Increasing Your Return on Networking Events

Get ready for a jam-packed networking podcast episode! Make sure you take the time to listen to the whole episode, as Sara gives us a ton of great information about building real relationships and maximizing your networking relationships.

On this episode of The Self Made Strategies Podcast, we sat down with Sara Rosenberg of PowerMatch (https://www.powermatchonline.com/).

About our guest:

You know how it goes. You walk into a “networking event”, you grab a drink, and you are immediately confronted with 7 financial advisors, 6 multi-level marketing reps, and a bunch of people trying to sell you something.

That’s not networking. That’s largely a waste of time.

Those weekly networking meetings? Well, they’re okay, but they’re expensive, they’re every single week, and they’re hyper focused on referrals, many of which can be bogus…and what happens when you don’t “click” with certain professionals in your group?

PowerMatch believes in building real business relationships. That’s what networking is all about! You tell us the types of professionals you want to build business relationships with and we search through our database, match you up with the perfect networking partners, schedule you to meet with them, and send you off to meet over coffee (usually in a small group of three professionals) to figure out how you can help each other! That’s what we think networking is all about!
