Stop Networking. Do This Instead…

I’m sure you don’t love heading out the door to go to another networking event. They are definitely worthwhile and have many merits, however they can be a bit of a snoozefest.

What are you doing out in the community? Are you making the most of your time in all of your hobbies to let people know what you do and how you can help them?

So it’s important to make the most of the time you spend out in the community. Get involved with the groups that you are often with and use this time to make connections and let people know that you are an integral part of their health team.

Do your kids play sports? Offer to check the players at no cost. Or offer to care for the players at no cost if one of the parents are under care. See what works in your situation and make the most of your time.

Do you go to church?

Offer to do a seminar for the members at no cost if they bring $10 to donate to a local charity. Or an unwrapped toy if it is at Christmas. Choose a topic that you know would be interesting that appeals to a wide variety of people.

Part of a club?

Give the members of your club the opportunity to come in for a health check by giving them all VIP cards. They can come in and check out your office and because they already know you, will be much more likely to refer their friends to you.

Friends?

Ask your friends to get you in touch with their Human Resources Director or Health and Safety Colleague. Ask if you can do a Lunch and Learn Seminar at their place of work. Or host a Snack and Chat. Bring veggie and fruit trays and have a nutrition talk and then tie it into the nervous system. Take some time to consider all of the places you go in a month. Jot down key people that you see often and be sure they know what you do. Many people don’t really understand the profession, so be sure you take any opportunities that arise to introduce your philosophy and how you’re helping your patients with their health. You can even consider the grocery store!! The cashiers are standing for several hours, twisting and pulling heavy items across in front of them. What better candidate could there be that needs to get adjusted?! And of course the lady standing behind you with two screaming children. Her family needs to get adjusted as well. Don’t be afraid to reach out and talk to people. There are people in your path every single day that are begging for the solutions to their health problems, years of pain and suffering who need relief from the stresses they are under. Take a moment to connect with the people around you and they will be so happy that you cared enough to say hello.
