Please take a moment to read the behaviors that we love and have proven to succeed in TBN. You’ll notice right away that what you do for a living is not as important as who you are.
- Be a Resource – by being a resource to others FIRST you’ve already taken the first step in positioning yourself as the go-to person in the marketplace. Be a resource to your friends, clients, referral partners, and collaborative partners and you’ll never run out of clients. If you’re new to business, you too can be a resource by connecting to others in your group.
- Be an Influencer – by being a positive influence on others you’ve already positioned yourself as someone everyone will want to be around. If you’re an influencer how long do you think it’ll take for you to begin seeing referrals?
- Be Open for Business – by being open for business, you now have a target on your back. (This is a good target by the way.) People will want to work with you all day! If you open yourself up, you’ll see benefits right away from these relationships.
- Be the Change you want to see – treat others how you wish to be treated. That’s all there is about that one.
- Be the Network – you are TBN. How do you want to represent your friends and colleagues?
The next set of behaviors are not ones that we love and will put you in a position of very little success in TBN. They might even get you thrown out!
- Sexual misconduct – be respectful of others. Inappropriate behavior of any kind will not be tolerated.
- Foul language – be respectful of others. Using foul language is not something a person should be using in a professional environment.
- Don’t be a product pusher – the fastest way to run off a potential friend is to only talk about the products you offer. You also want to keep your presentations to yourself during a 1:1. Using a video or slideshow to build relationships is not a good way to begin.
- Newsletter permission – the fastest way to turn someone off after a networking meeting is to just add them to your e-newsletter. Ask first!
