Ignore What Your Parents Told You
We spend our childhoods being told to never speak to strangers but then discover, as we grow up, we need to do just that, repeatedly.
Some strangers are more comfortable to talk to, others are often more complicated, such as the strangers you meet in social situations. These are the people who have the potential of being your future friends and bring you business opportunities. These are the strangers who could matter. To some, meeting this type of stranger can be quite intimidating.
How do you get past the initial trepidation and talk to even strangers comfortably?
William Butler Yeats perhaps said it best. “There are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t yet met.”
How much does networking make you nervous or freak you out? Let me know in the comments.
