And just before I get to my amazing guest today – you are going to LOVE her – I wanted to let you know that I have opened a waitlist for my Little Black Book on Black Friday. I am creating a guide to help you maximise sales and profits during the Black Friday sale period. It’s not just for e-commerce businesses and the guide’s not just about one day. It’s about making the most of all the hype and cashing in without the overwhelm and the stress. This guide is going to be fantastic. So if you want to join the waitlist (no commitment – just join the list) then go here: https://bit.ly/BFWaitListJenn – heads up though, this guide won’t be free, there will be a cost because it’s worth it. Just wanted to be clear on that. Can’t wait to help you be more profitable around this time of the year.
Okay, onto today’s episode and my A-MAZ-ING guest. Wendy Lloyd Curley. Wendy is one of my favourite humans – we have met through She’s the Boss (a fabulous community – if you’re not a part of it, come join, and tell Jules I sent you there!) and I always love our chats. Wendy is going to guide us on networking today – specifically strategic networking.
Wendy lives in Sydney, and she’s in a band where she sings and plays guitar most weekends. Professionally, Wendy is the founder of Strategic Networking, a consultancy and training firm that helps uncomfortable networkers become comfortable. She is also the franchise owner and executive director for BNI Sydney North East. BNI is the world’s most successful network for generating business referrals and Wendy thrived in BNI as a member for 10 years before buying her franchise. She lives and breathes marketing and strategy and that’s probably why we get along so well….
