Yikes! I'm an Introvert!

Start by meeting people one-on-one with coffee.

Choose someone you hear is well connected (or start with me>>) , explain your fear, and they'll likely meet you at a few events where you can shadow them, glean their tips, and they can introduce you. They may also introduce you electronically to a few people.

The 101s of meeting people is to remember, it's not about you. The more questions you ask about them, the more they will like you. Yep, that's how it works.

Where they grew up, their hobbies, do they like to travel, are all great questions.

Ask them who else they recommend you meet.

Follow up with people you met with a *short* email, text and/or LinkedIn connection.

The next time you see them, you'll see what they're up to in order to continue the conversation.

These tips can set you up for success. Always remember, everyone started in your shoes. If you're awkward, explain you're new. People will be kind.

 

Go Outside Your Circle

Find the events that matter to who you want to meet.

Make a point of meeting three new people and learning one new Volunteer. The larger the company, the more expensive the event typically costs to gain access. Nonprofit causes that are endearing to those individuals gets you in the same room as well.
