Building A Good Connection


It’s may be easy to connect with a person or a people but it is a greater task to stay connected… I will be sharing the importance of building your network: this was a topic I shared with members of Job and Career Whatsap group October 8th 2017.

I must say it’s a privilege to be here again to share…. I hope to use my career story to inspire someone here reading. Kindly comment belong this post if you were inspired or you have any contribution to make as this will help subsequent post…

Like I normally will just summarize
Simply put:

Stella Adu is my name. I am fondly called Prolific Stella: I am a serial entrepreneur, training coordinator, a skill acquisition trainer(I help youth and stay-at-home women acquire entrepreneurial skills to startup their business through my skill acquisition training) and a social media crusader ๐Ÿ˜€ about.me/stellaadu

Hobbies/Skills: I am passionate about helping people achieve success ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป I love traveling, helping (charity) volunteering, gisting, teaching and cooking. Most importantly, I love being a women. lol๐Ÿ’ƒ

To start with, it is important to say here that in your career path, a strong network of connections will make everything accelerate.๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝ

No matter what profession youโ€™re in, networking is the fuel that accelerates success. ๐Ÿ”จ

Not only is it useful for learning directly from individuals you meet, but the benefits of association and growing your authority are just as powerful as networking. I can’t tell how many network that I have built that has given me a strong authority in my career path.

Hear this: it is not enough to meet people and exchange pleasantries but what have you done with them…rather what value has it added to you?!

Let me say there that:

The best networking comes from genuine relationships, not a business card exchange. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

– No matter whom youโ€™re trying to build a relationship with, it is important for you to treat it or that person personal as a friend rather than just as a business contact; this will take you much further with the relationship and open more business opportunities for you.

โœ”๏ธSo, think about how you would approach a potential friend.
Find something you have in common with, keep it light, make jokes, and above all, show that you care. โœ…

If you have not set up your own personal connections, youโ€™ll need to divide a portion of your time to do this. Are you aware that there is treasure in people?๐Ÿ˜ณ So you don’t want to miss your treasure box this time๐ŸŽ There is everything you need in People! Connect well and you will be glad you did.

We have had it over and again that your network determines your net-worth. The level at which you value people will determine the level at which you go farther in life.

It’s important to say here that people will only do business with you and refer you for better opportunity when thy know that you truly care….

The reason why some people will only do business with you once and will never want to come back is because you have not really build a good relationship…, no feedback no level of pleasantries….
For entrepreneurs, you need to know that your Clients want to be sure that it is not just about their money that you are after, but how well you have bring able to solve the problem they brought to you!

One of the ways to building a strong connection with clients and even prospects is:
Cultivate the habit of sending text, email to know their experience after meeting with you or after doing business with you (feedback ); and update them on your products and services. Let them know they you have improved because of their consumption- to give them a better satisfaction. No one will know that you are working for their good and will not be willing to stay put (connected).

I need you to know that a strong network of relationships, can enable you:

โœ”๏ธcontact smart friends, and learn their opinions on all issue,
โœ”๏ธget information and knowledge that are difficult to obtain on your own,
โœ”๏ธhelp the company/brand/ your business look for more potential partners, investors, sponsors, etc.
โœ”๏ธIncrease your income generating opportunities

Thus, go get to know your work colleague or boss very well…

*If you are an entrepreneur,

your network connections will be your early customers,๐Ÿ˜ณ just like is working for me now๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฟ

Do you know that everyone you meet are a source of capital…? ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€. yea

Again, rather than go home, or going to a bar, you should find some inner circles…

There are many small groups which are highly relevant to your career, so you don’t want to joke with joining a social groups especially online…๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ like the one we are in …

You should try to integrate into these circles-learn to interact with people and get to know them personal!

Be genuinely interested in people because everything you ever need is in people!!!

However, in your quest in meeting people, find a way to add value!

Don’t always look for want to gain first! A value added individual will natural get value in return!โœ…

To be continued….

It’s an awesome Wednesday for you.๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŽ

Thank you all for having me.

Do you know that September is your month of perfection for real? ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘Œ

๐Ÿ’ Like the other months, its name comes from the ancient Romans. It comes from the Latin septum, meaning “seven”. This might strike you as odd, since September is the ninth month of the year but that’s why it is a perfect month having 9 letters of the Alphabet Originally, though, when March was the first month of the year, September came in at number seven. Therefore, God shall perfect all that concerns you in Jesus name! AMEN!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Good news!!!
September 1st is my Birthday! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜€
So happy new month to you and Happy birthday to Me!๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

So I chose to impact my world instead of throwing partying…lol

The Business of Building People



In the journey called life, you need to know that everything you may ever need can be got through “People” Think about anything and I will tell you that it’s in person! ๐Ÿ‘Œ
~Money, connections, Favour, hubby & wifey: Everything you need is in people as Mr Stephen Akintayo will always say, so treat PEOPLE well. be careful what you say to PEOPLE whether you are happy & sad because it’s will count!
~Build and invest in PEOPLE including yourself and you will be happy you did.

***Last year, I read a reply from a woman below my post that says:

“ProlificStella, each time I read your post I get inspired not to give up on my dream/career seeing that entrepreneurship is not a child’s play …because seeing the way you push especially the joy and the dedication that comes with it even though there are not much you have done…I say to myself: ‘if this young lady that doesn’t have all that is available for me in business is moving…she hasn’t even perfected all I think I have….so what’s delaying is simply me!’ I think I am the one delaying and giving up on my career from seeing the limelight!”

~Reading this gives me a scene of joy that I am a force for someone and a few others not to give up on their dream!

What about you? Keep doing what you know how to do well and be deliberate about it! start from where you are with what you have, and you will surely not remain where you used to be! As you work towards your future, the most important thing you will need to achieve your dream is not money but PEOPLE

My advice therefore for you is Love PEOPLE value PEOPLE and most importantly build PEOPLE

~ Jesus had to build 12 men for three and half years to take over the world for Him and don’t forget not everyone you build will be useful. Judas Iscariot was built by Jesus but he was not useful to the Kingdom” Sometimes building people may not be easy because those you are building up may not even be able to pay you but let the joy of being part of the world changers/influencers moves you.

Guess what? September 1st is here! ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป Yea yea
