Have you ever been a part of a networking group?

What was your experience like?

Was it a group that was exclusive to one business per category? Or was it a group that included everyone?

I have been involved in both kinds of groups.  I understand the idea behind the exclusive group, but I am wondering if it does more harm than good

This may hit a nerve for you, I acknowledge that, however you may ask yourself, why.  I am not saying I don’t enjoy these networking groups.  I absolutely do, however, I wonder what would happen if they were open to anyone…

Often I hear businesses run on a “fear” based philosophy.  You know, worrying about what the “competition” is doing, or how they are running their business.   I feel that exclusive networking groups foster this fear for many of its members.

What would happen if:

  • You became friends with your competition
  • Your competition became a resource
  • You let go of a fear based business and adopted an abundance based business

 

What is an abundance based business anyway?

You know, the philosophy that there are PLENTY of customers to go around…

What I do know is for me and my business, if I look at all of my potential clients, there is no way I could service all of them.  When my practice is totally full, and my groups are overflowing, there are still plenty of mom business owners to go around.  I know, appreciate, and am thankful for that!

I also support that fact that my customers are my biggest cheerleaders.  If there is not a good fit between myself and a potential customer, then I want to be able to point them in the right direction.  That direction may very well be, my “competition“.

For that reason, I participate in monthly lunches with all of my “competitors”.  And I must say, it is a monthly meeting that I look forward to.  Honestly, I would not be where I am today, if I was not a part of this group.

Think about it:

  • This group of people understands my business
  • They speak my language
  • They can empathize and support what I am going through
  • They are a great resource, and we can learn from one another
  • They totally get my successes or my challenges

 

So I ask you…

What is your business philosophy, fear or abundance?

How is this philosophy serving you and your business?

If fear is leaving you tired, stressed, or paranoid, what do you want to do about it?

I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences!
