If you are in business and want to leverage your time one of the most effective ways to do this is to be part of a team.
Being on a team gives you more time to be “working on” your business as opposed to “working in” your business. For example, what if your 5 calls per day to meet people were leveraged with a team of 10. That’s 10 x 5 = 50 calls per day… 50 x 5 = 250 calls per week…..
What if your team is a networking group and you have a plan, and each month you create a special day to invite the people you are meeting to join you?
What if this means you can help them by giving them an opportunity to meet new people to grow their business? What if this means your team will also have the opportunity to meet these people?
What if we call it GUEST DAY?
Sound good? Read on:
1 – What is the Goal of the monthly Guest Day?
To grow your personal database! If you have a business, you need to meet new people!
Do you want to grow your personal contact database and meet new people?
Yes? Read on:
No: Awesome! I would really like to connect as it would seem it is time for you to expand your business.
I know a LOT of people and would love to help you make that happen!
2 – You joined a Network to meet new people and grow your business?
Yes? Read on:
No: I would love to hear from you to understand your reason for joining a network.
As part of my learning process and business process improvement cycle, I think it is important to understand all the different reasons why people join a network.
3 – You want to learn and practice strategies of successful business people?
Yes? Read on:
No: I really want to speak to you! I am always looking to engage people who have these strategies nailed down tight.
The more I can connect with people like you who might be willing to share, the better off everybody is.

It will give you a reason to reach out and MEET new people.
The goal is to work and grow your personal database, a great benefit of this action and habit that all successful business people utilize (like 5 calls per day) is that it will also give you connections to other businesses that want to grow their business.
They will definitely remember you for being so thoughtful and offering them this opportunity, didn’t you like being invited?
You are not selling them anything, right? Remember when you are in business the #1 activity to do is always be meeting people to grow your database.
From a group perspective here’s how your month should work:
First week: (map it out)
Who do we need in our group?
Second week: (accountability)
Who did you reach out to?
How many people did you meet?
Third week: (logistics)
Take a look at your list and lets figure out who is coming?
Fourth week: (enjoy the benefits of your efforts)
Successful Guest Day!
This exercise is about growing your database not selling Networking Memberships.
Nobody really wants to be “SOLD”. Besides…
Your goal is to MEET them!
IF your meeting adds value to a business person’s life, and they decide to be a part of your group, AWESOME!
IF they decide not to join but connect you to $50,000.00 in business, ALSO AWESOME!
IF you did not ever meet them……………need I say more….
