Last week we discussed being an ‘outside cat’ with Town Planner Jessica Reynolds.

For those of you who’ve already made the change from employee to business owner, you know it comes with a fair share of challenges along with the rewards. The good news is that there are plenty of ways to make those challenges smaller.

After six years in the town planning business, Jessica believes that there’s one thing that can make or break your success – your network.

Jessica knows that she wouldn’t be where she is today if it wasn’t for her network. When people know how good you are, there are no issues finding A-grade clients, because your network does it with you.

I absolutely agree that your network is essential to any endeavour. With that said, you might’ve heard the popular saying:

“Your network is your net worth.”

Whether you want to be a business owner or property investor, you should start connecting with the right people straight away. Start a LinkedIn profile and socialise with people you want to do business with.

Now, as you grow your network, there’s one question you want to keep in mind – what do you want to be known for? What can you do to provide value to your network in return? Growing a network is all about creating win-win scenarios. You want to be known as someone who has value to offer.

Surround yourself with the right people and your chances of success will skyrocket.

The best thing is you can start doing that right now. Look for me on LinkedIn, or if you’d like to discuss the start of your property journey and start building that network, why not book a free discovery session?

Whether you ultimately decide to proceed on your own or not, this strategy session is one investment that you shouldn’t question.
