The easiest way and my absolute favorite way to create MASSIVE value for your network is by connecting people to each other.
Yup, sounds soooo basic.
So basic in fact, you’re probably like “duh“.
… but like with anything else, building the mindset of being someone whose focused on connecting people is a habit and skill to develop.
It’s super easy to connect people and the benefits are insane.
First and foremost, when you connect people your network learns to help each other and you look like a rockstar because you’re at the center of it all.

You probably hang around the same type of people as yourself, so by connecting people in your community to each other, you’re infinitely magnifying your own impact.
Not to mention, it trains your network to give referrals.

When you go to ask for a referral, they realize it’s the norm of the relationship and are way more likely to give it.
In the name of efficiency, you connect with two people at the same time so you’re doubling the number of people you can keep in touch with while using half the effort.
When they do connect, the first thing they have in common is you… So what do you think they’re going to talk about first?
They’re going to talk about you AND how awesome you are.
Andddd can we talk about the fact that people will actually open and answer your emails because you’re CONSTANTLY creating value for them.
Think about it this way…
One connection can literally change someone’s life AND it takes you less than 5 minutes to make the connection.

I don’t think there’s a better way to create such a massive impact while still being efficient with your time and energy.
People like to associate with movers and shakers, so the more connecting you do, the more credibility you gain.
Plus, connecting people shows people that you actually care… and when you care, they care too.
That teeny tiny introduction can literally change your entire experience with your community.
Now that you’re sold on the concept of connecting, how do you actually do it?
