What social media platform do you spend probably the most time on for enterprise networking? What methods do you utilize to have interaction your viewers and develop your online business?

I don’t actually consider what I do as ‘enterprise networking’. I desire to think about it as connection – after I do a video or write one thing I’m aiming to attach with one particular person. I consider ONE particular particular person and write or communicate for them.

Over time that method has grown to 100, then 1000 then over 10,000 individuals on my electronic mail checklist and instagram. After I did a TEDx Speak I did it for ‘previous me’, the model of me who wanted to listen to it. It has been seen half one million occasions so I assume there have been fairly a number of ‘previous mes’ on the market.
