The Art of Networking
Networking allows you access to opportunities that you might not be able to have on your own. Online networking allows you opportunities from all over the world without leaving the comfort of your own home. Also, when you make friends in your network it can give you the potential to provide you tips and tools on how you can improve professionally. Your network can provide you with job leads, reference letters, job search advice, and insight into new fields. Today on the Crushing Chaos Podcast Victoria Marshman discusses the art of networking, and how to use it effectively to benefit your career.

Today on the Crushing Chaos Podcast Victoria Marshman discusses tools to help you with your online networking. City Moguls originated from attending network events that seemed lackluster and awkward. Victoria Marshman states, “We didn’t feel that there was enough to celebrate these incredible people that are the foundation of our country. So, we wanted to do our part and celebrate them. “Ultimately it’s a key thing for entrepreneurs to network because it builds friendships with individuals with similar goals. Those friends that can provide tips and tools of the trade to further your career. It is the key to holding yourself accountable which also can be useful if you decide to have a partnership or decide to collaborate. She states about her business partner, “we call it a marriage because it’s a commitment to each other.” Constant communication with each other lets us realize their strengths so they can build on each other’s successes. It’s important to realize you are not always good at everything because it will also make you figure out what you bring to the table.
