Getting On The List

Latest posts by Christine Haskell (see all)

I just attended an event where Edie Hilliard gave a short talk on her experience in the radio industry. We all want to be “on the list.” It almost doesn’t matter which one—it could be anything from a VIP list for an event to an approved vendor or being the go-to guy. A certain amount of luck is always in play, but I believe that when you are educated and prepared, opportunities arise. If you approach life inquisitive like a student, teachers come.

I’ve never been one for top ten lists, and these ideas sound really simple…but they may help you branch out a little more than what you are doing today –

  • Mentor: inside and outside of your business
  • Network: genuinely help others; and it doesn’t matter what business you or they are in
  • Volunteer: take on projects that demonstrate your leadership to others
  • Join a group that matches your interests
  • Attend neighborhood councils, get active in your community
  • Join a book club
  • Read your local newspaper, and get inspired to get involved in your community

… if all those fail, get a dog  you can even connect with people at the local dog park.

 

What activities have you participated in that have helped you Do Well By Doing Good?
