Kevin Willett explains how you simply don’t know what the future holds for you and your business.
I had an interesting coffee meeting last week with a guy who has some business interests in CT, MA and NH. Right now I am not hosting any networking events in the towns that he does business in, and he is not attending any networking events in the towns I host in, but we both wanted to meet because we know that eventually we will expand our reach into each other’s areas. We each had a vision of where we wanted to be.
A mistake I see people make all the time is they lack vision. They think about what they are doing today and don’t consider the future. When I started New England B2B Networking Group, I never imagined that I would host 22 events monthly. Honestly there were a number of people I didn’t meet with because I said I am never going to host events in their town, so there is no need to meet with them. That was a big mistake and it slowed down my growth some. Please don’t focus on just what you are doing today. Make time to meet with people that might not fit into your plans today, because you simply don’t know what the future holds for you and your business.
