Take the WORK out of Networking

Take the WORK out of Networking

As creative professionals, there may be no single more important thing to our business than to properly network. It’s how we find clients, collaborators as well as fellow designers we can look to as friends.

This week we were lucky enough to be joined by top rated HOW Design Live speaker Terri Trespicio, who gives us the rundown on how we can most effectively network. She offers some truly amazing tips and mindsets that will help you let your guard down and get the most out of every single interaction.

We also tackle a new listener question about transitioning casual clients into more formal business relationships.

Really great episode, thanks Terri. That was some of the best social and networking advice around, but what was especially great was the down-to-earth way in which it was communicated.

Wow. This was an excellent episode! Terri’s input about changing your outlook on network meetings, and even her approach on introducing yourself to other guests, I found to be very eye-opening. Although I can speak in front of a room, I cannot for the life of me walk up to a stranger and start a convo! Terri’s advice was great! And she’s fun to listen to too! I especially enjoyed all of your responses to the listener question. I’m going thru this situation at this very moment, preparing to meet with a long time client to discuss (in front of their board members) my rate and design fees, and of course what my process entails. I’ve been designing the theme design for this annual festival for the past 8 years now, for free as a donation to the community, but they offered to pay this year and frankly I can’t do it for free anymore (designing is my full time gig now). Anyhow, what I heard on your show tonight helped affirm my approach, and gave me some tips on how to stand confident in my work and the value of it. So, thank you! Been learning a lot from you guys on each episode I listen to… Keep it going! Take care – JP
