Building relationships is not about selling someone your product or service. Is it possible to network without overpowering others with a sale? How can you build a genuine network based on trust and reliability?
Jevonya Allen believes in the power of a genuine smile. Whether you’re connecting in-person or virtually, Jevonya guides clients to be comfortable in a group through positivity and open-networking — meaning you’re not forced to work with anyone. Developing authentic relationships is the first and most important step (business will come later).
In this episode of Access To Anyone, Michael Roderick sits down with Jevonya Allen, Creator and Chief Visionary Officer of Twisted Networking, to talk about opportunities through networking. Jevonya shares developing your mindset for growth, an open-network philosophy, and conversations to target problems.
