This weekend I hosted the first ConnectorCon and was absolutely blown away. Any time there was time between panels, people were taking the time to meet one another and connect with each other, Panelists and attendess mixed and mingled, and the level of engagement was just awesome to watch. So now that the event is over, I wanted to point out some of the quotes that came out of the weekend that I consider important for all of us:
" There is no competition only specialization"
"You are the company you keep"
"Treat every situation as an opportunity"
"It's so valuable to hear the perspectives of people who are outside of your field"
"Be authentic in your interactions and the rest will follow"
"You have to be strategic AND thoughtful"
"Connectors help to open up other people's Reality Tunnels"
"Connectors are the future"
"Relationships take time to build. If you try to speed things up, you will be disappointed"
" Everyone is an investor. For some it's money, others time, some mentorship or advice, but everyone has the potential to invest in the people here today and create massive R.O.I."
I've hosted many events over the years, but this was one that really gave me pause. I watched so many people who had never met, connect on so many levels, it was really magical. If you missed it, no worries. You can be sure I'll be doing it again.
Till that time, I hope some of these quotes inspire you to make a connection today.
