I have to admit that writing on a topic like network and relationship building feels a bit silly because it inherently implies some sort of expertise on behalf of the author. To clarify upfront- we are not experts. Connected? Yes. Well-liked in our industry? Hopefully. Experts? No. We’ll leave that to the likes of great marketing minds like Seth Godin and Jeffrey Gitomer.
But real life is all we really know. Six years in business and over 200 weddings later, we’ve had the fortune of meeting some incredible partners in our industry—both here in Denver and around the country. In both workshop and mentoring settings, the same conversation surfaces. How did we do it and how can others do the same for themselves?
