Hello everyone! I am relatively new around here. I am excited about this network and hope to learn much here. I have experience in public speaking in my "day" job and outwardly it appears that I am a social person. Inwardly I have a difficult time and have to put on a face at times. I have started a new home business. I started it to help me get out and meet new people and possibly some new friends mainly. I love the products and my company, but I find it difficult to discuss my new business and share the amazing opportunities it has to offer. Part of me feels that others see me as having an agenda. Any words of wisdom??

Hello SueLynn:

Congratulations are starting your own business.

The best advice I can give is to not discuss your new business or it's amazing opportunities until asked. This is very easy to do. Ask questions about the other person instead of talking about yourself. Sooner or later they will ask "and what do you do?". This is your opportunity to explain. But, only give them a little bit and then ask them another question. It is all about building relationships and it is sad, but true, people are more interested in themselves than they are you. Sooner or later though, they will want to know more about you as they will see you as a person who is interested in them.

Also, join networks. I am sure there are womens networks (look up ewomen's network for your area, they are great) and business networks in your area. Chamber of commerces are great too. Surround yourself with like minded business people and it will start to come naturally.

Good luck.
