When it comes to business, having fun is something that’s almost never talked about–it’s almost like people think fun and business are two completely unrelated, and mutually exclusive things. However, I don’t share that opinion at all. I definitely think it’s important to have fun in business; in fact, over time I’ve learned that having fun is something businesses and networking groups alike need to do in order to truly enjoy lasting success.
In this video, I talk about how important it is to keep the “fun” in the fundamentals. To sum it up, if you don’t have fun, it’s easy to lose track of why you are where you are and why you’re doing what you’re doing–it’s easy to lose your excitement. Once you lose your excitement for something, your passion for it is gone and it’s very hard to be successful at anything if you’re not passionate about it. This is why it’s so important to have a good time in whatever you’re doing–business, networking, or otherwise.
After watching the video, please share some of the ways you (when it comes to your business and/or networking) or your networking group (when it comes to your networking meetings) keep the fun in the fundamentals. In the spirit of fun, I’ll review all the comments next Friday (3/29) and I’ll send a surprise gift to the ten people whose tactics for keeping the fun in the fundamentals were the most striking, impressive, and creative. Thanks and I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
