Networking guru, DeShondra Brown, founder of enRich Solo, has suggested the need to have SMART goals for networking. She made this declaration last night on Monday Motivation with Bukola during a Live broadcast on Google Hangouts on Air. According to Brown, 80 per cent of job opportunities are secured through network while only 20 per cent are secured through advertisements.
Brown emphasized the need to build specific, measurable and attainable networking goals to be able to take advantage of various opportunities in our career, professional, and personal life. She noted that we need to building relationships that offers mutual benefits. In going into new relationships, the networking guru encouraged us to have something to offer in other to benefit from the relationships that we are going into. She frowns against just taking from relationships rather than giving and taking.
She also cautioned against taking a “no” response negatively. Rather, she encouraged us to accept a “no” response in a positive feedback that could result in our heart desire in the future. Sharing her personal experience, the double bachelor’s degree holder stated that she was recently hired as an adjunct professor at the same university where she had been previously rejected.

According to Brown, “the course to help you to Review, Reveal and Revive your Networking skills.” She added, “A key component to obtaining visions and goals is through building lucrative relationships and this course will help you to do just that once you have completed the course.”
