Networking with other business professionals is often a key way to open up new doors and opportunities. This can usually be done by attending events or even apps dedicated to matching people in the same industry. One thing that got me thinking though is how for many people they simply seek to find others that are exactly like them. For example, if you are a public relations professional then imagine you just connecting with other public relations people. Wouldn’t it make more sense to find people outside of your profession?
For example, I would imagine in this case it would benefit the person to meet people outside of their line of work say an artist or chef. Obviously they do different things but technically those types of people could need the person’s service too where it could open new doors for them. They wouldn’t be able to meet these people though if they didn’t venture out of their immediate professional social circle.
It’s almost like saying if you are trying to enjoy different hobbies to meet different types of people outside of your norm then a good way to do that is try different things that you have never done before. I think networking is the same thing in many ways. Who knows too as it may increase the odds where people who lack skills in specific areas can find their perfect partners this way too.
