“Ten times out of ten, if you are able to communicate with peers in your industry you’re going to get opportunities that you don’t have otherwise.” — Ren Jones
Building a Network of Relationships
A good first step in collaboration is to find people who produce content that you like. There are too many clients out there for you to work with by yourself, but you can serve more people by connecting and sharing ideas with other trainers. Through a simple practice of reaching out, you can easily build meaningful relationships over time, and these connections will push your boundaries and expand your opportunities.
Generosity and Its Benefits
There is a lot to be said about how far you can get through serving and offering help to others. A generous attitude is always possible, so when you find your people it can be very easy to create a nurturing and supportive environment. We also recommend continuously thinking about how you can further extend these branches and broaden your horizons even more. So don’t be afraid to reach out to those people you have identified that you like and respect.
Celebrating Others and Getting in on the Action
If you want a booming business, you want to be close to the action, and where the people in your field are located. This means getting involved in groups, networks, and events. By pooling ideas with others you also improve your chances and output, and there are loads of ways to do this in real life and on social media. Don’t forget to celebrate your colleagues, tell someone they are awesome today!
