here is a good article on Entrepreneur.com about using a sales mind on your business.
Helping young people to be productive in their efforts to find a job/career
Today I am taking a young college graduate to some networking events and explaining that 75% of jobs are found through various types of networking activity.
Graduated top of the class from the University of Cincinnati
My next post will tell you more about Nissa P. who graduated top of the class from the University of Cincinnati. She is energetic, friendly and outgoing, and most importantly teachable and a hard worker. I would like YOU to invite her to a networking event that you participate in just to get to know her and help her with this new adventure of business networking. Nissa has been my daughter’s best friend for many years and Patty and I consider her our “second daughter.”
Can you help me to help her?
If you have an event to invite her to, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will pass it along to her, or perhaps bring her to your event (as you know I visit many networking events and review them here on this blog). For some of my lady readers, I would love to have you invite her and take her to one or two of the events you attend (help her to learn to network effectively and give her your perspective on job hunting through networking. Share her with the people you know and spread the word about a good prospective employee).
I would also like someone to perhaps provide her with some business cards to use at these events. She is one to build on her strengths and pull her own way, certainly not a OWS type who want everything given to them through government programs, through interference by government in the free enterprise system, misguided as it is. I want to reward this. She lives here in the Dayton area.
Here is a cropped photo of Nissa.
I thought you would find this article interesting if you are considering running a daily deal of some kind for your buisness.
