Do you have your own Name Badge?

Dave Clarke's Business Networking Nugget #1

Have the tools to network with you at all times.These include an informative name badge, business cards, literature about your business, and a pocket-sized business card file or PDA with the contact details of other professionals whom you can refer.
Whilst you may disagree about the need for literature, professional looking name badges are inexpensive and money well spent. You might want to find someone who can make you a metal badge that attaches to your clothes with a magnet rather than a pin. Big letters, not too big, nice colour, maybe even your company logo.
And then, you are prepared for any meeting.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who has turned up to a meeting where some (or all!) of the following apply;
  • Name spelt wrong
  • Wrong Company
  • Wrong Business Category
  • Barely legible hand written stickers that don't really stick

Do this and you will often be the only one with a professional looking badge, but will it make a difference?Try it, you will be suprised that it can be very thing that starts that all important conversation......

Doing Small Business In A Smarter Way

Small business owners face some of the toughest challenges on the planet. Like many of the top performers in various works, small business owners need executive coaches to help them polish their game.

Unfortunately, many small business owners are not aware of coaching and the value it offers. For others there is the fear that the cost of coaching will be more than they can afford. Business Rebirth is about making a place where you can get information to help you better understand coaching and get some help in a financially feasible manner.

As a small business coach, I am constantly searching for ideas that can help my clients. Business Rebirth will be a place to share some of my best findings with my virtual clients. We will discuss ideas on this blog and will flesh them out on the main web site www.businessrebirth.com. That site only has a place holder for the moment and will be constructed soon. In the mean time, share with me your questions about your biggest challenges as a small business owner. I will respond to those questions that have the widest appeal. Given time, I will also respond to you by private e-mail. You can e-mail me at shallie@businessrebirth.com.

See you soon!
