This time we tried in the studio something entirely new: Instead of one special guest, we had SIX! Six entrepreneurs and business owners: Jan Rezek, Muna Shakour, Maria Voss, Kotryna Kurt, Emilie Wren and Renee Vidor, were debunking myths about the social life of an entrepreneur. If you are considering starting your own business, you should definitely listen to this show! Among others we discussed: Do entrepreneurs really work averagely 80+ hours per week? Is your social life officially over once you start your own business? And do people change the way they talk to you once you’ve become an entrepreneur?
In Part 2 of “How to become a better networker using LinkedIn Local” we have discussed: How did Cathy manage to attract guests from Copenhagen and even from Ireland (!!!) to visit her LinkedIn Local events? What “Landing like a butterfly” and “dancing Cha-Cha” has to do with people remembering you for the right reasons? Why it may be better to focus on who you are than on what you do? What “networking games” is Cathy using at her events in order to facilitate a better experience for participants? And Many More!
Cathy Perez is not only a natural-born networker and an event organizer but also a woman with a purpose and a worthwhile mission at heart: To connect and to inspire people. Born and raised in Philippines, with 8-years experience of living in China (where she managed to learn how to order a taxi and make groceries’ shopping… in Chinese!), a couple of years ago, Cathy moved to Denmark for her now-husband. In Scandinavia she has experienced a cultural shock - living all her life in huge cities she has found herself in a small Danish town where she wasn’t initially able to build any connections. When after some time, Cathy and her husband moved to Arhus, she has decided to do something about it and OH, SHE DID! Inspired by a post about LinkedIn Local in Australia, together with Kotryna Kurt they have decided to organize the very first meeting of this kind in Arhus and… the rest is history!
