When It Comes to Success in Life and Business...

It's About Your Relationships!

We all have heard the saying, "it's not what you know, but who you know". And let's be honest the relationships we make are critically important to our personally lives, but most assuredly our professional lives. But what do you do when you find it difficult to create new relationships? And what is more how can you create relationships that truly make a difference? True you could join a meetup group, go to a networking event, but typically these events are forced impersonal and loud, and more often than not you can feel very alone. What is one to do?

Well in this episode of A New Direction Nick Gray joins us to talk about how to create "The 2 Hour Cocktail Party". In this episode Nick coaches us on how to create an effective, intimate, fun party that truly builds real relationhips that translate into tremendous benefits for you personally and professionally. No matter what your age these small gatherings create huge dividends! You don't want to miss this could be career changing and life changing!

Nick Gray's book, "The 2-Hour Cocktail Party: How to Build Big Relationships with Small Gatherings" is absolutely fantastic!  The more I read it the more I kept saying, "I should do this".  By the end of the book, I was saying, "I need to do this".  After thinking about it, I put it on my calendar, and I am doing this!  This book takes the pressure off of doing a long-drawn-out party.  It takes the awkwardness out of those "networking" events.  It puts you in the position where you are building real relationships that grow deeper that will positively impact you personally and professionally.  Charlie "Tremendous" Jones is correct in saying, “Five years from today, you will be the same person that you are today, except for the books your read and the people you meet." Nick Gray will get you on the way to change, because you will be doing both.
