IF you follow me on Instragram you must have seen on my insta story that I was interviewed on NTA. How did it happen? What did I talk about? Will answer these questions shortly.
On that very good Saturday afternoon I got a message from Queen. ” Hey dear, how are you doing? Been following you for a while now and i love what you do, would you mind being our guest on NTA Today’s Style?”.
I immediately opened the message with all excitement and typed YES!!! Without even knowing what it entails. Mind you this is from somebody i haven’t had a real conversation with for a while.
Queen is a model but on that day she wasn’t modelling. She came to support her model friends, I took some pictures of her and we later exchange WhatsApp number for the purpose of sending the pictures.
Let’s talk about the benefit of networking at events! The benefits of networking are critical to your personal growth and brand development.
It’s natural that networking will result in opportunities. The thing you will not know is when or how they will materialise. Whether it’s a referral, offer partnership or request for your service or product, it is important to be ready to seize opportunities when they come along.
Remember you are not just gaining exposure to the people in the room, you are building connections with their network too. If someone they know has a need that matches your business, if you have made an impression, you will likely get a referral.
like I said, we haven’t had any proper conversation after I sent the pictures, but then I never knew she has been following up with my activities and when there was I need for a blogger I was the first on her list.
NTA Today’s Style.
In life opportunities can come from anywhere, Just keep doing You! you might not be getting the feedback or benefits you expect but you will be surprised it knock at your door from the least expected source.
I’ve always wanted to do this, I mentioned it in a post HERE. And an opportunity to talk about what I love doing came to me when I least expected.
During the Interview I talked about the struggle of blogging in Nigeria especially getting a good location to take pictures without being interrupted by the security personnels.
Also talked about the need to promote Made in Nigeria product By supporting small start up business.
If a friend of yours is selling a product for 1000 and another big brand outside Nigeria is selling same product for 10,000 and you choose to buy from the big brand, you are not helping the country and at the same time you are not helping your friend grow.
Lastly Don’t quit something you love because you aren’t number one. Keep practicing, It’s okay to gradually grow and get better. Just please don’t ever quit.
Even when you’re laying in bed at night thinking there is no way you could possibly meet the standard of whatever is important in your life… KEEP GOING!.
