There are young coaches around the globe who work with me in my mentoring program: Elite Coach Mentoring.
After teaching them the basics keys to networking and the reason they need to network, I talk about finding their personal Babe Ruth.
Babe Ruth is a person who knows you and trusts you. They are in your industry so they know what type of jobs fit you. This one relationship can be the difference maker to you in your career.
I tell them if they can have ONE Babe Ruth on their side, they will bypass hundreds of resumes, calls, and busywork that comes with the job search.
With one call a Babe Ruth can get you in the top three in an open job,
help get you an interview, alert you to new jobs that are opening.
Networking is not collecting business cards and creating hundreds of
surface relationships. It’s spending your time finding and building
deep relationships with a person that just may your next Babe Ruth!
