I’ll keep this short, sweet and to the point.
The most effective way to build your network, karma and goodwill is literally just to help others without expecting anything in return. The more you give, the more you get.
That’s true CIRCULARITY.
So I have a challenge for each and every one of you.
Make it a habit of being unexpectedly helpful for folks in your sector/ecosystem. Literally just do random acts of helpfulness. Schedule 10-15 mins of it per week. It doesn’t take much and the results can be amazing.
Especially when it’s mostly intros.
- So offer to make opt-in intros to your investors, clients and partners.
- Help fellow founders promote their articles or job posts.
- Send potentially relevant deals to VCs in your network.
- Connect the dots between relevant climate solutions, service providers and corporates who could benefit from knowing each other…
Just spend 15 mins a week being a connector and helper.
It feels good, it does good (driving major climate impact if things work out) and it can lead to good things for you and your business – because karma always comes back.
Want a hack to make things even easier? Check out our Climate Solutions database and look for companies in your sector or space you think you could be helpful to.
Reach out, make a couple intros here and there and I guarantee it will come back in spades.
And we’re all on Team Planet, right?
That’s core to our Climate Techies Membership – giving more than you get and helping each other move the world forward. If you want to join a truly collaborative community of climate champions helping each other kick butt and drive impact, consider applying today.
So, have you made 3-5 helpful intros and connections today? If not, what are you waiting for?
Because everyone wins when everyone is winning!
