Mary Kay Ash Did It Best... (The Networking Factor)
"The Networking Factor, Everyone is important!" This slogan reminds me of another personal credo by one of the country's greatest motivators... Zig Ziglar says, "You can have everything in life you want if you help enough people to get what they want!" I'm sure Mary Kay Ash shared the stage and/or conversations with Zig Ziglar. What was her magic formula?
Everyone is important! That's it, you ask... yes, that's it! Networking is an over-used word in today's society. However, everyone is important is the foundation of understanding people.
We should all be aware of the disadvantage of labeling people based on titles. (Please read, "What I Do Is Not Who I Am" at www.EzineArticles.com)
Also, be careful about introducing who you are and making a big deal of your title. In this changing economy, how many high level executives have you seen on top until the company folded and they became unemployed? Now I am sure the president, ceo, coo, and vice president were taken good care of with severance packages from TWA (TRANS WORLD AIRLINES), but whatever happened to all the high-paying important executives of that airline? Hmmm!
If what you do is the validation of whom you are, what happens when you no longer do it?
Mary Kay Ash was one of the richest women in the world. At the time of her death, she had consultants in 30 countries. One of the secrets to her success was that see imagined that everyone she met was wearing a sign that read, "Make me feel important," and she did just that!
Again, you ask, was that all? That my friend is the foundation of connecting with people on a long-term basis.
Real power will "ALWAYS" empower!
The Networking Factor, everyone is important!
p.s. Just in case, you asked, "Is this woman a representative of Mary Kay Cosmetics?" My answer, no I am not, is this article a little bias? Perhaps!
