Do you know what your sphere of influence is? How to define it and how it can impact your life? In today’s Super Charge Sunday, Ellen Contreras – The Treasure Coast Connector – highlights the importance of understanding your sphere of influence. As a business development professional and radio host, Ellen’s goal is to help people to grow in their business. She provides access to resources, such as outsourced services, and forming meaningful connections.
Ellen shared about the increasing necessity of forming alliances and collaboration in light of the fact that people are starting businesses at a higher rate than ever before. New entrepreneurs need to shift their mindset from employee to entrepreneur. Part of that mindset shift is being able to step out of the proverbial comfort zone and to nurture the concept of having multiple streams of income. The key is to know what you can offer and what you can refer to others. Create a win-win situation for the people that you are connected to and how you can bring business to each other. Building a sphere of influence involves people getting to know you.
Four main areas where your sphere of influence reside:
2. Organize a Mini Event – Create and curate a group of about three or four people who you think should get to know each and why.
3. Become a Board Member – Join the board of a non-profit organization or civic association in which you have interest and are passionate about
4. Social media and Facebook Groups and LinkedIn
