Michelle Wiley’s Vital Tips About Networking

Michelle Wiley gave networking tips

What’s the difference between a business lead and a referral? What happens at a Leads Luncheon? What’s an elevator speech?

Michelle Wiley–Membership Director of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce–appeared as my guest in “The Communication Corner” to comment on these questions. This interview program airs Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. ET on WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau,” with a Thursday morning replay at 6:00 a.m.

NOTE: In visiting WBCX, Michelle was returning to familiar territory. As a broadcast major at Brenau University, she had co-hosted a lively show, “Morning Buzz.”

In addition to answering the questions mentioned above, Michelle discussed:
*Whether cold calling still brings results
*Using the Social Media to promote your business
*Reasonable expectations for a Leads Luncheon participant
*Building relationships before you ask for business
*Best books about networking
*Describing your business in 60 seconds or less
*How one business professional used a prospect’s Facebook information creatively

Listen to Michelle’s interview to improve your networking skills, and to increase opportunities for having others promote your business actively.

“Search Angel” Susan Stevenson Reunites Families

Have you ever talked with a “Search Angel”? Today I did that for the first time, interviewing Susan Stevenson of Lawrenceville, GA on “The Communication Corner,” my weekly interview program with WBCX, 89.1 FM, “The Voice of Brenau University.” Search Angel means that she helps reunite families who became separated through the adoption process. She offers these services as a volunteer, not a paid professional.

Amazingly, Susan has helped hundreds of families come face to face with parents, children, brothers, sisters, and other relatives, some of whom they haven’t seen for decades. Susan’s searches have been as brief as two days, yet as extensive as five years.

Among the topics you will hear us discuss:
*What motivated Susan to become a Search Angel
*The most dramatic, memorable searches she conducted
*How a family should prepare emotionally for a scheduled reunion
*A registry for those who want to be found and those who are looking
*Medical advantages of finding your birth parents
*The meaning of “Chapter One” in your life
*Shedding tears with a family in a Denny’s restaurant
