“I appreciate you reaching out.“
If you ever doubt that reaching out – phone calls, emails, texts, video messages – are worthwhile, remember the quote above.
It came from one of my connections, prompted by me checking in with her. Simply inquiring – what’s going on, what are you up to, how can I be helping your efforts?
Connectors are interested and curious – they are not concerned with being interesting or the most fascinating person in the room with the best story to share. They’re story collectors, really. Interested in others in order to learn how they can serve.
Connectors appreciate, like the above statement confirms.
When in doubt: reach out. Connect.
