To Get Opportunities - You Have To Put Yourself Out There

With everything in life, we need to put ourselves out there in order to be presented with opportunities.

Putting yourself out there does many things; it gives you feedback and it plants seeds. Feedback comes when you make asks such as, “will you place an order”, etc. You plant seeds by becoming known to a contact, and start building a relationship.

Sometimes I see entrepreneurs get held up on putting themselves out there. They gravitate towards things that have less opportunity to present rejection. Yet, the shots on goal are what are going to both get you the feedback you need to improve but plant the seeds that can produce later.

Try to put yourself out there today. Reach out to some contacts you would like to do business with, someone you would like to mentor you, or just an old colleague.
