Luck Circles: Networking with a Purpose

People get most of their lucky breaks in life through “the strength of weak ties” – i.e., through casual acquaintances and people they don’t know very well. The reason for this is that we travel in the same circles as our good friends. They know most of the same people, the same opportunities, and the same resources as we do. But when we stumble across a relative stranger, they travel in completely different circles. They are exposed to different resources, ideas, and people than we are. They might be able to connect us with resources and people that we would have never otherwise encountered.

 

When you give to other people, chances are they will give back. Reciprocity is one of the strongest forms of human influence. If you want someone to help you, the best way is to help them first.

 

Join us on January 20 to generate a series of lucky breaks. You will be paired with different groups of girlbosses. Each of you will state a personal or professional goal that you have. The other members of your group will suggest connections and resources that will help you fulfill your request. It is then up to you to follow up in the coming days and weeks.
