Building a support network
Had a therapy session recently and realized I have not built a strong support network. I'd like to change that. I'd love for people to add their ideas in the comments
1. Attend events around interests
I really want to go to the Buddhist temple in my town for group meditation. I went to the rock and gem show, which was lame. I'm sure events are hit and miss.
2. 6 minute networking.
reach out to people I already know, but may not have talked to recently on a set schedule. This was covered in the Skip The Line book.
3. Actually be active on social media
I'm not, but I should be. Creating content instead of consuming attracts people of similar interests.
4. The parents of my kids friends
Probably good people to know
5. Create my own mastermind
I could probably do several. Plus the mastermind principle Napoleon Hill talks about would be a great power to harness.
6. Find events around causes I support
Just searched "autism events near me" on Google and found several. One is tomorrow and gets my kid into a pretty cool indoor theme park type thing for free.
7. Find volunteer opportunities around causes and things I support
Like minded people. Just another search away. I always like the people I meet when donating blood.
8. Civic organizations
Rotary meets every Wednesday. Lions club is another. What else? I guess I can go to a meeting for free before joining because I have no idea what they really do.
9. Go to dinner with other couples
good to make friends as a couple. Being married with kids leaves little time for other things, and is the main reason my support network is less than I'd like.
10. Host events
Just read The 2 Hour Cocktail Party book. Seems like a great way to meet people and build my network.
