Not many sleeps now!
As we head into the silly season we are also heading into the “have fun and surprisingly do great business networking” season as well.
In this week’s quick episode I share with you 1 simple sentence you can use that is guaranteed to get the conversation moving in the direction you want and you know what?
It works magic at social gatherings, networking events and around the table on Christmas day when you are sitting next to the nephew / sister-in-law / boyfriend-of-second-cousin-on-your-step-mothers-first-husbands-side…. who you haven’t seen for 12 months.
I’d love to hear your thoughts and watch to the end where I ask YOU the same question and would love you to share the answer with us all below.

Hello and welcome! Janet Beckers here, I’ve got a really short episode for you this week in Romance Your Tribe Radio because you know what? You get parties to go to. It’s just getting really really close to the silly season which is catching up with people having fun but also a surprisingly good networking time of the year. Because you very likely may be either going to different get-togethers that may be know with people who are in your business or are around your business and also, surprisingly, social events that can turn into being wonderful opportunities to end up growing your business.
So what me share with you is: How one sentence, phrase, that you can be saying to people. A question that you can be asking them that is guaranteed to really make the conversations that you have so much more rewarding and so much more powerful.
And this is whether it’s going to be sitting around the Christmas table with the cousin twice removed that you only see once or twice a year and you really don’t know much about them. You haven’t really been a huge part of their life. Or it might be at a dinner party or a social event that you go to. And you know, it could be used in that occasion as well. So this is the universal question that you can be using for Christmas time conversations.
In fact, you can be using it all-year round but it is particularly good at this time of year.
So, you’re ready?
When you’re in any kind of social event like this especially this time of the year. A lot of times you can be finding you going over the same information. You know, you’ll get you’ll be really just sort of going through a lot of small talk. I like Tt kind of cut to the chase and really start talking about things that matter. Now here is, lesson number one is you know what, people want to talk about themselves even though, you know, they may be interested in you really. People love talking about themselves and that’s quite cool. So what you want to do is let’s turn it very specifically over to them and this is the question to ask: “Tell me what is one thing, the one thing, that you’re most proud of from this year?”.
You know what. It is amazing.
The kind of answers that you get from that when I have asked this question of people who I see on a really really regular basis. It never ceases to amaze me that they come out and tell me something that I knew absolutely nothing about. Because it may not necessarily be something that is discussed in the situation where I normally see them. So really. You know it’s a really great insight people even more so I love doing this.
We did this last year we had Christmas at our home and we invited, you know, lots of family and there were friends as well that came along. And we did this going around the table. There were quite a lot of people there was a really long table. So it took a little bit of time but you know what? People were getting excited waiting for their turn to come up. And what we learnt about each person was really really interesting because, you know, I got to hear some great things about my nieces. And some other things about my nephew nephew and things about our grandparents. The things that they considered that they were most proud of really gives me great insight to them. So. There is a follow up question as well. So that there were already open up a great conversation without fails you might need to give people a little bit of a prompt.
So the next question that follows from that is: “So what’s the one thing that you are most looking forward to next year?”.
And this is a really powerful question because you know sometimes people will tell you something around a business school or a career goal or sometimes they’ll tell you about a fitness goal. Or they might tell you about a hobby. Or something to do. Travel. Something that you may not have even realized was going to be big for them. Now. Whether this is in the family or whether this is business, whichever way it is to be able to really help people to celebrate the things that they’re really proud of and those things that they’re looking forward to is: number one it’s just great to be part of that. And if this is around business when it’s the things that they’re looking forward to, it may very well be things that you can help them with or that you know somebody that you can connect them with that is going to be able to help them. And that is all around growing your business and growing relationships.
So I really want to hear from you. So come and share with me over here on the on the on where we’ve got the show notes over on the website is I’d love for your show down below. Number one what is it that you were most proud of this year? And what is it that you are really looking forward to next year?
So. Let me start it. Let me start the ball rolling. So I will share with you from a business perspective the thing that I’m most proud of from this year. And I would say the thing that I’m most proud of this year is I haven’t really totally restructured the brand and the focus that we, of my business from being Wonderful Web Women, to being Romance Your Tribe.
And of course part of that was creating a whole new training program. From scratch. At what I know has got the best results for people that have been working through it. It’s really is the best program I have ever created. I am exceptionally proud of the Attract Your Tribe program. Really proud of that. And really proud of the results. It’s been getting for people so that’s me. That’s what I’m really proud about.
And what am I looking forward to next year? Well I’m really looking forward to knowing that now that I have tested this program and I’ve had people who have been going through it and they’ve been sharing with me step by step the results they’re getting, I’m really looking forward to next year to really ramping that up. Because I know I get results for people. So I’m really looking forward to focusing a lot next year on helping more people go through that program. And helping more people if they want more personal help to get them to that next level. I’m really looking forward to that.
So for me, creating that strong foundation this year and then building on it next year they are my number ones when it comes to what my most proud of. And my most looking forward to. So I’d love to hear from you now.
I’m just thinking my mind was going to all the other things I’m really excited about next year and really proud of this year because of course we’ll have far more than just our businesses aren’t we? We’re really also very much around, you know, our personal side. You know, what to do with our creativity and to do with our fitness and our health and and our relationships. And so I could share so much more of that with you. So we might do that. You know, continue the conversation over on social media. Over through on Facebook, if you’re connected with me there. just Talking about all these different things because there’s lots of things that I’m really, really proud of and very excited about next year. On a personal perspective as well.
Okay. So. Can’t wait to hear from you. I would really love to hear from you so if you can answer those two questions for me. What is one thing you are most proud of this year? And what’s the one thing you’re really looking forward to next year? And share them down below.
