Episode 175: The Art Of Coming Out & Active Networking – Mark E. Sackett

175_ShowImage_MarkESackettBefore you go knocking on the closet door, you might want to consider, NETWORKING. Yes, NETWORKING. In other words, finding some like type folks who’ve been down the road your about to embark upon, before you dive headlong into the life you’re meant to be living.

As crazy as it sounds, NETWORKING, is a key activity of success in your coming out journey. Finding an inner circle that gets you, your desires, and the outcomes you wish to experience in life. Doesn’t matter if you’re coming out to say your gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender, or if you’re laying it on the line at a networking event to say, “I’m stuck in my business and I can’t get up!” When you find your circle, your peeps, the ones who really get you, you can do anything!

My friend and networking guru Mark Sackett joins me today to share how networking, real networking and connecting can help you in your journey out of whatever closets you might find yourself in now and in the future.
