Welcome to The MapleMoney Show, the podcast that helps Canadians improve their personal finances to create lasting financial freedom. I’m your host, Tom Drake, the founder of MapleMoney, where I’ve been writing about all things related to personal finance since 2009.
I’ve got a special episode for you this week. My guests, Miranda Marquit & Kyle Prevost, have appeared on the MapleMoney Show before. In fact, we previously co-hosted another podcast together, called The Money Mastermind Show.
In a reunion of sorts, I had an opportunity to interview Miranda and Kyle live from FinCon, in late September. In this episode, we discuss the power of networking for your career and business.
Kyle describes what he calls the “semi-immediate reach out”, and explains how to use it to reinforce the connections you make at conferences such as FinCon.
Miranda explains what it’s like to be an introvert in a fast-paced conference environment, and shares some tips that have made it easier for her. Hint: it’s ok to pace yourself.
We discuss the importance of reading a person’s body language, and why, before leaning in for a hug, you’re better off using a more conservative approach when meeting someone for the first time.
