Championship Networking Tip – The Way You Do Anything Is The Way You Do Everything

Hi! I’m Christie Philips, actor, karate instructor, and female world grappling champion.

In the entertainment industry, it’s often “who we know” as well as “what we know.” Networking skills should help. What is networking? Eric Shaw defines networking as “The interaction of an extended group of people with similar interests or concerns who remain in contact for mutual assistance and/or support.” In other words, exchange information and get answers from your peers and would-be peers.

In this issue’s video article, we explore Eric’s first official networking tip:
The Way You Do Anything Is The Way You Do Everything. Let’s make a commitment to make networking our way of life. After all, success in the entertainment business, as well as success in life, is all about relationships.

Half of life is showing up. Know where you want to go. Have purpose and direction.

In our next issue of Championship networking, Eric Shaw reminds us that success begins with respect!
