Who Is Leo Petrik?
Back in early 1977, when I was almost 22 (yes I am that old), I stumbled upon this thing called ‘networking’. I didn’t know it at the time, but that moment changed my life. I know that statements like that belong on those cheesy, ‘Buy my $12,000 training program’ sites (don’t worry I’m not selling anything more than a membership course), but it is actually true.
Within a few months of attending these business get-togethers, I was starting to build my personal confidence (I was an extremely shy person… what the heck was I doing in sales), but it was all impacting positively on my work; I was hooked. I learned so much from the experience that ‘networking’… connecting and communicating with business people became a passion.
Over the years as I read articles, books, watched and studied great connectors and relationship builder’s, my own personal skills began to grow (boy, I wish I had had a mentor back then, it would have saved a lot of time).
Unfortunately, I discovered that most people didn’t share the same passion for learning as I had, and although they attended numerous business functions the results they were achieving were very poor.
So what started out as a hobby became a lifestyle choice. I developed a passion for helping others become better connectors, communicators and relationship builder’s, so that they could also have the successes that I was enjoying.
