When to say it… Befriend

When to say it… Befriend; Learn to be seen, and befriend people. They will more likely talk with you before you talk with them. Get to shows, or events and just mingle with people. Get to know the owners and never talk business with them. Just talk with them.

Part of TAC is getting out there to people. I have a nice rule about “Going out gets you in front of possibilities”. Every time I’ve gone out, even if just for food, I’ve met someone. You never know who they are or who they know. You just have to bring opportunity to yourself all time. And one of those opportunities comes from hanging out around venues or places of interested in your particular field of choice. That is why you should plan out a weekly itinerary for what’s going on out there.

When people see you, their brains take over and memorize who you are. Maybe not your name, but your face. I normally go to places in the same outfit. Which is usually my stage outfit for comedy, dress clothes for acting, and my darker look for music. Why? Because they can recall a familiar memory of you before trying to figure out who you are. Everything is a weapon in my arsenal of making something happen. Have skills, know your skills and work your skills. TAC being one of them.

So now you are showing up to these establishments on a regular bases. As you do this, utilize your three TAC skills. How to say it, When to say it, and Why to say it… Network among these people. The owners, patrons, guests, employees and even the other talent there. This strategy will help you build a friendship with anyone and everyone working there. That’s the point, is to build relationships with people so that you can build solid friendships. The more they see you, the more it shows you care about what is going on in their lives, their company.

In closing, remember to not over work yourself, always set up a schedule. As long as you see these people once a month you are good to go. But if you show up to their place and they are not there, you are out of luck. That time doesn’t count. So make sure you know their schedule, and make it yours.
