I was speaking with a new client recently and I inquired on how she found me. “I was given the name of three people and you were the only one that followed up.”
You may be so close to landing your next BIG juicy red-apple client and you don’t even realize it. You may be missing one essential (easy) step to help you stand out in your industry. Follow-up.
On today’s episode of my award-winning podcast, ‘She’s Got Moxie’, I’m sharing a replay of a teleclass I did earlier this year, “How to Create Masterful Connections That Generate High-Caliber, Profitable Referrals.”
Follow-up is something that anyone can do. It doesn’t matter how much (or how little) education you have, it doesn’t discriminate, and it levels the playing field.
Here’s another (deeper) reason I think people don’t follow-up: Fear of failure. “If I don’t follow-up, I’ll be spared the feeling of rejection.”
I’ve never achieved Big LEAPS in my business from social media or sitting at my desk staring into my laptop. The big income leaps (think 25% – 50%) have been directly related to networking and cultivating collaborative relationships.
This episode is chock full of great tips and tricks. I’ll share:
My guest Carly Stein was studying abroad when a bout of chronic tonsillitis sent her to a pharmacy in search of a cure. What she learned was kind of a miracle.

The amazing thing is that everything is so accessible. Every single one of us can figure it out.” – Carly Stein

People with strong networks can rise above the noise.” – Amy Franko
When you know those one or two very significant goals, that is going to give you the track to run on so that you can better prioritize your time.” – Amy Franko
If you want to build the skill, you can. It is the habits that you put into your everyday relationship building that becomes the ‘how’.” – Amy Franko
People who really get it (who are really intentional about building the RIGHT strategic relationships); they are focused on a big significant goal and that helps them make good choices about where they invest their time in building their networks.” – Amy Franko
Recently, someone I care deeply about, nearly missed an opportunity that COULD affect their potential future. You know what the error was? Lack of follow-up. Follow-up is something that anyone can do. It doesn’t matter how much (or how little) education you have, it doesn’t discriminate, and it levels the playing field.
Here’s another (deeper) reason I think people don’t follow-up: Fear of failure, Fear of the word No. “If I don’t follow-up, I’ll be spared the feeling of rejection.”
You didn’t start your business solely to make a lot of money. I know this because 100% of the women I work with and host on my podcast comment that it’s never about the money—it’s about solving a problem or filling an unmet need. Your highest contribution, in part, is bringing your creative ideas to the world.
I have never achieved Big LEAPS in my business from social media or just sitting at my desk staring into my laptop. The big income leaps (think 25% – 50%) have been born out of networking and cultivating collaborative relationships with people who embrace your genius, your highest contribution.
In the age of “fake news,” how do we know what to believe anymore?

Today’s interview is the shortest interview that I’ve done so far, but it’s probably one of the most important interviews I’ll ever do.
Natalie Hampton is a 17 year-old high school student who’s got more moxie than almost anyone I know.
After suffering several years of death threats, being physically attacked, sitting alone and feeling isolated at lunch, Natalie Hampton got fed up. She created the app, Sit With Us, a digital platform that allows students to have a safe space to enjoy their lunch at school among peers who will be friendly and conversational.
Today, Sit With Us, has over 100,000 downloads in eight countries and has won numerous awards for its success.

It has shown me how many people are affected by bullying, because I’ve heard so many stories. But it has also shown me how many people are out there trying to solve the problem as well.” – Natalie Hampton
I really didn’t think it would go this far. It was more of a therapy project, if anything, when I started it.” – Natalie Hampton

I struggled this week on what I wanted to share with you. I actually had one article written and another in draft mode, but neither were hitting the mark for me instinctually.
This morning I woke with a rush of energy and intense passion. I knew exactly what my message needed to be. Read on if you are ready to be inspired and at the same time feel a little uncomfortable.
We, as women in leadership (by the way, that’s you), need to persist in having our voices heard. You need to speak up for other women who may not for varying reasons (i.e. fear, physical abuse) cannot in their current situation. You need to speak up for your mothers, daughters, sons, grandchildren and next door neighbors.
As recent as this week, a prominent, high profile female leader in our government was silenced… like a lamb. You cannot convince me that our beloved suffragettes who persisted for hours, days, weeks and years to blow the door wide open for our ability to express our opinions and views would accept what’s happening.
