Today’s guest is a whirling dervish of action, energy and results.

For 20+ years she has been developing sales strategies and delivering customized sales training to companies nationwide, across virtually every industry and in firms ranging in size from solopreneurs to Fortune 500 organizations.

She is also the author of “The Blatant Truth: 50 Ways to Sales Success” and her byline can be found in many business and trade publications.

She is a powerhouse when it comes to networking, gathering contacts and connections wherever she goes and then proactively and eagerly connecting people together. She thinks in terms of synergies and alliances and opens doors where you would least expect them to be open.

She believes networking is a circular adventure, not a linear activity. She looks for the endless possibilities that exist in a wide circle of connections and then helps to facilitate contacts and meetings and helps people to join hands and see the opportunities that lie ahead.

For this reason she created Adrian’s Network, an immensely successful business networking community that regularly hosts highly facilitated gatherings.

Please join me in welcoming Adrian Miller.

 

In this episode we discuss:

  • her thoughts on leadership: “I define leadership with a couple of keywords; vision, passion, and grit.”
  • her realization that leadership came to her in nursery school.
  • her thoughts on leading committees and dealing with committee members not pulling their weight.
  • how her single mom’s tenacity to hustle was a huge inspiration to her.
  • her original goal of being an urban planner in Boston.
  • her gap year and the beginning of her business.
  • the beginnings of Adrian’s Network during an economic downturn.
  • Her three I’s: Introduction, Invitations, and Information - a way to keep up with 2nd and 3rd level networks.
