Expounding on the theme of ‘creating your own good luck’ discussed in a recent episode, today my guest Jen Nash and I talk about how the things that so many of us want – career success, financial security, an exciting life, or just ‘getting lucky’ – may be achieved simply by the power of connection. If, like me, you don’t like “networking,” this enlightening conversation provides a helpful alternative. By looking at connection-building as a series of ordinary, everyday occurrences consisting of tiny connections – instead of as onerous “networking” activities – connecting with others to achieve big outcomes becomes unintimidating…and even fun!
Jen Nash helps us take a deeper look at how anyone can create deeper more powerful connections in modern life, one interaction at a time. She is an executive coach, facilitator, speaker, and author of The Big Power of Tiny Connections: How Small Interactions Spark Awesome Outcomes. Trained in the field of communication, Nash has a powerful grasp on what is required to turn a brush of fate into a life changing event. When she’s not empowering others to live a more connective life, Nash lives between New York City or Los Angeles or San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
