Melitsa Waage is Showing the Power of Networking Through Epic Talks
It’s common knowledge that in life, it’s not what you know but who you know. If there’s anyone that embodies this truth the most, it’s high-performance mindset mentor Melitsa Waage. This entrepreneur and best-selling author is the founder of Epic Talks, a massive monthly networking event that builds incredible bridges between people from all walks of life. Melitsa has made it her mission to bridge the gap between all of us by strengthening relationships. Her Epic Talks events have become powerhouses in the networking industry, transforming lives left and right. How, exactly, does this work?
Behind every transformative company is an unstoppable entrepreneur, and that’s certainly the case for Epic Talks. Melitsa Waage is a force to be reckoned with in the networking industry and has made it her life’s mission to empower those she works with. While she’s now a successful high-performance mindset mentor, Melitsa was once stuck in a dark place. She shares that she had to hate herself and her life first before she had the courage to look in the mirror and actively decide to change her life. This inspired her to create a business that would help people embark on the same incredible journey.
While life changes start with ourselves, we also need a strong network to help us on the path. This is something that Epic Talks focuses on: the power of relationships, and connecting with the right individuals to bring your life to the next level. Melitsa knows firsthand that without connections, there is nothing. That’s exactly why she makes her monthly Epic Talks the perfect environment for building connections. Whether participants are looking for an investor, employer, or even a spouse, they’re only one person away from achieving this goal. With this mindset, it’s obvious that networking events are the top ways to accomplish your dreams.
Networking should be an ongoing process, Melitsa says. She encourages clients to go to networking events at least once a week, and to come from a place of service. Make relationship-building about other people. When networking you need to add value to someone else’s life, not go into it solely thinking about how you can benefit. You only have a few seconds to catch someone’s attention, so use those first few seconds to ask them about themselves, Melitsa recommends. This will demonstrate that you’re genuinely interested in getting to know them. Plus, people usually love talking about themselves!
Once networking is a regular part of your life, you’ll quickly learn that your network is your net worth. There is immense value in the connections you build, so make sure to nurture them. With all of this knowledge, Melitsa has been able to build Epic Talks into the influential, number 1 networking event in the world. She has plans to go global in 5 years, bringing Epic Talks to epic cities around the world. With the incredible community she has created, this is certainly an achievable goal.
