Press the Damn Button: Networking by Design

ARVE Error: need id and provider

Too often we network by proximity. In this episode Brian Fanzo shares his mantra, “press the damn button” to network with others through the sharing of stories. This is transformational because most of us build our network over time through proximity — people from your business school, or through family and friends. Not only do online platforms expand our networking opportunities but they open up people from industries you may never come in contact with.

Brian is a digital futurist who translates the trends of tomorrow to inspire change today. He is currently the Founder of iSocialFanz, which has helped launch digital and influencer strategies with the world’s most iconic brands like Dell, EMC, Adobe, IBM, UFC, Applebee’s, and SAP. Brian believes that we all need to pick up our phones and embrace his mantra “press the damn button” in doing so we share our stories with the world, building trust, awareness and connection with our communities.

In this episode Brian shares:

  • How to break the proximity barriers to networking by sharing your work online
  • Why he believes so deeply in his mantra “Press the Damn Button” and how you can get started
  • Why the non linear life no longer exists and how to design a life around your strengths and interests
  • How taking initiative can open unique opportunities despite your “qualifications”
  • Why he is CEO of Team No Niche and why he believes finding your passion is bad advice and what to do instead

All of my best and life changing relationships began online. Whether it's a simple tweet, a DM or an email. It always begins and ends with the relationships we create.

Instagram is my creative outlet. It's where you can see stories that take you behind the scenes and where I love having audio chats in my DM.
