The FAB Corner: You WOW. You Exploit. Now What?
- In a room of 100 people, how would you stand out?
- If you met your dream contact at a networking event, what did you say or do that would make them want to email you back or accept your lunch invitation?
- Your dream contact is willing to meet. In what ways are you going to maximize this opportunity?
Results: This is a qualitative test and can only be accurately measured by you. Be honest in answering and critiquing your answers.
The important element to remember is that your WOW Factors are more than hollow traits or features about yourself, it is your unique opportunity to market yourself (and this is a lifelong skill that you must continue to perfect and master) as you continue to evolve and tackle new goals. Your job in implementing and showcasing your special qualities never ends. It is a daily challenge that becomes easier to accomplish with consistent practice.
