The FAB Corner: WOW Factor Files
WOW Factor Files \ˈwau̇ ˈfak-tər ˈfī(-ə)ls)\
Professional documentation neatly organized in a binder (notes, invites, emails, business cards, websites, associations) that you have accrued from business contacts and individual outreach and research.
In what ways are you documenting the valuable information and resources gained from meetings, events and research? Disorganization is a leading stressor for individuals trying to tackle their career goals.
By creating your own WOW Factor Files, you are essentially developing a business library with valuable information that will help you advance your career, increase your network and enhance your industry knowledge.
Before we discuss effective ways to create your “WOW Factor Files”, let’s review the first three parts of the WOW Factor series. *Note: If you have not read articles 1-3, I advise you to do so before reading this one. You will be better equipped to implement the lessons learned in this article.
- Part 1 – Identify your tangible and intangible WOW Factors
- Part 2 – Strategize on ways to positively exploit your WOW Factors
- Part 3 – Implement your WOW Factors and follow up to ensure that you are generating tangible results
After you have successfully completed the first three parts in this series, you will have undoubtedly developed a robust resource database. But, without proper documentation and organization, your hard work will lose its luster.
