Wednesday, April 17 at 11AM, Aakash Patel, Elevate, Inc. President, was hosted on 1250AM WHNZ radio station with the The Business Happy Hour crew, Frank Coto of Lincoln Lending Group, Doug Ford of Suncoast Roofing Solutions, and Ryan Pelky of Tampa Bay Plumbers, LLC.
On the air Aakash shared the business tip of the week which included advice about networking events and how to be efficient while at them. The first tip was that there is always an organizer and a sponsor for an event and to make sure to thank them at the beginning. This is important because those people know who is who in the room. The second tip was about having a plan before walking into an event. Set a personal goal to meet and get the business cards of a set number of people and also, when attending an event with other colleagues, make sure to split up to ensure that you will talk to new people and not the people you already know. Aakash also mentions the importance of following up via e-mail and LinkedIn within 24 hours of attending the event.
Frank, Ryan, and Doug started The Business Happy Hour 3 years ago to give back to the community by sharing tips of trials and tribulation successes and failures that they personally experienced during their decades in the business world. Unlike other radio stations, they don’t spend time promoting themselves, instead their goal is to be there for new companies to help them grow and prosper in the Tampa Bay community. The Business Happy Hour is continually looking for exciting new guests who can offer something useful to their listeners. Contact them today to see how you can be featured on The Business Happy Hour!
