Net­work­ing Group Pon­ders an Ab­surd Ques­tion

Serve Daily - - NETWORKING LIGHTS - By Chuck Cham­ber­lain

Can you cre­ate a cake with mo­tor­cy­cle parts? That odd ques­tion was asked of Net­work­ing Nights mem­bers by Am­ber Smithson dur­ing a re­cent meet­ing in Span­ish Fork. Am­ber is a suc­cess­ful “Pres­i­den­tial Di­rec­tor” for a health coach­ing com­pany called Take Shape For Life. The com­pany fo­cuses on coach­ing to fos­ter healthy minds, healthy bod­ies, and healthy fi­nances. Am­ber asked the group to imag­ine fill­ing a box with mo­tor­cy­cle parts then dump­ing out all the parts and try­ing to make a cake with wheels, spokes, tires and en­gine parts. The idea would be ab­surd, but we of­ten be­lieve we can fill our minds with neg­a­tive or un­pro­duc­tive be­liefs, then some­how cre­ate busi­ness suc­cess from what is in our minds.

Among many other con­cepts in­tro­duced by Am­ber was a dis­cus­sion about “Struc­tural Ten­sion.” This im­por­tant con­cept re­lates to a rub­ber band stretched be­tween each of our hands. As the gap in­creases, so does the ten­sion be­tween them un­til some­thing has to give. If your top hand rep­re­sents what you want in life and your bot­tom hand is your cur­rent re­al­ity, then the gap be­tween the two cre­ates a pro­duc­tive ten­sion. Some­thing has to give, and we should al­low it to be our cur­rent re­al­ity that changes to re­solve the ten­sion. The Net­work­ing Nights group came away with many unique ideas to grow per­son­ally and in their re­spec­tive busi­ness en­deav­ors.

Net­work­ing Nights meet­ings in July will be held the first Wed­nes­day and third Tues­day of the month, 6:30 - 8:00 PM at the Span­ish Fork Macey’s gro­cery store meet­ing room (“lit­tle the­ater”). Start­ing in Au­gust, Net­work­ing Nights will be on the 1st and 3rd Tues­day. Many have said these ses­sions have made an in­cred­i­ble im­pact on their de­ci­sion-mak­ing process. Come on July 2nd for a great pre­sen­ta­tion by a lo­cal busi­ness leader.

Net­work­ing Nights wel­comes businesses of all kinds and is free to join. Mem­bers are given mul­ti­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties to present in­for­ma­tion about their businesses, are listed in an on­line di­rec­tory, (net­work­ing­ and may have the op­por­tu­nity to be pre­sen­ters or “high­lighted businesses.” Con­tact Laraine Cham­ber­lain at laraine@cham­ber­lain­lead­er­ if you are in­ter­ested.
