Individuals that have not allowed circumstances, hard times or lack of resources hold them back. In the book, I say the following “When you are serious about living from your Genius Potential, the Universe will respond to you in a positive way.”
The first “Everyday Genius” I want to talk about is Dr. George Fraser, CEO and Founder of FraserNet, the largest Networking Association of African-American professionals.
When I set down to speak with the Dr. Fraser, he shared with me his tragic upbringing, a story that included his mother being committed to a psychiatric ward when he was a little boy. Which led to his father giving him and his siblings up to the State, because he could not afford to take care of them.
Fast forward and Dr. Fraser was able to overcome all the dificulties and decide that his life meant something and he was going to make something of himself. Discovering that he had a gift for connecting with people and seeing a void in the African-American community where professionals could meet and share business concepts, Dr. Fraser founded FraserNet. Over a decade later, FraserNet continues to make an impact in the lives of African-American professionals around the globe.
Here are some key principals Dr. Fraser shared with me about networking and building lasting personal and professional relationships:
1. Add value first to whomever you want to connect with.
2. Follow –up with a unique greeting to everyone you wish to develop a relationship with.
3. Have professional looking business cards on you at all times.
4. Serve with excellence or don’t show up at all.
5. In this present economy, it is not good enough to be good or great, you must be amazing.
Dr. Fraser has proven that everyone has Genius Potential and it doesn’t matter where you start, it only matters how YOU decide to finish. To learn more about Dr. Fraser and FraserNet, check out the following link. (www.frasernet.urlyfe.com)
