Do you ever feel like your ego gets in the way of networking well? You’re not alone. In fact, Wednesday May 11th is World Ego Awareness Day, so it’s the perfect time to explore this topic. Many people struggle with networking because they are more interested in promoting themselves than building relationships. This can be a major obstacle when it comes to making connections and growing their business. In this blog post, we will discuss how to check your ego at the door and network with different personality types.

When you are conscious of your ego, you can catch yourself when you start to act from a place of self-importance. It’s also important to be humble and open-minded when networking. This will allow you to build relationships with different types of people, even if they don’t share your same interests.
