Podcast

Overview

In this age of hyperconnectivity, the walls are dropping down and the world is getting smaller day by day. The ironic bit is that it is harder than ever to identify true connections among hundreds of people we connect with on a daily basis. Yash Vasant, an entrepreneur, public speaker, and mentor takes us through the process of networking and tells us the secret to successfully connecting with people. 

“I wasn’t networking for business, I was networking because I liked the guy.”

Yash is the Founder and National Director of Corporate Connections, an organization that helps entrepreneurs connect through forums and helps them have meaningful conversations and relationships with others who might be going through the same situations in life. 

In the interview, Yash talks to us about the randomness of this universe and shares how the best connections are made not when you’re trying hard but when you like the person you are connecting with. He advises people to take 10 minutes out of their day and reach out to someone they haven’t reached out to before and make real connections with them. 

“I wasn’t networking for business, I was networking because I liked the guy.”

Being on the top is a lonely job and entrepreneurs often feel lonesome at the top. Yash is filling the gaps in their lives through his organization and helping them build a family. Tune in to this interview and learn more about networking and building relationships.
