We’re most likely to find our next job opportunity or client through our existing network, but growing and cultivating professional relationships in the time of COVID is challenging. That’s why I’m interviewing Janice Porter, LinkedIn strategist, networking coach, and host of the Relationships Rule Podcast to teach us how to develop relationships, not just make connections, through LinkedIn. If you’ve got limited time to grow your network, hate mixers and professional events, or are limited in making new connections due to COVID, this episode is for you.
In this episode, Janice Porter referenced the book, “The Power of Human Connection: How Relationship Marketing is Changing the Way People Succeed.”
About the Guest:
Janice began her career as a teacher, was a corporate trainer and has now been in business for herself for several years. She found her niche coaching and training business professionals to network at a mastery level and turn their connections into new business.
For Janice, it’s all about relationships! First and foremost is her family – she is very proud of her two daughters, and appreciates the support of her husband through all that she does.
Having an innate curiosity, she has leveraged that into building business relationships and teaches others how to do the same. Connecting people is a skill that Janice uses, when needed – and only when she feels that it will be managed most professionally - as she holds her relationships very dearly.
Her passion is working with people who want to build their businesses through relationship marketing and networking – and she does that using online and offline strategies.
LinkedIn training is a huge part of Janice’s business. She believes anyone in business or looking for a new position, needs to have a professional LinkedIn profile, and that LinkedIn is a powerful, under-utilized online platform for attracting new clients, new referral partners, or being found by recruiters.
Staying connected, and nurturing relationships comes next – and Janice shows clients how to implement a Tangible Touch follow-up system with clients, prospects, and associates to stay in front of them, while at the same time celebrating and appreciating them on a consistent basis.
Janice really values the friendships and business relationships she makes and when she meets someone new is always thinking: “How may I support you?”.

About the Host:
Janice Scholl has spent her entire career talking about money and business. Through her time as a commercial banker, consultant and mentor to budding entrepreneurs, she helped clients create solid business and financial strategies to help propel their business to success. While working with aspiring female entrepreneurs, Janice noticed that the same four themes kept repeating:
From these themes The Money, Career, & Motherhood Podcast was born. Now Janice spends her time helping mothers gain confidence and understanding about money, career, and business topics as they relate to motherhood and family – the way many women actually think about money. Janice loves helping mothers implement business and financial strategies within their families to help each family member thrive.
