Host a breakfast meet up once a month. Host a happy hour social and invite others to hear another influencer in your community on their expertise. By arranging someone “more influential” than you to have a platform, you are affiliated with their influence. By sharing your sphere of contacts and influence to a greater influencer, when you routinely do this not only will you be growing your circle of influence, but the peers of the primary influencer will hear your name, your involvement and eventually you will be someone they won’t want to forget to add to the guest list.
