This initiative may sound counter-productive at first, but I assure you, it can be extremely lucrative/beneficial.
The idea is for you to donate your time at someone else’s event, workshop, lecture, or seminar. How can this help you? Let me give you a couple of examples.
Let’s say you’re a financial advisor and you work with an accountant who is going to have a special lecture on tax planning. The accountant is hosting the lecture for his/her active, prospective and/or new clients. You offer to volunteer your time and provide a free value-added-service (i.e. Wealth Creation Assessment) to all of his/her attendees. This, in turn, adds more value to the event AND gives the accountant an opportunity to attract more people/referrals to his/her event.
