Gratitude and Giving Thanks

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

Thank you.

Two words that combine powerfully and frankly, you can’t say quite enough. I’m thankful for the upheaval and transformation of my life since 2013. I’m profoundly grateful for the network that has supported me IRL (online and off) as I’ve evolved my career (yet again). You — yes you, reader of this newsletter — are part of my network and I’m immensely thankful that you keep me in your inbox.

As Nilofer Merchant notes in her book “11 Rules for Creating Value in the #Social Era”:

Social has never been a technology trend….Humans have always wanted to connect, organize and create value.

We’ve connected by the words I include in this newsletter each week. And perhaps in-person at an event, or through a podcast interview or exchange of tweets. So in the grateful spirit of connections — an ask this week:

  • How can I help you?
  • What insights on #networking can I offer that would be valuable to you?
  • Is there a #BYDN insight you’d like a sneak peek on?

LMK what’s on your mind, what would be valuable for me to help you with.

And thank you.

Interested in planning a #BYDN network book event with me? Fire me an email or tweet — and let’s connect to get it on the calendar.
