Networking Is Everywhere

By July 24, 2017 January 24th, 2019 No Comments

I hate “lists” that make the activity of net-working sound easy (such as “five things every successful networker does on Monday morning”) because if there was a definitive list of five things that we had to do to network successfully, well, we’d all be doing them, wouldn’t we?

What I do know about networking is this:

  • It is an essential and continual activity.
  • You control the effort — but not the outcome.
  • Networking is everywhere.

Look around you, chances are you could be making a stronger connection.
