When It Comes To Networking, Ditch The Outside The Box Thinking

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

Building a dream network means….thinking inside the box. 

No. Not in a “poor me! these are my only alternatives” whining sort of way, rather in an expansive, creative way. 


Why am I such an advocate for “in the box” thinking to get creative yet practical networked solutions? Because there will ALWAYS be a need for more time, resources, information, connections, data points etc. etc. etc. and with that in mind, what are you going to do about it? 




Stay stuck?

Or get moving by getting creative? It’s your career, and your call. 

Here’s your #BYDN challenge: Have you been so focused on what you don’t have that you have overlooked the resources (and opportunities) right under your nose? How can you build your dream with what you have at hand?

Need more inspiration? Yes, read #BYDN (or read it again) and watch one of my favorite TED talks (Phil Hansen’s Embrace The Shake).
