Are you waiting for your network to come to you and offer you information, contacts, business leads and other opportunities?
Or are you more pro-active? And in what way?
Are you a “taker” or a “hunter”? Someone who is looking for “what’s in it for me” and preferably in the short term?
Or are you a “giver” or a “farmer”? Someone who understands that to reap he has to sow first?
Think about what you can give to your network. It doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming! Just giving your full attention for a short period of time can be valued highly by the people you meet.
One of the most powerful things you can do in networking is connecting people. This is also a present to your network. Many people’s lives changed by just one contact. Be the connector that makes this happen!
Have a great networking day !
