I’ve posted about networking before – we all keep reading on how to build one, how to maintain one, the importance of one. I was recently at a meetup and met some new people and we discussed networking. How blah it was to be at a network event where people basically were only interested in selling you something. Or other meetings where people expect you to lay your network on the table as an item of value. The common theme I heard these lovely people say – and praise be – was that a network is of value to you. That you figure out where, when and how you can help and possibly be helped. But helping first is sometimes the key. Build a network based on how interesting people are and their value will show itself.

Oh and get out there out of your comfort zone and meet new people!
