Relationship networking is about consistency and reliability; consistently meeting new people and reliably following up with the folks you have met. It’s about developing relationships with referral partners who can provide a steady stream of income far into the future- the opposite of the fast hit.
Don’t EVER Give Up… Just like anything else worthwhile in life.
- Real networking is all about relationship building, and that takes time!
- The investment payoff will come over time and in many ways.
- The most common causes of failure is the habit of quitting when you are overtaken by temporary defeat.
While you are building relationships and patiently nurturing your crops, there are many great benefits along the way.
A really good networking group provides a business education that is not taught in school. I am always learning lots of really great and useful things from my networking brothers and sisters. I learn things about life, living, real estate, technology, marketing and the list goes on and on.
I am always looking to sharpen my skills and I use meetings to practice. I am always learning how to become a better farmer.
Some of my closest and dearest friends have come from networking. Networking when done right really enriches you in many ways.
