Networking isn’t about passing out business cards at random events. It's about having strategic conversations -- the right conversation with the right person at the right time.
Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) February 9, 2011
Entrepreneurs and solo professionals know the value of networking. Yet, many have amassed thousands of “friends” and “followers” and drawers full of business cards with few clients to show for it, and struggle to break even while watching less talented competitors get all the breaks. They remain connection rich, but cash poor.
The difference between success and failure depends not on the quantity of relationships, but on the quality of them, and that’s a direct result of the quality of the conversations they have.
