Connections require conscientious commitment. Selfishness and self awareness are not compatible.
Many people in business for themselves attend networking events to meet new people in an attempt to grow their business.
One challenge I see for many people, myself included is keeping the focus on BEING RELEVANT FOR OTHERS! When we attend such functions with a focus on what we can get, we lose sight of the bigger picture. When we focus on whose life we could impact positively we find huge opportunities to grow and expand our network even further.
I can tell you for certain, the business connections and friendships which have expanded my circle of influence from my own neighborhood to international speaking opportunities have all come from GIVING of myself freely rather than trying to eek some new business.
