In the last post on Business Networking Tips, I talked about the Poker Player . . . the person that showed up and dealt out his business cards like a poker player deals out playing cards.
That person is looking at their network as being limited . . .
By not building relationships with those people, the Poker Player is ignoring his extended network . . . those 20 – 30 – 100 or more people that each of those people know and network with.
It’s a short sighted view.
That is also the reason why the extra time invested in weekly networking events, (instead of monthly events), pays dividends.
The more frequent interactions build the friendships and connections far more rapidly.
Stands to reason doesn’t it?!
Well, that is quite simple really!
What should you do now?
- If you want to build your network, then build your relationships.

I have the urge to just delete all my social networking sites so I can stop getting attached to people from the internet.
