I wanted to take time out of our busy lives and to bring to everyone’s attention the power of networking and to discuss a little bit about all of the different areas within it. I am sure if you are reading this post, then you are very familiar with “social networking” which is a very powerful means of spreading the word and/or advertising. If you are not familiar with social media, stick close to this website and read more posts and you will start to learn more about all of social media’s capabilities. Furthermore, you could always leave a comment or question or even a private email and somebody within the support team will be happy to help you.

Having said all that, I wanted to briefly cover the other realms of networking. Mainly the ability to work with other humans on a face-to-face level. I believe those that have behind the computer jobs can become very bored and physically out of shape really quick if they are not careful. I have fallen victim to this and therefore set a goal to work more on my socializing skills. However, because I am a workaholic I do not know how to separate work from pleasure so I decided to kill two birds with one stone. What this means is I figured out a way to satisfy both needs. I am currently networking long distance with others on joint venture projects which I am not at liberty to share at the moment but will for learning purposes later on once I receive permission. I have landed some major accounts in Dallas-Fort Worth area which is a booming industry in case you were wondering.

I am really excited about these opportunities and actually was in my friends condominium when I got off the phone and landed the account and in real time when I threw up my arms in excitement and jumped up I accidentally throw the chair behind me into the window right behind me and I shattered it pretty bad. Lucky for me, my friend had his life-time warranty with the window company Lewisville Windows he had his home furnished with and he was able to get it replaced by the next day. What impressed me the most about this experience is the way he handled it when it happened. Most people would be upset at the least, but he still took the time to let me know it is going to be ok and after reassuring me everything will work out, we still celebrated and then called the window installers.

I realized whenever travesty happens in your life and you are alone, it is hard to deal with and even if there is no travesty, there is nobody to celebrate the good times with. I have since decided to make networking with others (with actual human beings) more of priority. The main reason is that I have noticed a spurge in energy, more work is getting accomplished, and I am not so alone in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of the daily grind of life. I hope this post somehow finds you in good faith and helps you develop more balance in your life and greater success with business friendships. I know I have made some new friends for life.
