I shared with you last Thursday a blog post of an extract from Harvey Mackay book entitled DIG YOUR WELL BEFORE YOU’RE THIRSTY- THE ONLY NETWORKING BOOK YOU’LL EVER NEED.  I thought I would share another extract from a different Chapter.

Chapter Title – What is a network?

A network provides a path, a way of getting from point A to point B in the shortest possible time over the least possible distance.

To expand on that a bit, it’s finding first whom you need to get, what you need in any given situation and then helping others do the same.

Networking is a way of connecting the dots between A and Z without having to go through C, D, E……W, X and Y.

In other words, a network is geodesic rather than pyramidal.  In a network, the interconnecting links can be lateral, vertical, or diagonal.  Each link is no more or no less important than another.  The whole structure is designed to minimize the distance between any one point and another.  Each part reinforces the others.

 A network is an organized collection of your personal contacts and your personal contacts’ own networks. Networking is finding fast whom you need to get what you need in any given situation and helping others do the same.

Are you building your network?
