The truth is, you simply never know where your next great referral is going to […]

Do What Others Don’t

Do What Others Don’t

To some businessspeople, networking is something to try when they’re hurting for business.  However, networking is actually a primary strategy for generating business relationships that lead to more referrals.  When done correctly, networking is a proactive strategy for business growth, not a reaction to slow business.

Is Your Network a Mile Wide and an Inch Deep?

Is Your Network a Mile Wide and an Inch Deep?

In Southern California we have many huge, tall, lush eucalyptus trees that topple over fairly easily in the high winds that occur almost every year.  When they’re uprooted and blown over, you can see that their root system is broad and wide but not very deep.  I think this is a powerful metaphor for what to consider in building your personal network.  To go deep in establishing […]
