Tim Houston on Why You Don’t Want to be a ‘9 to 5 Networker’

About a month ago I was in New York, home state of my good friend Tim Houston who is the author of a book I highly recommend called The World’s Worst Networker.  I had the opportunity to record this brief video with Tim to get his thoughts on a really interesting topic: ‘The 9 to 5 Networker.’

In the video, Tim explains what a 9 to 5 Networker is, why you definitely do not want to be one, and how to avoid becoming one/stop being one.  Says Tim, “The 9 to 5 Networker is one of the world’s worst networkers . . .”  These types of networkers are overlooking a very, very prominent network which is at their very fingertips and they confuse business acquisition with business transaction.

I agree with everything Tim says here and if you want to ensure you aren’t missing out on the huge opportunities that 9 to 5 Networkers are missing on a daily basis, I really encourage you to take the two minutes out of your day that it will take to watch this video.  After you’ve watched it, I’d love for you to leave your thoughts in the comments section . . . have you been guilty of 9 to 5 networking?  If so, after hearing Tim’s points, do you think you’ll rethink your 9 to 5 networking strategy?

Video: Last Week’s “Today” Show Appearance

It was truly an honor to be interviewed on the “Today” show last Tuesday (2/21/12) by Kathie Lee and Hoda.  It was such a great experience that I’m going to post a blog next Monday about the interview and what happened behind the scenes. 

For now, I’d like to share the 4-minute video clip of the interview here and please feel free to leave your feedback in the comments section–I’d love to hear your thoughts on the information that was discussed in the interview!
