Mountain Biking & Networking: More Alike Than You May Think

What Does a Mountain Bike Have to Do with Networking? A Lot, Actually . . .

In this quick video, Referral Institute® Partner & President Mike Macedonio, who is also a good friend of mine and an avid mountain biker, explains an excellent metaphor he came up with about mountain biking and networking. 

Not only does Mike do a great job of explaining how aspects of mountain biking are very similar to networking, he also manages to do something that’s quite remarkable . . . he talks me into getting on a mountain bike ! 😉

After watching the video, ask yourself about your own networking group–does it have all the key components to function and gain momentum like a well-built, lasting mountain bike?

Also, I’m really interested in hearing any networking metaphors you’ve come up with during your networking career--I’ve heard some very creative ones over the years and they always get me thinking so I love hearing new ones.  Please share your ideas in the comments section . . . who knows? . . . I might just be asking you to do a future guest blog!

  1. Dr. Misner,

    Networking is like dating…

    If you think about it, you meet someone who you think is the right person ( enter visibility zone), get to know each other (proceed into the credibility zone) and if this person is someone you feel will be a mutually beneficial connection, you really want to be able to earn their trust (enter into the profitability zone) and you want this relationship to work. Kind of like dating, huh?
