I could not agree more. Being in IT, we are not known for our outgoing personalities. So, I have seen this same story play out time after time. Not only is networking work, it also takes time before you see results. I have started making networking a priority and it is slowly making a difference.

You are right, this is such a great article worthy to be shared! Sometimes we often look at others and try to find what's the problem with them, when all the while the problem is just us, or me. And again, networking has blessed my life, only when done with the right people and at the right time.


I agree with you. No matter how good I am with what I do, I would not be truly successful unless I have great people around to help me. I am working in building my network now. I am reaching out to people now. Networking IS really work.

Jim Randel

Well said, Precious. It's a funny cycle because once you realize networking is work, you do it well. And once you network well, you meet even more great people who enrich your life. And then it doesn't feel like work much at all!
Thanks, Jim.
