Networking 101

Function: noun
Date: 1967
1: the exchange of information or services among individuals, groups, or institutions ; specifically : the cultivation of productive relationships for employment or business

People often misuse this word or should I say slack on the action of NETWORKING. Being on the numerous social sites that I am on, I am quick to deny or delete someone because they say they want to network but never say two words to me. Twitter is getting out of control with the lazy networking - I think I removed an additional 25 people last night, steaming from the 27 people I removed 2 days prior. The rappers have gotten wind of twitter and just want to send you links of their music - you'll have to read a previous post to know why that is annoying, seriously!

Number Rule to networking is BEING SOCIAL!! It's not going to happen over night or with just one conversation - give me a reason to want to check your work out, as I will give you a reason to check for me. I know I've probably done a post touching on this before but maybe I had too much going on within the post, so I decided to focus on just said title. Or maybe I'm just venting :) lol.

Well since I've started venting, let me say this! I'm alllllllll for supporting people & have a BAD habit of giving tips, suggestions, writing and promoting off of love but there is a such thing as taking advantage of the situation. Know when to be a good BUSINESS person and realize getting ahead is not always free. Asking for a price of love is no better, for starters I ALWAYS give a "love price", so there is no need to ask. Okay, I'm done - oh and I'm all out of FREE :)

don't have to listen to them ALL but a few may be on to something.

you never know, never know.
