Networking to business is like oxygen to humans.
● Tax Problem
If you wake up tomorrow morning and receive a letter from the I.R.S., just pick up your network list and contact your tax attorney. This will take 5 minutes, instead of freaking out and calling 20 people looking for a good attorney, and waisting 5 days because you didn't have anyone on your networking list.
If you have a new product coming on Monday, again just pick up your network list and contact your potential clients. This will take 2 hours, instead of waisting 2 weeks trying to sell the product. You can even sell all of the product before you receive it.
If you get a great idea on how to expand your company nation or worldwide, pick up that list again. Call your importers and exporters, and start the idea within 48 hours, not 6 months from now.
● Expert Advise
If a problem arises overnight, call a more experience mentor on your network list to help you solve your dilemma.
In the business world time is extremely valuable. The faster you can solve a problem or execute a great idea, the faster you will see results.
