Is Networking A Waste of Time?
I've been to networking events, and I've worked the rooms incredibly well.
And whilst that's fine - there's an awful lot of stuff to get done in order to ensure that Networking Events will be worth your time, compared to say, other types of making contact with people.
Because deep down, that's really what networking boils down to isn't it.
The problem, or mistake that I see a lot of people make are that they go to a networking event and then just speak to the same last 3 people they saw last time.
Everyone is equal in the eyes of a networker, whereas I would much prefer to speak to someone who has more experience than I do; but invariably, I'm always the one who happens to have the most experience (with 17 years of property investing under my belt).
So in order for me to make the most out of my valuable time, I decided to do something different.
I had no choice. I live in Spain, so for me to attend a networking event it means I actually have to fly there !
NOT the best use of my time.
So find out what I do instead.
