Networking – it’s a people game not a numbers game.

Are you meeting as many different people as possible at different events and collecting the maximum number of business cards? Are you playing the networking numbers game? I believe that this is like being on a carousel, just keep going round and around and getting nowhere, starting from scratch every time you network.
The people who really make networking work for them and their businesses know how to build strong relationships with a smaller number of people, it’s a people game, not a numbers game. They know the way to success and they don’t need to go out and meet new people all the time, their introductions to new people and opportunities come via their group.
If you’re constantly meeting new people, you leave yourself only a little time for the for relationship and friendship building. Friends are people you know, like and trust which is the Thrive ethos. Friends show loyalty, offer help and support and really care for the well-being of you and your business. All things that you need in making your business Thrive!
