Some of Cleon’s wisdom? According to Cleon his smartest networking move: Realizing that anywhere one goes is always a networking opportunity. By attending assorted venues I’ve met a wide array of folks with many abilities and talents. Some will be added to our circles of influence and others will go by the wayside.
What works: Lots of networking and hard work. Networking is so useful, needed, efficient and fun. When networking we meet many new folks and some will become permanent members of our circles of influence. If we have fun and meet new folks then we have learned something. This is where my personal mantra comes from: “Have fun, meet people, learn something.”
