What are you doing for others?

The third Monday of January every year is a public holiday in the United States to celebrate the life of Martin Luther King. One of his famous quotes is very apt with regard to success in business networking:

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?"

The most successful networkers are not looking for people to sell to. They are constantly looking out for opportunities to connect others to what they need. They build relationships by doing that with people who get to know, like, and trust them. As I said in 'How to make your follow up productive', it is the giving of opportunities to others that will produce opportunities for you as people reciprocate.

Good Networking!
