Business Networking, a Blog by Stephen Harris - Zero To Network



Business Networking on ZeroToNetwork,
Welcome!

Business networking is very powerful. You're visiting my networking Blog, so you probably "get it". However, there was a time when I had no clue to the limitless potential. That was remedied when I was asked to step into the Career Transition Zone. To compound matters, I was an Introvert. No clue about networking and an introvert - oh boy was I in trouble.

With the help of some dynamic individuals, I went from "Zero to Networking". I was now able to walk up to strangers and introduce myself, and learn the ways of the business networking world. Eventually, I led Networking groups, mentored (even while unemployed), became an Executive Recruiter, met with entrepeneurs and senior level executives -- and eventually - found a great new position. I became an extroverted-introvert. I became...connected! Zero to Networking!

Networking is very powerful! Oh yes - I made tons of mistakes, learned from them and made different mistakes... and still, am not an expert. Who is?

That is the objective of the Zero To Network Blog, so we can learn from each other. Enjoy! Networking is also fun! Stephen Harris

Business Network for Life.

Pet Peeve time;

Recently I opened up my network and provided support to someone seeking a new job after she was laid-off. I always find it very gratifying to help others and I never ask for anything in return. So what is my pet peeve?

After she found a new position (she was someone I used to work with and was out of work a long time), she disappeared off the radar scope. No follow-up's, no thank you's. No offers to help others. I am sure she is focusing on her new job, which is important - but never forget your network.

At a recent Marketing Executive Networking Group (MENG) meeting we discussed how important it is to remain connected with your network - even after you succeed in find that next great job. It is not unusual for people to discover the power of networking when they are placed in a career transition. This is how I learned. However, my strong advice is to remain connected with (and grow) your new found network once you succeed in finding a new job. Return the favors you received by helping others unselfishly.

Why? Besides being a good thing to do and very gratifying -- you never know when you might "need" your network again. If you have been active in your network, help will just happen naturally. BUT if you have disappeared, and once again need help...   

Think about it and become a Business Networker for life!

it happens sometime and it may be the habit of some one i myself never reply or never say thanks to the people who has done a great good to me.
