Everyone is busy! We all have many things to do and not enough time to do them. However, if you own a business or if you work for a company and your income depends on your contact with people and you are not taking time to network. . . you are making a big mistake!

With all the demands on our time made by our business, professional and personal lives, it is tempting to assign a lower priority to networking as an activity designed to meet new people.

Okay, so it’s time to insert the “P” word. Priorities! You must set a high priority for business networking. It’s a wise choice to consistently be widening your centers of influence. Networking is one of the most profitable activities you can be involved with.

You can’t just go to a networking event and expect miracles. Developing effective business relationships takes time. However it takes very little time or effort to get it right. Perusing this networking BLOG is a great place to begin. There are lots of articles that will instruct you on the most productive ways to network.

Buzzy Gordon says, “It takes only a moment’s conscious decision to become a networker, with no interference to one’s daily routine. All it requires is a slight shift in attitude, and adopting one simple trifurcated rule: Greet each new acquaintance with an openness to learn more about that person, a willingness to help, and an offer to stay in touch.”

If you have a tough time working networking into your schedule, make it a point to attend only those networking meetings and events that are vital to your professional or business success. Choose wisely.

Networking allows you exposure to a large number of professionals in a variety of business fields. You need to get serious about engaging with successful people.

Lack of time is no longer a legitimate excuse. You never have time to do the things that you do not want to do. However if your career and success in life is important to you than you need to begin to network today! Networking can highly influence and accelerate your success level.

Networking works if you do it on purpose! Say, “Yes!” to business networking!

If you think you are too busy to network and you don’t do it, you get to be right!
