Inc Printer-Friendly: The 10 Secrets of a Master Networker

One of the best articles on Networking I have ever read (referred to me by people at Ecademy). Keith Ferrazzi (CEO of YaYa) is the consumate power networker.

Puts my own personal network way to shame, and my own personal goal of talking to 5 new people a day in perspective. He apparently makes over 40 calls a day!

One of the best suggestions he makes, beyond the basic concept of networking not as a quid pro quo, but as a sense of karma, is to keep "pinging" people - keep in touch with people.

Definitely one aspect I am not perfect about doing - but need to get back in the habit of doing.

So, my personal goal for the rest of the month, beyond keeping in touch with current clients and current prospects, is to get back in touch with as many people as I can.

As well, he has a concept of "aspirational" contacts - people he wants to know. I need to do something similar, and then work my own networking to get myself in touch with them!
