…is how true networking is best done!
Now, before you place your fingers around my throat and squeeze, let me explain.
With the vast expansion of the online networking social sites, there has come along the attitude and belief that all networking can be done online. It simply isn’t true. The online social sites can be used to get a relationship started with someone, however when it gets to the level of trusting someone, we human beings need to have the face-to-face encounter to cross the barrier of trust.
There are far too many clues about a person’s character that we pick up at a face-to-face meeting that we miss when engaging someone online.
What are your thoughts on the matter? I’d love to hear.
