Your network can HELP your net worth..


Your network can HELP your net worth..



We've all heard the age old cliche "Your network is your net worth." While this sounds catchy and is an awesome concept, I believe it's highly misunderstood. I'm going to step out on a limb here and say "Your network can HELP your net worth."

Check this out..

In a time where everybody and their mother's daughter's roommate is hollering network, what actually makes your networking successful?

The simple answer: What you GIVE..

When people say your network is your networth, some people think you can get wealthy by just knowing someone. While nothing is impossible and association is powerful, this is highly unlikely. All wealth and anything longstanding comes from work and giving. This is why I say your network can HELP your net worth. Your work here is to help others, essentially giving. A lot of people have networking backwards. Here's a key, if you want your network to help you, you must contribute. What are you contributing to yours?

Networking doesn't work if you only take from it. You know that one friend who only calls when they need something? Yea? If you only take from your network, you give your partners that same exact feeling. Look for ways to help your people. You must bring something to the table if you want to sit there.

Give before you think about getting, but don't give with intentions to get. Keep all relationships mutually beneficial and develop "win-win" partnerships. People like to win. That makes networking with you attractive. These are just my humble, but I consider accurate, opinions built from what I've studied and or observed from mentorship and successful networking giants. Treat this blog like a grocery store, only take what you want off of the shelf. Let's take the title a bit further. Your network can help your net worth, if you're willing to help your network..

Give like its going out of style and build your dream team.

You can do it.

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
