How NOT to Make Money Out of Networking

Think about this:

At your local peer networking events you meet with self-employed consultants just like yourself.

Most of you are working out of the home office, eating rice, pasta, or whatever your situation is.

You are out there looking for business, and …

Business is the exchange of two pieces of paper, one of which must be a cheque.

Neither you nor I want to part with our money, we want to GET money, and since none of us wants to part with our money, spending time at, or after, a networking event trying to persuade a fellow consultant to part with money is a futile waste of time, and an insult to your joint intelligence.

Stop reading for a few seconds, and add up, roughly, how many thousands of dollars you have made from your peer networkers over the past year.

That was easy, wasn’t it?

And if you spent even one MINUTE trying to earn zero dollars, then by definition, that minute was a total waste of time.
