There’s a book by Keith Ferrazzi named “Never Eat Alone: And Other Secrets to Success, One Relationship at a Time.”
If you haven’t yet read it, you should! Basically, among other things, it highlights the importance of networking for both business-related and personal goals. Sure, there are people who despise networking, and I understand that it’s not everyone’s favorite thing to do, but I’ve tried it twice this week and had such a positive experience both times. One conversation turned into a huge potential new business project and the other was great for building up a personal relationship. In fact, as a rule of thumbs, I try to have lunch with at least 1 other person each week and can truly recommend that. In fact, all those of you, who work as a freelancer from home, will know that it can get get a little lonely at times. Therefore, I urge you to make the call, write the message or do whatever it takes to invite someone to meet you up for a meal.
