I'm talking about "networking." Sure, I've been hearing all about networking for years. I've even used the word myself!
But when you get down to it, networking is cold, sterile… And it seems self-serving: one person trying to form a web of contacts whose sole purpose is to do something for him.
That's not how I want to do business.
. I think of it as "What can we do for each other and each other's communities?" instead of "What can you do for me?"
When I focus on these goals, deals follow. And when a deal is made between two people (notice I did not say two businesses) who have connected - as opposed to "networked" - money usually follows.
Making a connection does require a bit more "work" than simply shoving your business card at a potential client. But the extra money you can make and the new opportunities you can open up to your community are well worth the extra effort.
There was no "Hi, how are you?" Nice to see you again." Or even "How are your children?" It was just the typical "WIIFM" approach
My first thought was - do you really think this kind of behavior is conducive to me wanting to do business with you? But what I said was, "Yes, Sue, I received the email on Thursday. I left for LA (this event) on Monday. I was planning on returning your email later in the week."
This is a wonderful example of why many people do not end up with business from networking events. They have not mastered event etiquette. Nor have they discovered the best way to make lasting connections.
People who should listen to this show are entrepreneurs, career coaches,
Flint activist Arthur Woodson will come Center Stage and explain why he believes the Flint water crisis will come down to four or possibly even five Black fall guys. He will show how the scene is being set now for these Black men to ultimately be held responsible for this whole disaster, while Governor Rick Snyder and his other White co-conspirators will quietly make their exits without facing punishment.
There's a chance for everybody to learn and grow and improve but sometimes we're in the place in our lives where nothing anyone is saying is getting through because we're in such a bad state of affairs that we're essentially blocked from reasoning. Should someone give up on us? Maybe? Maybe not?

What do you think makes the fans zoom in on a character and go "Yup, that's the one. That's the favorite!" Certainly all characters are liked but someone, but usually a show or movie has a character that stands above the rest.
From my perspective: Supernatural has Dean, Teen Wolf is Stiles, NCIS is Tony, Criminal Minds is Spencer... shows like SG1 and SGA I could argue it was either of the two leads.
But what is it about those characters that makes us sit up and take notice, and more importantly, how to bring that level of interest to an original character?
The team arrives in Washington, D.C. in 1986 to find a document that will lead them to Savage. The team infiltrates the Pentagon and retrieve a government file that points them toward scientist Valentina Vostok in the Soviet Union. Chronos tracks the team, and Rip is forced to use Russian fighter jets to assist in taking down Chronos. While Ray and Snart go after Vostok, Rip tracks a time anomaly outside of Moscow. Rip finds his mentor Zaman Druce, who offers to pardon Rip and return his new team to their time if Rip voluntarily surrenders. The pardon is a trick, and Zaman attempts to kill Rip. With help from the team, Rip survives and Chronos and Zaman escape. Back on the ship, Rip has Sara and Kendra work together to tame the feral nature that resides in each of them. Dr. Stein infiltrates a research lab and discovers Savage is trying to build an army with the same abilities as Firestorm. Dr. Stein absorbs the energy in Savage's thermal core, but he, Ray, and Mick are captured by the Soviets.
