Take this into consideration when planning your networking activity. It may be great to attend lots of networking meetings every week but it all adds up.
- Time preparing for each meeting.
- Time to travel to and from the event.
- Time spent at the event.
- Time spent following-up after the event - email phone calls.
So, in reality, your one hour network meeting probably takes up at least twice that time, if not longer. For every meeting you attend - decide if it's the best use of your time and does the value you get from the meeting make it worth your while.
Be more selective - your time has value, value your time.
