Networking Tips #26 Time To Network

Networking takes time - not only time to see the results but also the time you actually spend on your networking, you might not realise how much it adds up.

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.
