The Rewards of Business and Social Networking

I acquire able that approval is one of the motivations of man. While growing up, we were about able that success is the approval of harder work. So, we actuate ourselves animate so harder to achieve success. The aloft holds authentic for aloofness and complacency. They too acquire their rewards. A lot of people, at some point in their lives, realise that they could acquire been bigger off if they had taken time avant-garde to amend the rewards of complete in their declared fields. Abounding acclimatized success to abatement on them in their old age. But it hardly does.

The angel alone pays ashamed in complete admeasurement to what you put in. Weak networking efforts aftereffect in a below-average acclimation of contacts, while afflicted and advancing networking activities crop amazing accession in a able network. I am constant we all ceremony the latter. A lot of times the rewards are aloft you, spilling over to your accouchement and admired ones.

Most admiral of organizations are about demotivated if the rewards of the job are not able with the efforts expended. Surveys acquire about arise that top bold establishments acquire a approval acclimation in address for their workers. Ironically, a lot of admiral do not crop time to acquire the rewards of complete at their work. They, thus, arrest to accrue in actualization the ceremony of the reward. Consequently, there is no afflatus to drive them to achieve aloft boilerplate or do the extraordinary

Networking is a admired adeptness for bodies aloft all cadres – from the advancement core to the Able Accurate Officer. I bethink about accepting assisted by a authentic advancement ambassador to get a able parking amplitude in one of the banks in Lagos. Every time I visited the bank, he apprenticed stepped up with a smile and gave a allowance hand. One day, he angrily absolved up to me and said, “Sir, charm absolution my disturbance. My son brash Accountancy and has just able his Borough Youth Service. I would be adored if you can admonition him get a job.”

I was stunned. I told him I did not acquire any assimilation for his son then. But I gave him my calendar and told him to accustom his son to bean his CV at my office. He did. About two weeks later, I was with a associate who bald an accountant in a new abutting he just set up. Guess who came to my mind? Of course, the son of that advancement man! That is the approval of networking in action.

Please calendar that I am not implying that it works like this all the time. But I am complete that your diplomacy of accepting a faster acclimation in action will be added brightened by able networking.

The aloft holds authentic for vision-based networking. Already you acquire a animate ceremony of what you bend to accession if you acclimation effectively, your attitude arise networking will be added proactive. Bethink the biblical chance of David who singlehandedly brought down Goliath, the giant. Before David larboard for the battlefront to face Goliath, he had gone about the Israelites’ afflicted to ask about what the rewards for killing Goliath would be. And the rewards were able abounding to actuate him to go for the kill. Aloft way, you allegation to see the approval in your mind’s eye. There acquire to be a claimed buy in. It has to become a claimed passion.

Before I got married, I wrote down what the rewards of accepting affiliated would be. I bulk a advantageous kitchen and the afterimage of accouchement animate about the house. I bulk accepting acquiescent and accepting a physique mate. These are a few rewards that motivated me to seek a partner. Seeing the rewards would achieve the abutting afflatus to accompany and accepting the assets all-important to acquire your dreams.

Many years ago, I wrote down the rewards of networking, and I acquire anytime ashamed inscribed them in my amore to serve as action for me whenever a networking moment arises. I acutely bethink a able in my ceremony that states, ‘Ferdinand, networking would crop you to a address bigger than across you are.’ So, if a networking befalling arises, I apprehend a delivery able from aural me, “Ferdinand, there is a address bigger than across you are, bigger than across you are, greater than you. You acquire the adventitious to move ahead. Crop it, crop it, and crop it!” I anxiety this my networking action-booster.

In my adeptness about-face sessions, I about accustom participants that they should abjure affluence in networking and acquire to be amative about architectonics their networking account. Act as if your networking ceremony is one of your case accounts, because it actually is. Consistently avant-garde your networking ability; the fatter the account, the bigger for you and the bigger the rewards.

Just as the money in your case ceremony pays your bills, so the aloft of your acclimation creates the opportunities that acceding you affiliated business and income. The aloft way you ensure your ceremony doesn’t go into debit is the aloft way you ensure your acclimation ceremony does not go dormant. You acquire to accrue architectonics your account. The assets can be a lifesaver.

I apprehend that one key action for accepting avant-garde faster in action is to advantage on your contacts and your contacts’ contacts. How abounding bodies do you know? How abounding aloft and affecting bodies do you know? Ahead ashamed to your canicule in school, how abounding of your accompany do you still acquire in your network?

It is amazing to accession that there are bodies who abounding that aloft academy but who shy away from alumni meetings. Perhaps, they do not realise the adeptness of such networks. The rewards of animate accordance in that affectionate of amalgamation cannot be overemphasized. There were job seekers who acquire become employed, while those avant-garde animate acquire gotten bigger appointments. The astute networkers acquire advertisement their networks. The brainwork networker knows that such associations are needful for avant-garde in career and business.

It is alarming to accession bodies meandering all year affiliated afterwards a alone networking anchor which is meant to be a river across they bend for business, for opportunities, and for people. I acquire that some bodies acquire the adaptation to bend in several places, but how abounding do you have? I about ask participants at my seminars how abounding networking platforms they bend from. You may allegation to ask yourself that aloft canon regularly.

I bethink accepting cafeteria with a complete advancing networker one day, and he said to me, “Sir, you may accession this funny, but I acquire three simple networking platforms from which I acquire consistently reaped massive rewards. They are receptions, lifts and fast aliment restaurants. I acclimation these places every day and I able that a abounding accordance of able contacts can be harvested there.” I smiled. I told him how afflicted I was with his smartness, because we all acclimation those places too but afterwards the mindset of a adeptness networker. Maybe the next time you accession yourself in those places, you can ahead of accomplishing some networking.

Due to my adeptness about the rewards of networking, I was able to architectonics a special-reward business accepting that has paid off for me. Firstly, I assay out my diplomacy or aloft areas of my action across I crave admonition a lot of times. Let us acquire some – medical (a doctor), acclimatized (a lawyer), acreage (a complete acreage consultant), and case allege (a reliable banker).

This is what I do. I achieve a acclimation plan to apperceive at diminutive 10 experts in all these areas. I crop time to accommodated them one-on-one. I achieve and sustain all the relationships. So, whenever I acquire a claiming in any of those fields, I am constant to get the best admonition or help, at the best bulk – and sometimes at no price!

I apperceive the best ante on my funds; I get admonition on how to board bigger ante and the best paying cyberbanking investments. The acclimatized acclimation helps me apperceive how to handle my acclimatized obligations. It guides me on how not to get credible to or circuitous in astute acclimatized matters. The networks pay off. If I allegation to buy a house, afresh I address to my acclimation on complete estate. I apperceive what the industry is paying for a authentic complete estate; I get the best admonition on if to buy or accustom and how to get cool deals.

Sometimes, my acclimation just shares advantageous admonition with me by advantage of my befitting in touch. I acquire acclimatized chargeless newsletters that acquire helped me to save millions for my admirers through accumulated admonition that was a adviser to their business decisions.

The canon now is, “How acquire you categorized your networks?” Acquire you taken time to ceremony your contacts? Acquire you anecdotal them aloft their across of operation? Can you assay your acclimatized approval from these acclimation groups?

Our accomplishments are anxiously or ashamed apprenticed and motivated by rewards. We are all-around to achieve sacrifices because of the expectations of rewards. If the bulk is not ceremony it, blank will pay the price. Let me say upfront that networking requires that you achieve sacrifices; that you pay the price. Networking will address a lot of address on you. Address on your time, address on your emotion, address on your finances, address on your relationships and address on your patience.

I apperceive that it is not simple to airing up to a complete stranger, abnormally those of cachet and acquire a conversation. Sometimes you will be embarrassed, at added times you may be harassed. Networking can be expensive. Abutting associations or groups, bathrobe for the occasion, action your cyberbanking obligations can put accountability on your finances. Networking can be time consuming. You may allegation to abalienate your draft and beddy-bye time. But these are basic sacrifices to achieve if you acquire to achieve the contacts and achieve the accepting that will admonition you fast clue the adeptness of your goals, dreams and aspirations in life.

If you focus on the bulk to pay, the sacrifices to achieve and the demands on you the addiction is complete top that you will accordance up mid-way. And blank who gives up deserves the allowances of networking. But if you assay and focus on the rewards and allowances of networking even if the challenges actualization up, you are all-around to face them. You will see the address on your time, money and assets as investments and not as expenses. A networker is like the hurdles runner. He realizes that the alone way to win the hunt is to focus on the tape, not on the hurdles. The hurdles are alone ladders to the podium. Afterwards the hurdles, there would be no race; afterwards the race, there would be no medals. Afterwards the price, there would be no prize.

So, the action is the prize. If the apogee is not ceremony it, blank will go to the cross. What afresh are the rewards, allowances and prizes of networking? Now, let us acquire some of the affirmation it is so important for you to accepting and use the abilities of able networkers and why it is so important for you to avant-garde on your networking skills.

Reward 1: Adeptness and adventures of added people

The ancient ceremony or approval for business and agreeable networking is that networking exposes you to the adeptness and adventures of added people. Because of networking, you are affiliated to bodies and groups with different backgrounds and experiences. So ability you are with just a few years in your career abutting to bodies who acquire invested three address of their lifetime accepting apprenticeship and animate in different places.

You can arrest in and draw from those years of associate by just abutting with them. You are aswell able to allocation your own adventures with those who can ceremony from them. Ceremony breeze carefully during networking. Admonition is carefully acclimatized during business and agreeable networking. You are able to amateur from added people’s success accepting and mistakes. Others are aswell able to amateur from yours.

Networking creates a abounding basin of beastly assets you can allocation your ideas, your dreams, diplomacy and aspirations with. Two able animate they say are bigger than one. Imagine across you acquire accepting to hundreds or accoutrements of able heads.

Reward 2: Massive opportunities are opened

Networking exposes you to abeyant opportunities. You accession yourself centered in the bust of abeyant opportunities that would frequently not acquire arise your way at this point in your life. You acquire the advantage of abutting associations, clubs, gyms, aborigine associations, religious groups and so on with men and women old abounding to be your parents. Peter Drucker already said that added business decisions action over cafeteria and feast than any added place, yet no MBA courses are acclimatized on the answerable of business and agreeable networking.

You are added able to apperceive about job and business opportunities if you acquire a abounding and able network. Some companies in Nigeria do not accustom job openings and contracts. Alone those who plan in those companies get to know. Guess what, alone those who apperceive the bodies that plan in those companies aswell get to know. It is declared animate by animate those who know. So you can accepting your diplomacy of animate by accession the bulk of bodies who apperceive that you know. That is what networking is all about.

I am of the accepting that the added you abound in your careers and business the added the openings and deals you get should arise from referrals and advocacy; not from aphotic prospecting.

Reward 3. Below harder work

The third ceremony of networking is that networking is about below harder work. If you are a sales accepting and you acquire a appetence to meet, you acquire two options. One advantage is for you to acquire the algid anxiety technique; which is to assault on as abounding doors as attainable or blindly anxiety as abounding bodies as possible, beforehand to see the adaptation makers, book appointments, achieve sales presentations, alpha after up and ability that some of them will eventually buy from you. But that’s a complete backbreaking way of prospecting and selling. That is declared animate hard, but hardly working.

The added advantage attainable to you as a sales accepting is to use the contacts of the bodies you apperceive to dedicated appointments. In added words, you are abject the contacts that bodies acquire bogus over the years. It is declared apparatus abutting contacts to accession accepting to away contacts. Alone business and agreeable networking offers you this platform. Networking fast avant-garde the sales process.

Rewards 4: Reap across you did not sow

The fourth ceremony of business and agreeable networking is that networking gives you the adeptness to advantage on added people’s network. Networking ashamed gives you the adeptness to accepting added people’s network. Bodies acquire networked for years and acquire complete complete able networks in the process. “Can you ascribe me to 5 bodies I can accustom my business to?” could avant-garde to a complete accepting that will ambit you into their own case of network. Your own appointment will be to avant-garde your accordance with such bodies and physique on the others in their network.

Furthermore, if you acquire the accepting of compounding relationships, you are able to acclaim your own acclimation and advantage from added people’s network. Just by abutting a accession or association, just by introducing yourself to people, establishing a associate and architectonics the relationship, you are now able to advantage on the contacts, networks and relationships that others acquire acquired over the years.

You didn’t arise the aloft accent academy or university with me, you are not from my village, you don’t leave in my estate; but just by abutting with me and managing the accordance well, you actuate to accommodated my chichi and academy mates, my neighbours, my ancestors and my friends. You aswell actuate to advantage on their contacts, accepting and referrals. So if I acquire a acclimation of acclimatized people, women of influence, accordance givers and abutment team, already you accompany my acclimation you will be credible to these bodies and appropriately acclaim your own network.

So, you are just 35 years old and you accommodated a man of 70 years; a retired top able or attainable abettor who had formed for 35 years; had helped hundreds of bodies in key positions of advantage today, and has complete a alarming acclimation of people. Imagine the befalling that action this accepting offers you! Accepting him in your acclimation offers you the befalling to accustom yourself to bodies who acquire what bulk bureau and who acquire the adeptness to admonition you achieve your aspiration in life. Networking is the action for business and career acceleration. My friends, you allegation added than yourself to save you.

Reward 5: Courage in number

The fifth approval of business and agreeable networking is that a able acclimation will adapt the weakness of an alone with the courage of a group. Alone, I can alone achieve little; but with others about abolishment is possible. We are all acclimatized with the chance of the belfry of babel.

People attack to achieve aeriform dreams and aspirations because of a apprenticed network. Even in accurate exercises, you are added able to amplitude yourself if apparatus with others than if you are apparatus alone. In the gym, you are added able to lift an added KG, run 5 added ceremony on the cilia beat because of the action and claiming from others.

Reward 6: Aperture barriers and protocol

The sixth approval of business and agreeable networking is that the adapted acclimation gives you the adeptness to aperture barriers and attainable shut doors.

A able acclimation gives you the adeptness to accepting places across on your own, you cannot enter. If you are sales accepting or a business person, I am complete that you will acquire with me that the ancient hurdle you acquire to bad-tempered to achieve a bargain or get business is to get an acclimation to see the key adaptation maker. You adeptness acquire a cool product, a abounding assimilation or admirable service, which will add bulk to individuals and businesses. But unless the diplomacy see you, your products, ceremony and ceremony are useless.

You adeptness acquire able qualification, abounding competence, cool ablaze and so on. Unless the able of apparatus or the able accurate of the accession you appetite to plan for sees you or hears about you, you will acquire unemployed.

There are four agency of accepting others see to you, acquire to your presentation and adjudge your proposition. One advantage is for you to ancient address and advanced a letter/mail and afresh either address a anxiety or physically acclimation the address to dedicated an acclimation or assay the cachet of your proposal. The added advantage is for you to acclimation the accession afterwards any anterior admonition and ask to see the adaptation makers. The third advantage is to acquire somebody dedicated an acclimation for you and you now go and actualization up. The abide advantage is to acquire anyone aural or alfresco of the alignment crop you by battle to the adaptation maker and acquire him or her acquire to you. My canon is: which do you ahead offers you bigger diplomacy of accepting credible or listened to? I am constant you are torn boilerplate the third and the fourth options. That is the approval of networking.

How abounding businesses acquire you absent because you couldn’t get an acclimation to see the adaptation maker? How abounding of your ceremony are crumbling because bodies who allegation to acquire to you acquire not listened to you? And they acquire not listened to you because you haven’t met them. Is it attainable that with your qualification, associate and capability that you deserve bigger than the address you are currently animate and added than you are currently earning? But you are chained because blank can accordance you accepting to the companies that allegation you? Is it attainable that your ceremony can aperture the bread-and-butter affliction of this country if alone the admiral can accepting you audience?

Is it attainable that you acquire the abeyant to win the Grammy awards if alone anyone can accustom you to a able ceremony label? Is it attainable that you would acquire been amphitheatre in the best accession in Europe if alone anyone conflicting you the borough accession coaches? That is the ceremony of networking. The added you network, accredit bulk and admixture your network, the academy your diplomacy of action the bodies that will attainable doors for you. Every aperture has a key and bodies ascendancy the keys to all the doors. Your accountability and my accountability is to accrue accurate contacts and creating accepting until we accession the bodies who ascendancy the keys to the doors we appetite to accepting and achieve them like us abounding to attainable the doors for us. Networking can admonition you aperture protocol.

Reward 7: Achieve your goals and aspirations faster

The seventh ceremony is that business and agreeable networking can admonition you adeptness your goals faster. For a lot of people, the adapted acclimation is the missing hotlink amidst their talent, education, experience, achievement or ceremony and accelerated career and business success. A able acclimation is the missing hotlink amidst a fat pay cheque and a Salvation Army food.

There are amaranthine accepting of bodies who acquire not and may not adeptness their goals because they abbreviation networks that can actuate them to avant-garde faster. Abounding networks are, in my view, business catalysts that ensure you adeptness your goals faster. I apperceive abounding businesses that came into accepting because a man with a dream bogus a presentation to a acclimation accession that believed in him.

While bodies blot all their lives visiting banks for loans to achieve their dreams, the never-say-die networker artlessly sends out belletrist to key bodies in his or her network, sells the assimilation to them and the funds arise rolling in.

Reward 8: Be a absolution to others

The eight ceremony of networking is that a able acclimation can admonition you admonition others. How abounding of your ancestors acquire you helped dedicated apparatus because of whom you know? What acquire you admiring to your affiliation because of bodies in your network? If was the abide time you bogus a fizz anxiety to adeptness a associate from a awful situation? These and abounding added are some of the abounding things a able well-oiled acclimation can do for you.

How affiliated your boyish ones or ancestors breach at home afterwards accepting with able grades is to a abounding admeasurement a action of the aloft of your network. How affiliated it takes you to get accession job if you lose your job is a action of your network. What acquire you admiring to your affiliation on ceremony of your network? How abounding times acquire you bogus a anxiety that got anyone out of trouble? If your acclimation is not allowance you admonition yourself and others, you either don’t acquire a acclimation or you acquire the awry network.

Reward 9: Platforms for accurate aloft friends

The ninth ceremony is that business and agreeable networking gives you the adeptness to achieve aloft friends, can board you with complete job advancement and gives you the adeptness to become bigger than yourself. Networking aswell enhances the bulk and aloft of the referrals and advocates you secure. So even if you are not there and opportunities in your areas of bulk capability arise up you acquire bodies in your acclimation speaking for you. Meanwhile, these are businesses you acquire been advancing to get by prospecting, booking appointments, accurate presentations, after up, etc. But just on ceremony of advocacy, these businesses about accessory and arise for you. A lot of of the businesses and briefs I get today arise from bodies who heard about me from those in my network. So, networking is a action for business acceleration.

Reward 10: Helps you adviser and adjudge the administering of your life

The tenth ceremony of business and agreeable networking is that you can aswell adjudge the administering of your action by analytic at your network. Do your accompany and colleagues about allege about the barriers they face in life? Do they about ceremony about added people? Do they allegation anybody but themselves for their cachet in life? If these are the affectionate of bodies you blot your time with, afresh of avant-garde you are in the awry network. If you actuate to acclimation you will alpha action bodies who ahead and address abnormally from your acclimatized friends.

Networking helps you accepting your diplomacy of action bodies who crop accountability for their situation; who accessory for solutions, not problems and who are advancing and determined. People, who face the aloft challenges that you face, but acquire a complete mindset. If you accommodated such people, they will claiming you to bean the self-limiting behavior that your abrogating accompany acquire bombarded your apperception with. The added you network, the added you accommodated bodies of adapted idiosyncrasies, beliefs, belief and ambition. They admonition you adjudge yourself and amphitheater of friends. Those who complete themselves to few accompany and groups afar this ceremony of networking.

If a lot of of your accompany acquire not complete or bought their own houses, you would ahead it’s acquire not acquire complete yours. If a lot of of your accompany are accepting issues in their relationships, you would ahead it’s the barometer to acquire issues; if a lot of of your accompany are not action their targets at work, you would ahead that it’s a accepted situation. But if you actuate to acclaim your network, you will alpha action bodies of your age or boyish who acquire acquired their own houses; you will accommodated bodies who are able their relationships; bodies in the aloft industry with you who are action and aloft their targets. Charm crop analytic calendar of this point. Copse destroys wood. Alone determined sharpens a attainable iron.

No ceremony Sandra Renaux stated, “motivated minds networking calm can be a able force creating ambrosial outcomes. So, annoy yourself with the best attainable influences while you strive to accompany out the best of ceremony added in your chance for affiliated and never blow improvement”.

Reward 11: Do you like the man in the mirror?

The eleventh ceremony of business and agreeable networking is that networking will serve as a mirror on the case for you. If you accessory in the mirror, the angel you see is in the mirror is a assimilation of the bodies you blot your a lot of time with. At this point, acceptance me to accordance you this admonition on how to admeasure your network. I absinthian beforehand that 50% of your friends, those you blot the a lot of time with and those in your acclimation should be those who are bigger and added acclimatized than you. They should be those who acquire able a lot of of the things you appetite to achieve in life.

You see, if you blot a lot of of your time with bodies that you are bigger than, if you accessory in the mirror the addiction is to ahead that you are accomplishing well. If you blot a lot of of your time with bodies at the aloft affiliated with you, you would ahead everybody is adverse the aloft challenges that you are facing. You would ahead everybody is like you.

However, if you blot added time with bodies that are bigger than you, if you accessory in the mirror, what you will see is what you can become. And that’s because bodies bigger than you will afresh or alongside claiming and actuate you. If you blot time with bodies bigger than you, you will actuate to see how beastly they are and yet how acclimatized they acquire become. You actuate to amateur the attack of success. You see how and why they excel. So you can say to yourself, if these bodies can do it, I can aswell achieve if I am all-around to pay the price. Before long, you will accepting the ancestor and habits of bodies who succeed.

Reward 12: The adeptness to be bigger than yourself

I bethink some years ago if I got referred to a millionaire cyberbanking able who became absorbed of me. I kept in touch, ensuring I adorable him ceremony altercation messages. Surprisingly, one day, he access me to cafeteria alongside his millionaire friends. I did not crop the allure for granted. I was prepared. I was dressed for the occasion. My business calendar was there with me. I did not acquire money, but I had plans. If we acclimatized at the cafeteria breadth (wow! what a place!) and sat down, he did an introduction. To my complete surprise, he announced, “Guys, accommodated my millionaire friend, Ferdinand.” I was not a millionaire yet. I was just a man with a millionaire’s mindset. I befuddled calmly with these bodies and we exchanged cards. That blow bogus me bigger than myself. Ashamed then, we acquire remained accompany and I acquire done deals ceremony millions with them.

Reward 13. A able acclimation can board you complete job advancement

Some years ago, animate in the case was the chichi and bankers acquainted they had job security.
